New bar, farm-to-table restaurant to open

From the folks who brought you the much-loved French Meadow Bakery & Cafe comes a new place: Bluestem Bar + Table, set to open this Monday, June 17 on Lyndale, adjacent to the French Meadow.

Owners say Bluestem Bar, which is named for a deep-rooted, native Minnesota prairie grass, “is an intimate gathering spot for drinks and small plates.” It fills the vacant bakery space just south of the French Meadow.

“Bluestem and French Meadow share a building, but these are two very different venues,” says French Meadow co-owner and founder Lynn Gordon. “Bluestem’s space and menu are decidedly more upscale and more experiential.”

Both Bluestem and French Meadow are located on Lyndale Avenue South, just south of 26th Street in Minneapolis.
