Restaurant Week just concluded in the Twin Cities and the list this past go-round wasn’t all that exciting or were places that have been visited already. One place did stand out with its connection to the all-new Fillmore that just opened up and that place is Trax Burgers & Bar. The Trax has a really cool design with old records scattered all throughout, nice long bar for those looking to pony up and a decent sized patio when mother nature shows us her enjoyable side. Both venues are owned by Live Nation, and while these music executives may have wanted to debut in the top 10, it needs a little refining.
The menu’s that get launched during Restaurant Week allow for guests to pick from; an app, main dish and sometimes even a dessert, all for one flat fee. For Trax, it was an app and a main dish. For this first visit, the following dishes were ordered; Brussel Sprouts and Scotch Eggs for starters and the Drunken Chicken Sandwich and Trax Burger as the main dishes. Let’s break it down.
If you’re a Brussel Sprout fan, you may want to order this side piece with your meal. Carolina mustard sauce, pomegranate, brown butter powder is used for this dish, don’t be surprised if you’re not completely excited that you did. You will certainly get plenty to share with the rest of the table, but they’re nothing all that special.
All-in-all, it’s an easy place to grab a meal if you have plans to catch a show at the Fillmore, but there are plenty of other options just blocks away, especially the burger masterpieces found at Parlour. Plenty of options on the menu and a return visit may just happen....
