Good food doesn’t have to be extravagant, good service doesn’t have to be stuffy, good wine doesn’t have to be expensive. At joan’s in the Park Restaurant and Wine Bar, we are changing the face of fine dining.

Chef/owner Susan Dunlop and maître d’/owner Joan Schmitt — whose combined experience includes such Twin Cities’ favorites as Morton’s the Steakhouse, The Capital Grille, and Triä — aim to bring you warm, unpretentious hospitality coupled with their distinctive, yet classic, fare.

The Food

Subtle pairings, fresh flavors: our dishes get right to the heart of good food. We use the finest ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible, to create our American classics—like our 14oz NY Strip—as well our more unique offerings—such as our Baby Beet Blue Cheese Salad. At joan’s in the Park, we believe that every dining experience should be memorable: a day, a week, a month afterwards, we want you to recall that delicious dish you had at joan’s.

The Family

With Susan and Joan’s four adult children numbering among the small staff, we truly are a family affair. Don’t be fooled — as much as parents love their kids, these moms mean business — their children have experience providing expert hospitality in restaurants throughout the Cities. While you dine with us, we hope the warmth of our staff will make you feel like family too.

The Neighborhood

We source locally for a reason; we want to support our community. From the neighborhood, for the neighborhood: we love seeing the same faces every day, knowing your favorite beer and the spot where you like to sit. Whether you are looking for a quiet dinner for two or meeting friends for a drink at the bar, joan’s in the Park is proud to be your home away from home.
