Micro Brews + Micro Bites

Posted on Apr 01, 2017 by The Forks Market

“Would you like a micro glass of wine or micro coffee with your micro entrée? Alright, I’ll be back with that in a micro-second!” is just a snippet of what you may hear your average-sized server offer at The Forks’ new micro restaurant.

One thing we’re always aiming to do here at The Forks is stay on-point with trends, and if we look to what’s cool on the West Coast, it’s micro restaurants absolutely exploding the food scene – serving these amazingly tiny dishes – and we want to be on the leading edge of bringing what’s trendy to Winnipeg.

The concept is exactly as it sounds: the entire fine-dining experience scaled down to miniature size, with exquisitely crafted and executed dishes that not only satisfy on the flavour front, but impress with detailed plating and presentation

This is a food trend that puts culinary talent to the test. It’s absolutely astounding to see the technique these chefs employ to be able to execute these micro dishes. It’s a really neat concept – you get the experience of feeling truly larger than life.

In the heart of Winnipeg, a city known for its foodie vibe and tremendous chef talent, The Forks expects this new restaurant will surely be a treat for locals, and will also draw foodies from far and wide.

We haven't officially signed on a restauranteur, and we're also currently sourcing a local ceramic artist to commission the custom serving pieces. Looking forward to the restaurant opening in 2018!

April Fools!
