Signature Drink: Traditional Sazerac

What better way to toast the changing of the leaves and arrival of cool fall breezes than with a cozy snifter of Sazerac crafted by the talented Esker Grove bar manager Jon Olson?

Nestled between the Walker Art Center’s contemporary collections and iconic Minneapolis landmarks, Esker Grove has attracted a following of its own. The restaurant was recently named one of the Travel Channel’s 10 best international museum restaurants and has quickly become a favorite local spot to enjoy New American fare and creative cocktails.
