What is Mill Valley Kitchen?

If you want to get a taste test of Mill Valley Kitchen now, you can head up to St. Louis Park.  That Mill Valley Kitchen location opened in 2011.  The idea behind the restaurant was to be health-focused and tribute the Mill Valley region of Northern California.


Foods that you will enjoy at this new restaurant in Rochester are sustainable and locally sourced meats, produce, and the finest plates of seafood.  A few of their signature items that you may want to try out now at the St. Louis Park restaurant are miso glazed seabass, flatbreads, and hummus plates as well as seasonal dishes.

Once it opens, you will enjoy grabbing items to go or a chance to sit down and savor the foods in front of you.
