I had to explain “hanger” to someone.
Hungry + Angry.
I’m quite certain I did not make this up. It is a term floating out there in the food universe.
A certain someone, upon receiving a possibly snarky comment from me, will ask if I am hangry…. if I’ve eaten yet that day…
And while hanger has nothing really to do with the below, it seemed a semi decent segway.
I mean, if I ever have a hangry episode, I know where I can go to cure it.
Go to Monello.
Monello recently opened in Minneapolis and we were lucky enough to be invited to a soft opening. We spent the evening ordering half the menu, sharing plates and critiquing between the four of us. Though might I say, no critique was necessary.
The plating was beautiful, the flavors precise and divine. The service on point and beyond.
I’m still dying over the Sea Bass Crudo.
I consider going to get this crudo at least 4 days of the week. I could eat crudo at every meal. And Minneapolis is getting its fair share of crudo restaurants these days. Monello does it right.
I am not kidding when I said we ordered half the menu.
We loved it so much, we went back just a week later…. And ordered the other half of the menu.
There may be literally only two items we haven’t tried? I say, someone go back with me for those two dishes 🙂
Have you been yet?
