South Minneapolis has a new Midwest-style supper club.
The Creekside Supper Club & Lounge has taken up residence in the former Pepito (and briefly El Burrito) space next to the Parkway Theater. It is owned by Ward Johnson, who also owns The Parkway.
Johnson hired chef Eli Wollenzien of Coalition and Red Sauce Rebellion to run the kitchen.
As for the atmosphere of the place, a press release says it all:
“The Creekside is billed as an ‘Authentic Midwestern Supper Club.’ What does that mean? It’s something you can immediately identify with if you’ve ever been there, but it’s a bit difficult to articulate. This certainly means you’ll see classics like prime rib, steaks and seafood among the main dishes. A meal usually starts with a platter of relish. Maple butter popovers are a A must! An Old Fashioned brandy is a staple on the cocktail menu. And of course, there’s fish fry. With the exception of the life-size giant stream we’ve built in the lobby, the decor is decidedly undesigned Our primary goal was an immersive experience that makes guests feel warm and welcomed above all else.”
Looking at the menu online, it looks like there are some classic ice creams for after dinner as well.
