Last month I photographed Home Wine Kitchen in Maplewood for Sauce Magazine. Nestled in a strip of retail stores and restaurants Home Wine Kitchen has a rustic design (with some beautiful photography on the walls) and some amazing food. Chef Cassandra Vires (who was super cool to work with) changes her menu frequently with a focus on local and seasonal ingredients.
Home Wine Kitchen’s dishes feature new takes on old classics, like chicken and waffles and a very interesting Eggs Benedict. The space is small and homey, and reservations are suggested. Despite my dislike of getting up early for brunch, I’m going to have to take Dr. Fiance for at some point.
