In Bloom at Keg & Case Market
Keg and Case is St. Paul’s most exciting eating and drinking project since beer was first brewed here in 1855! Inside the market you'll find a combination of chef-driven restaurants, craft beer and a uniquely curated market brimming with an eclectic mix of regional goods.
Outside, a bustling park is the backdrop for a diverse calendar of music, pop-up markets and events for all seasons. Revitalized and transformed, these welcoming spaces offer the community access to exceptional fare and new experiences with each visit.
Roasted things is wonderful, simple but different. We also enjoyed the "mushrooms" though not what your think but so num!!!
Great food and service to celebrate a birthday. Definitely would go back.
Fantastic! Original dishes. I didn’t think I liked Venison. I can’t wait to try more.
Enjoyed our dinner and will definitely be back! It was one of the best restaurants in the Twin Cities and our host Ben was wonderful.
Food was creative and interesting and service exceptional. But noise level was so high we couldn't converse. We won't return unless at a much quieter time (if any).
This is my 5th visit to In Bloom. Just love the place. I should be getting commission on the amount of people I've turned on to this restaurant. Food is absolutely delicious...value for money!!!! And they even have a decent low priced wine...which (as a European) I am extremely grateful for.
What a great meal. Service was very professional. Great selection of wine.
Too noisy to talk with our guests. We ordered the pheasant and we were brought the chicken. When we asked about it the server admitted she made a mistake. She did see that we were not charged for the chicken. Noise level which was only music when we arrived prohibited conversation and may have contributed to our servers mistake
For a restaurant that clearly specializes in meats, this place has awesome vegetarian offerings as well! Cocktails are well-crafted with fine ingredients. Lovely setting for dining, and low-key, friendly staff.
Top notch food. I’ve got much respect for the whole operation. Much like their other ventures, the food and service is always on point.
Overall i was impressed by In Bloom; I was looking forward to trying it, as I've heard so many rave reviews. For the most part, it lived up to them! I love the open-fire cooking method in the open kitchen, giving the dining area a warm, homey ambiance and entertaining counter-sitters. The service was impeccable- knowledgeable, courteous and helpful - and food was overall lovely. Given that the vegetables are given their own section on the menu, I was hoping to be more impressed, but the mushroom dish as well as the mushrooms with the main were not very flavorful. However, the rest of the food was imaginative, perfectly cooked and delightful. The venison ragu with ricotta gnudi was delicious and cozy, and the grilled trout was one of the better dishes I've had in a while - glorious flavors, delicate texture. The halibut cheeks were not what we were expecting - not the delicate, flaky cut I think of as cheeks, but significantly meatier, like a fillet. Our cocktails and wine were all delicious, and they have lovely in-house versions of my favorite classics, that pair beautifully with the menu. The space itself, design-wise, was overall less than I was hoping for- I had heard good things, but as a designer I found the eclecticism poorly matched between the 90s-esque pink lights and murals with the rough-hewn "hearth" around the grill- the fake rock was too much, and the tile floor seemed periliously slippery. The white metal cut-out railings and oddly patterned booths hearkened back to the early 2000s, not my favorite. But the firelight, the split-height ceilings and the variety of seating (cozy booths, long lines of counter seating) made the space at once seem more spacious and more cozy. I loved watching the clearly passionate chefs prepare everything, and I can't wait to explore more of the menu. I would definitely go back!
Three of us had a wonderful dinner on Mothers Day. This was a much anticipated night, and In Bloom (mostly) did not disappoint. We started with three different cocktails and they were all delightful. We popped for $6 service of bread which was good. The treat here was the butter with black sea salt! We shared the table serving of the roasted venison leg and shared a serving of the roasted mushrooms. None of us had venison served in that way, so it was a bit of a gamble. It paid off though. It was served with some spring veggies and au jus. The mushrooms were good but a little awkward to share. My one and only negative on the night, and this seems dumb, but the steak knives that were brought to our table were absolutely inadequate to cut through the meat. I'm not saying the venison was necessarily tough, but the knives were just cruddy. I wish I had known and I would have brought my ginsu knives from home. It was a struggle with each cut, and you had to cut a lot! I mentioned this to our fabulous waitperson, and she said she had heard that complaint before. SO..before you drop $48 on the venison leg, ask to test out the knives. Or just take a knife with you.
Great brunch, venison chilaquiles is a top 5 brunch dish in the metro right now. You will not regret a visit to In Bloom.
I will probably try it again. It was my first visit.
This is our third visit and was the best food adventure yet at In Bloom! We sat at the counter with a view to the cooking which was fun, and our server was amazing!! He helped refine our order w a different salad for better balance with our duck heart appetizer. The gem salad seemed rather ordinary on the menu but, as with everything here, it was not at all ordinary! Delicious mix of vinegar and sweet with featherlight lettuce--we appreciated the tip. Then we split the prime rib hash that had a rich, dark, delicious and satisfying without approaching cloying in any way--lovely. The French 75 brunch cocktail made everything happier and pink. Almost forgot the great code and the chocolate mascarpone dutch baby for dessert. Wow. A wonderful brunch in a stunning location!
Wonderful! We sampled many things from the menu as there were four of us and everything was so fresh, flavorful, creative and beautiful. We are already trying to coordinate time to go again and I have told many people about our experience!
World class in every way. Run, don’t walk, to In Bloom!
Incredible atmosphere and knowledgeable staff!! Food was spectacular. It was so refreshing to dine and have a wonderful dining experience- from the service to the food! Thank you! We’ll be back!!
This was our second time here and it was again, fabulous! The family tried most of the venison options and I tried other options. Flavors were fantastic!
Sitting at the counter, Facing the enormous wood fire, was a memorable occasion. Watching our food being prepared over open flames or in the pizza oven was an amazing experience. The food was shareable, and totally delicious. Cocktails were nicely crafted, and the wine selection was quite broad. Can't wait to go back.
Everything we had was cooked perfectly, and the sauces were sophisticated without being heavy. We've seen a lot of restaurants in the Twin Cities try too hard with ad hoc results. The menu here is disciplined, subtle, and generous. Next time we will order bread service, as there were opportunities with every plate for dipping.
Overall is a good gourmet food. Wagy meat was hard, we changed it to a different meal with no problems. Service was exceptional. Birthday dessert was free. Unfortunately, they serve venison leg on weekends mostly. Price is at the high level.
Service was great and the food was fabulous as usual except for the asparagus dish was mediocre at best. It’s the only thing we have ever had that was not fantastic.
It was fine, but for the price I felt the food was lack luster. We tried 5 separate dishes and there wasn't one that had me wanting to come back and try again.
The ambience however is second to none, one of the most beautiful restaurants I've seen!
The menu had some very unique offerings… I’ve never had venison the way they prepared it. It was absolutely delicious and so were the oysters and scallops. The pork belly was also amazing! I’m getting hungry Just thinking about the fabulous meal!
can’t wait to visit again
Great meat! Great sides! Great service! Awesome old fashioned!
It was a fine experience, the food was decent though not good enough to justify the price. Nothing outside the box. The kind of place you are happy you tried buy would never go back or recommend.
Food was terrific, but vegetables, while delicious, too small to share. Service was just okay.
We had a great night at In Bloom - our server Josh was wonderful!
My food was too salty. I had a venison sandwich. The menu was pretty small I had a hard time ordering food .
Unbelievable! Food and Service was exceptional! The cocktails were super fun and the wine list was awesome!
There was definitely a French influence to this place. We started off with cocktails. I had an Old Fashioned (one of the best I've had) and my wife had the Floro---- (can't remember the whole name). The trout was fantastic. With the grenobloise sauce of browned butter and capers, it just seemed to melt in your mouth. My wife had the venison with mole. The mole was really good. It managed to elevate the venison to another level. Sounds like the menu gets updated each season. We definitely plan on going back.
I had clients in from New York and they loved the food. We had a great server - attentive, but not in the way. Wonderful evening.
Loved the explosion of complex flavors! This was truly one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. I already know what I'll be ordering the next time I visit: the mushroom/polenta dish, pork belly and venison tartar ... cannot wait :-)
A great dining experience, I would highly recommend going to In Bloom.
We had the duck hearts, broiled oyster, grilled mushrooms and venison backstrap‘s.
All very delicious.
The food is excellent. Great choices and the preparation and presentation is fantastic. The menu is difficult to understand unless you are a true “Foodie”. We needed a thorough explanation of many of the items listed and this seemed to annoy our server. Sorry, but I am not going to order something without knowing what it is and how it is prepared. It is a little noisy and staff was doing laps around the place. Know this going into In Bloom and you will have a wonderful evening
Lovely ambiance, delicious and rare meats, very good service; the two wines we tried were very acidic, unfortunately, and fairly expensive.
It was fantastic
We had the venison. It was the rarest thing I have ever seen. It was $49 for a 'table entree'. The outside 1/3 was well done, and the inside looked like it got hit by a car yesterday and had been sitting on the road. Two of our group love really rare steaks, and even they were grossed out. The steak knives they have are a very nice brand, but they are extremely dull and you couldn't even cut the meat with it. They must put them in the dishwasher and never sharpen them. We also got the $25 scallops, and we got 3. That's a little ridiculous. Perhaps the other entrees are better, but I don't think I want to pay $99 for the 'table steak'. Sorry.
it was hard to fill in the blanks above as the food experience was mixed. My trout was excellent, terrific. But someone else ordered prawns, rather, ONE prawn. That's just not enough for a meal. Maybe it weighed about a quarter of a pound, maybe it didn't. That scimpy a meal is not OK. The scallops were kinda skimpy too. The mushroom vegetable dish was delicious but the roasted carrots and broccolini pretty disappointing.
So, it's a mixed record.
Also, too loud!
