Blue Plate Restaurants

The Star Tribune has a write-up of Blue Plate Restaurants today. You know, the folks behind the Highland, Longfellow, and Edina Grills, and the Groveland Tap.

Blue Plate finding special niche in Twin Cities restaurant scene

The roster now includes the Highland Grill and Groveland Tap in St. Paul, the Longfellow Grill in Minneapolis and the Edina Grill on France Avenue near W. 50th St. There are plans to open two more stores in the next two years, Burley said.

The combination of higher-scale menus paired with a concept that successfully offers breakfast, lunch and dinner along with bar service makes Blue Plate a rarity in the business, said David Kristal, CEO of the Embers and Joey’s restaurant franchising companies.

I know Fritz is a big fan of Highland. Carly and I are partial to Longfellow. I could see Matt leaning toward the Groveland Tap.

Let’s find out which one tops the list among readers of The Deets.

  1. I’ve been to the Longfellow a handful of times, Highland many, many more. Each time I’ve been to Longfellow, there has been a fiasco involving seating, in particular me and my party NOT being seated in a timely manner. I’ve watched table upon table sit open and uncleared while my temper flared. And it’s sad because it has a great setup with the outdoor seating and a great bar area.
