“Very thrilling to see the Twin Cities represented in the Outstanding Restauranteur category, that’s a national category and really recognizes the people who make restaurants that anchor our food scene. So good to see founding foremother of Minneapolis farm-to-table cooking Brenda Langton is nominated for Spoonriver with her husband and business partner Timothy Kane. I am raising spoon dips in your general direction.” – Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl
