The Harriet Brasserie

A "New-American" restaurant in beautiful Linden Hills featuring local, organic, and sustainable ingredients. Brazilian owner and chef Fernando Silva is a graduate of the University of Minnesota where he studied agricultural chemistry to further develop his expertise in the science of food and sustainability.

When Harriet opened in 2012, Silva’s agricultural mentality was foundational for the menu which was created by the mantra, “A dish should fall into place naturally.” Carried by this philosophy, the menu feels like an invitational, featuring several Brazilian-inspired dishes such as ropa velha and baurú. Wife and co-owner Kalinka Mazurkevicz bakes the most delicate and moist coconut tres leches and brigadeiro cakes of the Twin Cities.

The Harriet Brasserie is a very neighborly and personable restaurant that gives people an accessible casual, farm to table and fine dining experience all in one charming place.
