I questioned my sanity each of the three times I got lost on 62 and 35W but it was well worth the angst. Wise Acres was fantastic.
I grabbed a seat at the bar and Wise Acre has some of the most comfortable bar stools. There is a limited menu and a few nightly specials. I am a big fan of corn and when I saw one of the specials was a corn sampler, I figured what the heck. I also ordered a bacon cheeseburger (more on that later).
Not knowing what was included in the sampler I was a little anxious. The dish was delivered with three variations; a small pickled piece of corn, two large corn fritters, a full ear plus a tomato salad with basil. All of this sat on a swath of Habanero pepper sauce. The pickled corn was interesting and fun, not something I would race for, but it is now crossed off the list of items to try. The ear was very good. Growing up in NJ I ate an abundance of NJ corn and this season has been great. The Minnesota corn has a slightly smaller kernel, a little chewier and led sweet. Even with these differences and my bias the corn was delicious. The tomato salad was sweet and delicious and the hit of the plate were the fritters. They were perfectly fried, sweet, and had great flavor. And when you dipped in the Habanero sauce, it was even better.
The main event was the Royal brie and bacon burger with wild rice slaw, kwik pickles, farm fries and house made ketchup. The restaurant offers a full 1/3 pound of Scottish Highland beef, which was perfectly cooked to medium rare. I was also concerned that the brie would overpower the meat, but this grass-fed meat had a deep and rich flavor and was a perfect complement. The thick cut bacon was delicious and it was encased in a great bun. The fries were also equal to the quality of the burger, perfectly fried; and a good amount to satisfy any hunger. The house made ketchup was fabulous.
Overall, I really enjoyed everything about Wise Acre Eatery.
