Take a Look at Erik Anderson's Pop-Up Tasting Menu

Mpls.St.Paul Magazine's Stephanie March and Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl were both at returning-star-chef Erik Anderson's pop-up dinner at Haute Dish last night, according to their Instagram and Twitter accounts, @stephaniemarch and @DearDara. Anderson was formerly the chef de cuisine at Sea Change (and also cooked at Porter & Frye and the now-closed Auriga) before he left the Cities to open Nashville's much-acclaimed Catbird Seat. He announced that he was returning to Minneapolis in December and is planning to open his own restaurant in the Cities, focusing on French technique.

Putting the two accounts together gives us eleven out of the twelve course for the $200/person tasting menu (if you were there, feel free to comment with additions/corrections):

· Cod poached in duck fat with charred onion broth and broccolini
