Starting at the end of March, Travail will be serving its second concept at the Minneapolis residency: 90s Fine Flicker. Chef Doug Flicker ushered in a new era of fine dining in Minneapolis in the 90s with his legendary restaurant Auriga, and later went on to create Piccolo and Esker Grove. He helped put the Twin Cities on the map as a food destination and influenced many of the chefs and restaurants that exist in the area today. He’s a long time friend of Travail, and even worked with two of Travail’s owners, a young James Winberg and Mike Brown at Porter & Frye, where the two originally met. Travail’s second concept will bring back the 90s fine dining scene in all its glory with a coursed menu in collaboration with Doug Flicker himself.

The chefs will be serving a pre-fixe menu inspired by the 90s fine dining scene and influential chefs from that time. Special beverage flights will be also be available, which will include juice, wine, beer and other styles of beverage curated to complement the current menu.

Ticketed Reservations and pricing will be available at the end of January 2019.
Member pre-sale tickets will be available January 29.
General public tickets will be available January 30.

Similar to Travail now, we will offer a full cocktail, beer, and wine menu plus a smaller a la carte menu. All seats will be available on a first come first served basis. Orders will also be available for take out.

We have limited seating for parties over 4 in the new space. If you would like to host a larger group, please contact us at reservations@travailkitchen.com
