The Market at Malcolm Yards food hall's best and booziest

I recently checked out The Market at Malcolm Yards, a new food hall across from the iconic United Crushers grain silos in Minneapolis' Prospect Park.

  • The market has a self-pour beer tap wall, a full bar and nine vendors serving everything from empanadas to charcuterie.

After ordering from more than half of the spots, here's what I found:

The booziest: The Animal Style cocktail from Boxcar Bar. It has gin, vodka, whiskey and pink lemonade, and pairs with fellow vendor Bebe Zito’s Animal Frosting ice cream. Proceed with caution — you can barely taste the alcohol.

The intriguing: Sake Ceviche from Bagu Sushi. Sliced salmon is doused in a house sauce with shallots, fish roe and edamame. Aesthetically beautiful, but I'm not into fish eggs.

The best: A charcuterie board from Sunday at the Market. The goat cheese mousse with blueberries wins, hands down.
