Starting in September Dakota’s menu takes center stage.
We’re waiving cover fees on Mondays so fans of our food can revel in our menu.
For more than 35 years Dakota has had a reputation for both its world-class music and cuisine. However, since reopening one year ago fans have only been able to experience our menu if they purchase a ticket to one of our stellar musical performances. Now Mondays will be set aside to shine the spotlight on our amazing menu and the talents of our extraordinary culinary team led by Executive Chef Remy Pettus.
With Southern-inspired foods, flavors and influences, our menu pays homage to the birthplace of American music. It’s familiar – and revered – territory for Chef Pettus. His Southern heritage has roots dating back to the 1700s. As a result, Dakota’s menu is rich with dishes that are familiar yet modern, and casual, yet creative.
Chef Pettus’s dishes riff on classic Southern foods like fried chicken, gumbo, shrimp & grits, pimento cheese and crawfish gumbo. He also sprinkles in a mix of freshly made pastas and other dishes that change with the seasons. The chef’s signature style is grounded in European technique while emphasizing local, seasonal ingredients. The culmination of all these influences is a menu unlike any other in the Twin Cities and one that is eminently explorable.
Featuring Pick-a-Rib Three: The Music of The Benny Goodman, served up hot and saucy! Hard-swinging clarinet music that gets your toes tapping and puts a smile on your face.
