Once again Ward 6 has proven why they are one of the best restaurants in St. Paul. After many trips for dinner or drinks, this time was for brunch. I must say, as usual, top notch in every way. The work and passion Eric and Bob have put into this place continues to show at every turn.
The service was fantastic, especially considering we were a group of 9 celebrating my nephew's fourth birthday. The menu is utter perfection for the surroundings with classics like Eggs Benedict, Shrimp & Grits and Biscuits & Gravy. Yet these aren't so simple, there is a spectacular twist on them all, and attention to the little details that makes each dish distinct from anything else. I must say, these were the best shrimp and grits I've had outside of Savannah, Georgia!
The history of the building is always striking to me, and I find something new in it to be amazed by at each visit. Ward 6 also plays an amazing part in the neighborhood. It is located at Payne Ave and Phalen Blvd, an area that has been long known by St. Paulites as not the best part of town. The dream of Eric and Bob has played a key role in reinventing the image of the Payne-Phalen neighborhood, and Firm Ground is proud to have been part of it!
Check out Ward 6 and all their original details at 858 Payne Ave. St. Paul, MN and grab either one of their signature cocktails or a beer from their primarily Minnesotan list!
