Food & Drink

Were you hot or cold? Did you have coveted snacks to share, or did you spend time at the table longingly looking at other kids’ goodies? Did you sport the latest lunch box, or were you a brown bagger? Sit alone or with your crew?

Baja Haus has made quite an impression on Wayzata—and the social media world—since its opening last spring.

The first time Deephaven resident Jillian McGary realized she had a successful business idea, she was at the park with her two young children.

Restaurant ninetwentyfive opened at the end of June at the Hotel Landing in Wayzata. The menu features New American cuisine, combining traditional American flavors and cooking techniques with fresh produce, meats and cheeses.

Lily Smith, co-founder of Crisp and Green, grew up and went to high school in Wayzata. The fast-casual restaurant opened here last November. (A second location opened in Minneapolis in March.)
