Lake Harriet has Bread & Pickle
, Minnehaha Falls has Sea Salt
, and Lake Calhoun has Tin Fish
. Lake Nokomis is arguably a just as popular and beloved warm-weather recreation destination, but somehow it had been overlooked as a site for a small waterfront eatery. That is, until last summer, when the Minneapolis Parks Board began accepting proposals for a concession stand that was wallet-friendly, accommodating to families, and would offer some healthy options on its menu. It wasn't too long before they announced that eatery would be Sandcastle
, headed by Piccolo chef Doug Flicker, his wife and co-owner Amy Greeley, and business partner Chele Payer. Excitement followed, construction started, menus were planned, and now as beach season is imminent, everyone is wondering what's up with Sandcastle
. The Hot Dish caught up with Greeley to get some answers.
