Rosedale Center has placed itself firmly on the map as a destination mall thanks to the buzz about its new food hall, which opened first the first time on Monday.
Located in a former two-story Borders, Revolution Hall is shaking up the mall food court concept, housing 11 food vendors who concoct their creations in one shared kitchen.
And rather than being populated by national chains like most other mall food courts, Revolution Hall is home to a variety of lesser-known eateries cooking up Instagram-worthy dishes in a casual setting.
The most headline-grabbing of those is PieCaken Bakeshop, which the Twin Cities Eater reports is the first brick-and-mortar location of celebrity chef Zac Young, who previously only offered his cakes online or for pick-up in New York.
If you're not familiar with his "PieCaken" concept, it's basically the dessert version of a "Turducken" roast: It's cake with layers of pecan pie, pumpkin pie, spiced pound cake and apple pie.
Elsewhere in Revolution Hall, there are burgers from Saltbrick, Neapolitan-style pizza from Caputo Pizzeria, noodles from Canal Street Noodle Co., sandwiches from Handwich Shop, tacos from Angry Taco, sushi and sake at Oceantail, and chicken and waffles from Honeycomb, among others.
If you're looking for a post-shopping break, meanwhile, you can check out the whiskey and cocktail lounge, Barrel Bar.
CityPages says Revolution Hall has food "worth driving to the suburbs for," with the waffle sandwiches from Honeycomb among its standout dishes.
