This Native American Restaurant Serves 'Pre-Colonization' Menu
There aren't exactly many Native American restaurants in this country, which is kind of a bummer. As a matter of fact, New York City boasts exactly zero. Minneapolis, however, will soon house one. Even cooler? Fortunately, the creator promises the entire menu will come from the days before colonization. Unfortunately, that means no pizza.
The eatery, which will be named The Sioux Chef, is set to feature the area's only Native American menu. The items on order here will be the real deal, as in actual meals that were prepared many, many moons ago. This means stuff like Wojapi soup -- which is made from duck and dandelion -- and stewed rabbit with fiddlehead fern. Many of the dishes are inherently familiar and exotic at the same time. In other words, it'll probably be delicious.
The chef behind The Sioux Chef, Sean Sherman, plans on having the restaurant open in a couple of months. In the meantime, he is playing his trade by catering events in the area.
