New Food at the Walker Art Center!


Published:

In honor of the Sculpture Garden's 25th anniversary, the Walker Art Center opened its artist-designed mini-golf course this week and introduced a few new food options! I had the good fortune to play the course on Wednesday night (bundled up in a winter hat and long underwear), fueled by one of the hot dogs from the new D'Amico Dog House food stand. They're offering a short selection of Hebrew National franks stuffed into pretzel-bread buns: a Chicago-esque dog, one topped with sauerkraut, a kids' dog, and a special, which I decided to try.

My "Chihuahua" Dog got big points for creativity and effort—house-made mole, white cheddar, pickled chile, fried tortilla strips, and smashed plantains—though I don't think I'll repeat the plantain-hot-dog combo.

If you get to the Walker's restaurant, Gather—the view of downtown from its terrace is one of the best in the city!—there's a new anniversary cocktail to try, the muddled-cherry-and-bourbon "Bridge Over Cherry Water," and a new Chocolate Spoonbridge Sampler dessert. I was always wowed by the looks of the restaurant's original Spoonbridge dessert, but thought its flavors could have used a little more fine-tuning, so I'm excited to try the new one designed by Randee Zarth, pastry chef at D’Amico Catering. It's described as a "triple-threat salute to art" that includes a chocolate mousse dome on chocolate shortbread, a chocolate almond cake filled with cherry cheesecake, and a bittersweet chocolate tart drizzled with cherry compote.

Intriguing...Anyone tried it yet?
