Bite of Burnsville 2015 - People's Choice and Chef's Choice

Morgan's Farm to Table wins the People's Choice and Chef's Choice at the 2015 Bite of Burnsville! Morgan’s on Nicollet – Farm to Table has carved out a nice niche among restaurants and bars in Burnsville, MN. Morgan's Farm to Table is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Morgan’s is mostly American cuisine and has a commitment to sustaining the legacy of family farms in Minnesota. To that end, we are proud to represent some of the best artisan producers in the region. All products from these producers are 100% natural with no added colors, flavors or preservatives - guaranteed GMO free with no use of growth hormones or antibiotics. Morgan's Farm to Table is beautifully designed creating a comfortable atmosphere and ambiance. Conveniently centrally located off County Road 42 and Nicollet Ave, right off I-35W and I-35E, Morgan's is easy to find.

What is the Bite of Burnsville? – The Bite of Burnsville is the largest annual fundraising event for the Burnsville Chamber each year. It is a food-tasting event that brings together about 20 of the area’s best rest restaurants. It is open to the public and also includes raffles, a large silent auction, a live auction, and live entertainment.

Who attends the Bite? Anyone is welcome! It’s a mix of Burnsville chamber members, Burnsville community leaders, and the general public.

How are the awards decided? The awards are decided differently per award. The “Chef’s Choice” award is judged by the previous year’s winner. This year, the chefs from Chianti Grill (the 2014 winner) judged each restaurant on their presentation and taste. The “People’s Choice” award is judged by all of the people attending (this year we had around 500 attendees). Each attendee is given one ballot to place in the box of the restaurant for which they feel is their favorite. Generally people decide based on taste.

…”I was very pleased with the Bite of Burnsville attendee’s interest level at the Morgan’s Farm to Table booth. I was so busy dishing samples of our grass fed filet mignon over creamy onion risotto with smoked tomato demi-glace that I barely had time to lift my head and see what else was going on. My ears, however, were wide open – nothing but great feedback and great interaction. Winning the two awards was icing on the cake – or should I say, demi-glace on the fillet!” - Michael Goodman, V.P. of Food and Beverage Operations

"Morgan's hit it out of park at the Burnsville Chamber Bite event.  The new Executive Chef's new 'Farm to table' concept and menu is fresh, delicious and flavorful.  The team at the Bite were enthusiastic and excited.  I loved the filet with risotto.  They won both Chef's Choice and People's Choice, now that's an endorsement."  - Mayor Elizabeth Kautz - Burnsville, MN

"The Bite of Burnsville was simply a wonderful experience; the food, the music, the laughter and the community. I had a wonderful time serving our exquisite grass fed filet mignon over creamy onion risotto with smoked tomato demi-glace, as well as interacting with the community. It was a great opportunity to share not just our food, but also the story about where our food comes from and why the Farm to Table concept is important to us here at Morgan’s Farm to Table. The awards that we received I feel reflect not only the dedication of those employees who were present at the Bite of Burnsville but the entire staff of Morgan’s farm to table who are passionate about our food and our story." - Nathan Metcalf, GM of Morgan's

 "The bite of Burnsville is a great event that brings the members of this beautiful community together to show off all the great delicacies it has to offer.  The Ames Center is the perfect venue with a cozy atmosphere.  When it comes to the food options..I can't say enough good things about Morgan's on Nicollet!!!!  The Risotto was magnificent and the steak was mouth watering.  I already have my spot reserved for next year!!!!" - Jerome Tatum, Fairview Ridges Hospital

“Morgan’s On Nicollet is a first-rate restaurant with delicious, fresh, unique food.  They have an excellent team of people who clearly care about the food they make, the service they deliver, and the atmosphere they create in the restaurant. “ Jina Duchnowski, Burnsville Chamber of Commerce
