Your challenge: In 250 words or fewer, propose the Twin Cities area restaurant, cafe or bar that you would create if money was no object. Where would it be located? What would be served? What would the decor be like, who might work there, eat there, supply the place with food? What would it be called? Signature drink? Amuse bouches? Go nuts!
We’re looking for ideas that would fill interesting niches in the local dining scene, dovetail with local food traditions and suppliers and/or vividly stimulate the appetite. Additional consideration will be given for particularly creative, outlandish or entertaining suggestions.
Entries can come in the form of descriptive paragraphs, a sample menu, song lyrics… whatever.
The winner of our contest will receive a $50 gift card to Annona Gourmet, redeemable for vibrantly bright balsamic vinegars, artisanal olive oils and gourmet sea salts, among other things.
Two runners up will receive $20 gift cards to Annona Gourmet.
Winning entries will be published on the Heavy Table.

Deadline is midnight, Friday Feb. 27.
