|Bluestem Bar & Table: Opening soon|
Bluestem will have a separate entrance off of Lyndale Avenue and will serve wines by the glass and bottle as well as select beers. As far as the story behind the name, French Meadow offers this explanation on their Facebook page:
French meadow has been working closely with authors Lansing Shepard and Paula Westmoreland of This Perennial Land, who inspired the name of Bluestem Bar & Table, French Meadow's new venue in the space behind the original cafe. Bluestem is the dominant native grass species of the Midwestern tall grass prairie, and is used in restoration areas for erosion control and more. We feel the name describes our intention to inform our guests on the third world crops, blue earth and restorative agriculture through our cafe platform and the organic farm to table foods we have served for over 25 years.
