UMAMI

As part of our new Minneapolis Residency, we’re introducing the first of three limited time concepts: UMAMI. Those of you who are fans from WAY back remember the first time we hit the road while building a new space: UMAMI by Travail, where we turned a fried chicken joint in NoMi into a pre-fixe meal featuring some of our favorite asian dishes and flavors. Well, it’s back! Here’s what you can expect….

Our chefs will be serving a pre-fixe menu (in true Travail fashion) including Dim Sum cart service, shared family courses, amuse bites, sake bombs, and more. Special beverage flights will be also be available, which will include juice, sake, wine, beer and other styles of beverage curated to complement the current menu. Bar service and an a la carte menu will also be available on a first come, first served basis.

There will be 4 seatings per evening.
Tasting Menu Tickets: $85 per person + tax and service fees
Additional Beverage Flight Tickets: $55 per person (tax included) + service fee

Large Parties

Large parties will most likely be sat in a row due to how the restaurant is setup and how dinner service functions. We have limited seating for parties greater than 8 in the new space. If you would like to host a larger group, please contact us at reservations@travailkitchen.com

90s Fine Flicker

MARCH - MAY

Starting at the end of March, Travail will be serving its second concept at the Minneapolis residency90s 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.
