Life is better with bacon — at least for paleo and keto fanatics. Luckily, a new pork-centric restaurant has just landed in the Twin Cities, so meat-lovers will be able to have their bacon and eat it too.
Colorado-based Bacon Social House offers diners a selection of scratch-made snacks that will leave you wanting more. And while it might be a bacon fan’s dream come true, the eatery is serving up more than just bacon bites. In fact, your veg-head friends might end up discovering one of their favorite new spots, too.
We know what you’re thinking: “bacon” and “healthy” don’t typically go hand-in-hand. But owner and restaurateur David Dill has always focused on satisfying various dietary restrictions. Bacon-wrapped meatloaf, bacon hash, bacon meatballs, BBQ bacon deviled eggs, and flank steak are just a few options that paleo and keto dieters will have to choose from, while vegetarians will be able to swoon over veggie bowls, avocado toast, salads, and the increasingly popular Impossible Burger.
The full-service brunch and dinner space also has gluten-free options, and their selection of lighter fare is made to appeal to health-conscious patrons. Not only do they take pride in preparing foods with local ingredients, but there’s also no shortage of veggies on their menu. Peppers, beets, tomatoes, parsnips, and cauliflower are just a few of the produce superstars that add a boost of color and nutrients to the bacon-based dishes.
Of course, if you’re in the mood to indulge, Bacon has its fair share of hearty fare to choose from, including a BLT with thick-cut habanero bacon, tomato, lettuce, and avocado mayonnaise positioned between a cheddar waffle. And if you have a sweet tooth, they also have dangerously delicious desserts available, including—you guessed it—chocolate bacon.
You’ll be able to find Bacon in downtown Minneapolis at 3rd St. S. and Park Ave. Just stroll through the new Canopy by Hilton, and you’ll find their entrance. This is the restaurant’s first location outside of Colorado, and their friendly vibes are sure to bring more than just food to Minneapolis.
Bacon has quickly become a go-to neighborhood spot since their OG spot first opened in Denver in 2015. And they’re looking to evoke a culture of community in their Twin Cities outpost with a spacious, mid-century modern design and shareable bites. The Minneapolis food scene and growth of the Downtown East area appealed to Dill, giving him reason to expand and open his third location in new territory. To celebrate the community, Dill will be incorporating some local dishes and brews into the standard menu.
So do yourself a favor and add Bacon to your list of restaurants to try this summer. Head over to their Instagram now to get a sneak peek of their drool-worthy bites.
