Icehouse

Amid Icehouse’s old brick walls and exposed ductwork, the energy of the men who wrangled huge blocks of ice there a century ago is almost palpable. Before the days of electric refrigerators, these blocks were plucked from frozen lakes and rivers and brought to the Cedar Fuel and Ice Company for year-round storage and sale. As the years passed and cryogenic chambers replaced most iceboxes, the storied space became Icehouse Studios, a refuge for bands and businesses to conduct video shoots and rehearsals. Today, the walls echo not with ice scraping across the floor or directors shouting, "Action!” but rather with the songs of local musicians. Rachel Hutton of Minnesota Monthly observed how the "reclaimed wood boards and C-shaped leather booths add warmth and polish to the raw, gritty—and acoustically impressive—cavern."

Between sets, guests might hear forks pinging eagerly against the small plates that hold from-scratch creations. Some dishes, though, apparently require no silverware—Hutton admits to "gleefully" licking the duck demi-glace from the plate of a burger topped with foie gras and truffle butter. Listen also for the clinking of glass: local brews and specialty cocktails, a chandelier comprised of empty bottles, or guests trying to smuggle scoops of housemade bacon ice cream home in mason jars.


Reviews

Halibut was so fresh and nummy, I would go back for it. The Shortrib Pastrami was very unique and melt in your mouth good.
