Last night was the second in the 2009 Sample Circuit series, held at Seven in downtown Minneapolis.
Looking back, and editing through the photos, the thing that stands out to me about Seven is how well their decor complements the food. The palette is simultaneously subdued and vibrant – the browns and reds of the seating, the soft blue lighting on the columns and walls, the back lit yellow table tops – which makes for some really nice photo backgrounds. The sushi in particular looked great in that setting, which makes sense because the event took place upstairs, not in the steakhouse space downstairs.
You can check out the entire set from the evening here, but I thought I’d put a few of my favorites here as well.
