This is a follow up visit, six months after opening, of the Tavern on the Hill, in a new development near the University in Duluth, MN. It’s the weekend of the annual world-famous “Grandma’s Marathon,” the foot race course that hugs the shore of Lake Superior. Runners from all over the world (and locally) love the race for its relatively flat course and ideal running temps.
Minnesota bureau chief and his posse are no different, and, after finishing their own workout were looking for a little carb replacement therapy away from the race crowds. They headed over the hill to hit the TOTH.
The restaurant has a deep menu, designed to appeal to most every taste; it includes burgers, sandwiches, artisan pizzas and flatbreads, as well as some vegetarian selections, from locally hand-culled produce….. and even sushi!
The group had two orders of wings, BBQ and with Frank’s, the latter which they preferred as use of Frank’s Buffalo sauce is not common with Duluth wings.
A small pizza was shared and enjoyed, by acclimation, the rings received a table full of applause, interestingly, as Duluth has a lot of good o-rings.
The kitchen is open late, which is a rarity in town. Next time you’re in out in the city and desire a nice meal away from the tourist centers, check out the Tavern on the Hill.
