Publish date:

Get ready to pig out at the latest restaurant arriving in downtown Minneapolis, which is promising a "bacon-forward" menu.

Bacon Social House has ventured outside of its home state to add a third location to its current restaurants in Denver and Littleton, Colorado.

Opening in the Thresher Square building at 700 S. 3rd St., close to U.S. Bank Stadium, the Bacon Social House opens its doors on Friday, though will be accepting limited reservations through Resy for a soft opening on Wednesday and Thursday.

So what to expect from the menu? Well, bacon-lovers can go hog wild, naturally, with menu items including a $10.25 "signature flight" of 6 of the best-tasting bacons in the country.

Elsewhere there's a bacon cobb salad, a BLTA (BLT + avocado) sandwich, porchetta, pulled pork, bacon deviled eggs, a smokehouse burger with bacon and bacon jam, and a bacon-wrapped meatloaf entree.

It's not 100 percent bacon, with the menu offering dishes including Scottish grilled salmon, blue corn tortilla encrusted walleye, several salads, and steak frites for those looking for a break from bacon.

The restaurant is taking up residence in a 4,200 square foot space next door to the new Canopy by Hilton Hotel.

"Minneapolis is a thriving city and we’re so excited to bring Bacon to the heart of downtown where we hope it will become a destination for both locals and visitors looking for delicious food in a place that’s all about bringing the fun and treating every guest like family,” said owner David Dill in a press release.

"Although we are a Colorado-born company, it’s important to me that our Minneapolis location has its own unique, local feel," Dill added, noting Minnesota-friendly dishes like Walleye, while the drinks menu features local companies including Surly, Lake Monster, Tattersall and Spyhouse Coffee.

The restaurant will open for brunch and dinner, Monday-Thursday from 6:30am-10pm, Friday 6:30am-11pm, Saturday 7am-11pm, and Sunday 7am-10pm.
