Live Music Restaurant - A stomping ground for those who share our appreciation for a comfortable place to have a drink, healthy, quality food made from scratch and the cast of fine musicians who call MN home.

"I had the fried chicken, with what I think of as "sweet" spices, like mace, combined with hot chile peppers. The spices were not evenly distributed, so some bites had predominantly hot and spicy notes, and others had the sweet spice notes. It came with cornbread, again with the same spice combination. The cornbread was baked in an iron dish, which gave it great flavor and crustiness. However, the plate was too small. The plate had this iron dish on it, with 4 pieces of chicken stacked on top of it. I had a pile of food, taller than the plate was wide. I had to move 2 pieces off the plate, before I could even see the cornbread. 2 burgers came out first, gnocchi at least 5 minutes later, and chicken at least another 10 minutes after that."

There are two Burger Jones...<br />There's the urban burger bar whose sleek dining room, cocktail bar and patio overlooking Lake Calhoun draws discerning burgerholics for lunch, dinner and drinks. This Burger Jones offers early and late Happy Hour, along with ample parking, including dedicated spaces for easy pickup of your takeout orders.<br /><br />Then there's the other Burger Jones...<br />Behind the kitchen door we transform a secret custom grind into burgers you'll have no choice but to attack – for their beauty can drive you insane – and no option but to eat quickly, lest the dopamine rush overload your pleasure receptors. <br /><br />Start slowly, maybe with a simple Burger Jones. As your habit develops, don’t worry: we’ll feed it.<br /><br />Sorry, no patio reservations accepted... Have a cold beer or Hillbilly Hooch and we will seat you outside as soon as we can if you prefer but expect to wait.

"Seven of us met for lunch. The burgers were delicious, and well prepared. However, the server did not ask us how we wanted the bill to be split. He just sort of plopped the bill on the table and zoomed away. I ended up just paying the entire thing myself, rather than struggle with it. A disappointing end to a good lunch."

After three years of operating as the well-known fine dining Restaurant Levain, Café Levain was launched in 2007 as a French bistro with a full menu of comfort food done right.
