D'Amico Catering celebrated the opening of yet another sure-to-be-a-hit restaurant and bar, The Brooklyn at Edinburgh USA on June 6. From miniature pies, lobster rolls and burgers to tables overflowing with artisan cheeses, fresh vegetables and gourmet breads, the grand opening of The Brooklyn made sure no guest left hungry. 

To showcase the recently remodeled event and meeting spaces, D'Amico Catering served a variety of craft cocktails and hors d’oeuvres throughout the venue, encouraging guests to stroll through the different spaces. Featured cocktails included the "Up to Eleven" and "Whiskey Sour-ish," both of which can be found on The Brooklyn's menu. In Edinburgh's groom's suite, guests could sip on whiskey samples. To match the room's pink theme, sparkling rosé was served in the bridal suite.

The playful patterns and colors in the bridal suite made it a popular gathering space.
 
The venue offers ample space for meetings and corporate events. 
 
The banquet room boasts views of the golf course from its attached patio, perfect for summertime gatherings.

For those who came with an empty stomach, D'Amico Catering did not disappoint. An abundance of hors d’oeuvres were served in classic D'Amico fashion: miniature. From mini banh mi to mini lemon tarts, it would have been shameful to not grab a handful of everything.

To highlight the ballroom's capabilities, "Rock with U" from Fusion Band played hit songs, old and new, with an expansive dance floor popular among the youngest attendees. While children grooved on the dance floor, adults sipped wine, beer and cocktails at the bar; admired and tasted the bamboo bowl display wall, featuring tuna poke and Chef Josh's Vegan Bowl; and picked from a spread of local meats, artisan cheeses, fresh vegetables, spreads, nuts, olives and gourmet breads at the CSA table.

While guests listened to jazz performed by the Benny Weinbeck Trio in the banquet room, they could sample a variety of flatbreads and cool off with a glass of strawberry, lemon or cucumber infused water. Outside, tomahawk chops were served with baby heirloom carrots and red chimichurri at the grill.

Guests with a sweet tooth could indulge in towers of desserts including Mayan chocolate dipped churros, peanut butter tahini cookies, smoked sea salt chocolate chunk cookies, white chocolate hibiscus truffles, yuzu lemon tarts, key lime blackberry pie, milk chocolate hazelnut parfaits, raspberry mango profiteroles and French macarons.

Café and Bar Lurcat is introducing new fare to its already bountiful menu. The D'Amico & Partners restaurant is welcoming new flavors from octopus and tuna to steak and farrotto that offer something for everyone's taste buds. Here's a look at their new (and some old) menu items.

The Lab, a new type of taproom and beverage pilot facility, opened to the public on May 1. The BevSource creation is a combination of B2B and B2C, offering both a self-pour taproom for customers and an opportunity for local breweries to test new brews anonymously before selling at their own establishments. 

 

If you've ever gone to a brewery and thought the only thing missing was a dog peanut butter eating contest, you'll be glad to hear Loews Minneapolis Hotel and Kieran's Irish Pub will be hosting the second annual Pints for Pups fundraiser to benefit Safe Hands Rescue. From 4-8 p.m.
