The London-trained chef has worked all over the world before landing in Minnesota. He was in the kitchen at Cosmos and Heartland before taking at his current position with 3M. But Tré Donte' Hardy’s passion is Ophelia, named for his grandmother, who inspired his cooking, the restaurant-without-walls will pop up again inside Cook St. Paul.
Cook St. Paul is the Eastside diner with a Korean twist owned by Eddie Wu that has been opening its doors at night to would-be restaurants and helping act as a launching pad for new culinary talent.
Ophelia’s Mother’s Day dinner will be held Saturday May 13 with two seatings one beginning at 6:00 p.m. with another at 8:00 p.m. Four courses are just $40 with beverage pairings available at additional cost.
The menu will be inspired by spring: wild ramps, nettles, watercress and local trout and chicken. Total mom food and way better than a Big Hug Mug.
