It’s official..Minneapolis is one great restaurant city. After having the chance to sample several creative and unique menus, I now see why some our calling this the hottest new restaurant town in the U.S.
No other restaurant exemplifies the spirit of the city’s gastronomic identity better than GYST Fermentation Bar in the city’s Whittier neighborhood. From its peanut butter and cabbage kimchi to its motherboard of cheeses, meats, olives and fermented vegetables, sisters and owners Ki and Mel Guse also feature wines from family run vineyards they discovered in France, Slovenia and the Black Sea Republic of Georgia.
Fermentation isn’t an experiment. We eat fermented foods every day..bread, cheese, yoghurt, chocolate, beer, coffee to name a few.
As owner Mel says, “Preservation has now become innovation.”
