Go to the Butcher Block for authentic Roman dishes, a warm and inviting atmosphere, great desserts and bar, and a splendid evening. I'm a regular because it's the best.

Ambience was first-rate. Slightly disappointed in the Ravioli, as it was very salty.

What You'll Get

Ethical foodies will go to great lengths for sustainability, harvesting their own crops before every meal and generating wind power by riding to work on a vintage pterodactyl. Stay sustainable without breaking a sweat with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sustainable Italian fare and drinks at The Butcher Block on East Hennepin Avenue.

The Butcher Block's chefs prep grass-fed meats and organic produce into succulent Italian cuisine. Flavors of Rome and Sicily infiltrate each salad, including the grilled portabella, served with arugula and a parmesan crisp ($12), or the Caesar, which wears a crown of rosemary-garlic croutons, just as Julius Caesar did. House-made pasta includes a shrimp and pesto cavatelli ($15) and an exotic, flavor-blending gnocchi caprese ($14). The house-ground pork sausage in the rigatoni alla norcina pumps up the protein ($16), as do other meaty selections, such as the chicken parmesana with rustic mashed potatoes ($18) or a meatball model of a snowperson. Gourmands can wash down their dishes with high-end wines, such as Astoria Lounge sweet prosecco from Veneto ($8/glass) or Villa Cafaggio chianti classico from Tuscany ($10/glass).

About The Butcher Block Restaurant

For nearly two decades, Chef Filippo Caffari mastered the skills of butchery in Rome. Since relocating to Minneapolis, the executive chef of The Butcher Block Restaurant draws upon that training to prepare a range of organic, grass-fed, and sustainable meats. On his authentic Italian menu, mashed potatoes and mushrooms accompany lamb scottadito, and house-ground pork sausage flavors a rigatoni in a truffle cream sauce.

Even without meat, Chef Filippo brings out Italy's flavors with items like butternut squash ravioli in a brown butter and sage sauce. He concludes meals with desserts such as tiramisu infused with housemade limoncello and zucchini cake. To complement these delicacies, guests can peruse a wine list that features bottles from around the world.
