Summer Is Coming: Park Pavillion Eats Are About to Be Unleashed

When we can eat at Sandcastle, Sea Salt, The Tin Fish, Bread & Pickle and a new Como Lake eatery will open.

Ready for summer

Sandcastle on the shores of Lake Nokomis, run by chef Doug Flicker, wife Amy Greeley and Chele Payer will throw an opening party next Friday April 17. This will be the first season that the stand will have its full seating area, for sipping beer and wine (or the addictive horchata, we don't judge). Grab a Dog Flicker and some cheese curds and declare this summer started.

Sea Salt returns in all its oyster-shucking glory beside Minnehaha Falls Friday April 17. The seafood heavy menu continues to be sourced from Coastal Seafoods along with Sebastian Joe's ice cream and Peace coffee.

Bread & Pickle, the Kim Bartmann owned concession stand located inside the Lake Harriet band shell will begin serving hot dogs, ice cream and breakfast treats at the end of April.

While the Tin Fish hasn't announced their precise opening date (likely late April) they did have some exciting news over the winter. They will be opening a second Tin Fish location in Edina at the Braemar Golf Course that will serve a similar menu to the Lake Calhoun location.

Another newcomer is Como Dockside Lakeside Pavilion, which will serve New Orleans-style food from the ownership team behind downtown St. Paul's Amsterdam Bar. The restaurant replaces Black Bear Crossings and will open in May.
