Friday Feast-Red Cow

LandandLiving Staff - Saturday, June 08, 2013

Well hello again feasters and welcome to Friday Feast 2.0.

 After having a kid and losing a couple lbs I am once again ready to treat my body like an amusement park. Kicking off this new and improved version of The Feast will be the Red Cow at 50th and France in Edina. They specialize in "Fine Burgers", homemade samiches,soups and deliciously delectable shareables, or appetizers for the lay person. I had high hopes considering I was already impressed with this undoubtedly well thought out restaurants name in which the the terms red wine and beef were crammed into an extruder and the name Red Cow was spat out. Lets find out....

BBQ angus burger, blue cheese, onion petals, bacon, BBQ sauce

Probably the least over cooked burger we had was the BBQ burger was still tasty. Being a blue cheese fan I could have used a bit more of it to keep the sweetness in check but overall it was a decent twist on the normally predictable BBQ burger. 3.5 out of 5 forks.

Barcelona angus burger, manchego, prosciutto, piquillo pepper & smoked aioli

Easily the tastiest burger we had. Smoky, salty, tangy with a hint of sweet and spice. I would definitely order this guy a gain but would ask them to make sure to cook it to temp. 4 out of 5 forks.



Royale angus burger, pork belly, brie, arugula & tomato jam

The Royale was a bit of a disappointment. I forgot it had pork belly and when I remembered I couldn't find any. Would have liked more belly and would have paid more to include it. Other than the idea of the pork belly it was an ordinary, overcooked burger. 2.5 out of 5 forks.

Poutines saucy goodness over hand-cut fries braised beef & Summit beer cheese apples, bacon & bleu cheese

We chose the apples, bacon and blue cheese option. The flavors where really great except for the dish being cold. Would have liked the "sauce" to be at least warm and the apples the be slightly cooked or caramelized. Great idea but the execution was lacking.



Wisconsin Cheese Curds beer-battered, served w/triple berry ketchup

Damn it I love good cheese curds! These were very good. Very lightly breaded and homemade and served with a cool berry ketchup. Great take on a classic. 4 out of 5 forks.

Grinder Genoa salami, capicola, pastrami, gruyere, giardinara veggies & pepper aioli on soft hoagie

Who wouldn't like to Grind-er ...? This samich reminded me of a hot beef but with Italian cuts. Very delicious and original and would be prefect if you can't decide between a Sicilian and a hot beef. 4 out of 5 forks.

Overall I think Red Cow has lot to offer. The big complaint I have is that none of the burgers were cooked Medium Rare like we asked and besides vegetarians and vegans nothing annoys me more than an overcooked burger. Service was extremely friendly and I appreciated the manager coming over and chatting with us. Decor is warm and dimly lit and would be great place to meet a friend, a date or watch game. The menu looks extremely promising and I would have no problem meeting a group here again.
