10 Aug A Weekend in Wayzata
Minnesota summers can’t be beat! People seem to come alive after the brutal Winter and fickle Spring and do everything in their power to soak up every last sunny day. Because of this I love to take mini “staycations” to fully embrace what our lovely state has to offer.
For our 1st Anniversary, Tim and I spent the weekend in Wayzata. It was a perfect getaway from our busy lives in Minneapolis and felt like we were much farther away from home.
We stayed at Hotel Landing which just opened this summer and is a great addition to the picturesque downtown.
These comfy robes were one of my favorite parts of this hotel. I could have lived in these the entire weekend!
The restaurants in Wayzata are some of my favorites! This weekend we went to 6Smith for lunch Nine Twenty Five for dinner and Bellecour for brunch. All off these spots were amazing and our weekend was perfect. Here are some of the details:
Hotel Landing: Great location close to everything in downtown. Super friendly staff, the coziest robes and cute bikes to use while you stay. The front porch reminds me of an old southern mansion and is perfect for before dinner drinks.
6Smith: Gorgeous space with views of the lake. My favorites are the Lobster Roll or Sliders (during Happy Hour) and the Tuna Poke. So many options for seating in the summer ranging from a ground level patio, inside, or rooftop patio.
Nine Twenty Five: The brand new restaurant inside Hotel Landing is off to a good start! With two levels of seating (inside and out) this spot is definitely visually appealing. On nice days I definitely recommend the patio. My favorites on the menu were the Alpine Cheese- Stuffed Meatball, and the Arctic Char.
Bellecour: The highly anticipated sister restaurant to Gavin Kaysen’s Spoon and Stable is a must try. Be sure to make reservations in advance because it’s a pretty tough place to get into. Similarly to the other restaurants this one is gorgeous inside, but a totally different vibe. The others feel nautically inspired where Bellecour feels like a French garden. My food picks for brunch are the Steak and Eggs (Steak Et Oeufs) and the Crepe Cake. Surprisingly the most memorable part was my cocktail- Picnic in Provence, and might the best I’ve had in the city, it was light, refreshing and bubbly a perfect pair for brunch!
