After a state-mandated takeout/delivery-only period, as of TODAY, Monday, January 11, our Lyndale Avenue flagship location in Minneapolis will be open again for indoor dining. Beginning this Friday, January 15, our Grand Avenue, St. Paul restaurant will reopen after a COVID hiatus, offering both indoor dining and takeout/delivery.

We can't wait to welcome you back! Of course, we'll continue to offer take-out, curbside pickup, and delivery, and our Lyndale location offers a full selection of house-made meals and provisions to take home from our French Meadow Kitchen To Go.

Be assured that we continue to exercise strict COVID-19 safety protocols, and remember that, in the interest of the health and safety of our customers and employees, we require everyone to wear face masks and abide by our social-distancing rules.


Minneapolis/Lyndale: 8 am - 8 pm, seven days


St. Paul/Grand Ave (beginning Friday 1/15): 8 am - 8 pm, seven days

To our valued customers and friends, We hope you are all safe, and doing as well as possible during these trying times in our world. We are grateful and appreciate your encouraging notes, posts, and ongoing support in ordering our organic, made-from-scratch meals for pickup and delivery during the emergency state restrictions on dine-in service.

Due to the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases in the community, and some staff at our St. Paul/Grand Avenue location testing positive, and our beloved manager there diagnosed with pneumonia related to COVID, we’ve decided to close our Grand Avenue location until December 19th, 2020, the date our Governor Tim Walz has designated for resumption of on-premises restaurant dining.

We are resolved to survive, and make it through the winter, keeping financial losses at a minimum. Our survival is critical not only for our many employees, but for the many local and independent farmers, producers, and suppliers who depend on our orders to stay afloat during the pandemic. Our great team envisions embracing spring with the hope of a full 100% seating inside our cafes, and on our patios at both locations. We have faith that our community support will guide us forward. With Gratitude, Lynn Gordon

In the interest of public safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, Minnesota has once again restricted restaurant service to take-out and delivery for four weeks beginning Saturday, November 21, 2020. French Meadow's Minneapolis location ONLY will REMAIN OPEN FOR TAKE-OUT, DELIVERY, & CURBSIDE PICKUP during this period, and will continue to offer wine and beer to take out with food orders; our St. Paul location will be temporarily closed, reopening December 19.

Note that we continue to adhere to strict safety and sanitation protocols on our premises for the safety of our employees and customers: Please remember that you must wear a mask and abide by social distancing -- which includes limits on number of customers allowed indoors -- when coming by for your takeout orders. We ask that you be patient and respect these safety regulations! We look forward to welcoming you back for on-premises dining on December 19th (fingers crossed)! In the meantime, stay safe, wear your mask, and continue to enjoy our takeout and delivery from Lyndale Avenue. CLICK HERE TO ORDER NOW
