About Station 220
Cool comes and goes. There was Pam and Bobby Ewing. There was Max and Agent 99. Maddie and David Addison. And now the new king and queen of cool are Padma and Tom Colicchio. Why? Because they’re foodies. They’ve forgotten more about food than most of us will ever know. They’ve eaten things you’ve never heard of. They speak their own language, filled with terms like frisee, amuse-bouche and aioli.
Cool places come and go as well. Who of us doesn’t wish we could disco with Andy Warhol at Studio 54. Drink with Sammy and Dean and Ole Blue Eyes at the Cal-Neva Lodge. Or chow down on a Cobb Salad at the Brown Derby.
One of the cool places in Bloomington has gone. And come. So to speak. The restaurant that was perhaps as famous for its firefighting lineage as it was its food is now reborn into Station 220. And now the food is definitely the shining star of this former fire station.
Station 220 is building on its one-of-a-kind environment and creating its new menu around food provided by our local farmers. The new Executive Chef and his staff are committed to providing an exquisite dining experience using only the freshest and finest ingredients, believing that the community should feed the community.
Evidence of this mission lies in starters including the Bistro Bruschetta and the Onion Fried Green Beans. Salads and soups include the old-time favorites of gumbo and French onion soup. Salads include the Station Cobb. The Grecian and a Black and Bleu.
But all of these just serve as opening acts for the headliners. From the grill you can choose from a Hand-Selected Rib Eye, Herb Crusted Flat-Iron Steak, Moulard Duck or Sous Vide Lamb Shank, just to name a few. Pasta includes melt-in-your-mouth dishes of Lobster Ravioli, Truffled Gnocchi and Backdraft Chicken. Seafood entrees tempt the taste buds with a Spice Rubbed Salmon, Sashimi Togarashi Tuna or the Grilled Halibut.
And Station 220 is bringing back the Sunday brunch. With a twist (or should we say a celery stalk A “Build your own Bloody Mary Bar” compliments the combo breakfast/lunch buffet. There are two seating times – 10 a.m. for the “didn’t party that hard on Saturday night” crowd and 1 p.m. for the “Let’s party like its 1999” crowd. Fabulous food, hair of the dog, all at the low, low price of $12.95.
Station 220 has more than a lofty menu mission. It also has a community involvement mission. Station 220 consistently donates and participates in philanthropic events throughout the area, working with groups including St. Jude’s Big Brothers and Sisters, Tip a VIP and the Marc Center. Join us for Thursday night happy hour at the newly renovated “Loft” upstairs and tip your celebrity bartender to help the Big Brothers and Sisters program.
Feeding the body. Good works for the soul. And a cool atmosphere to top it all off. Maybe this is one kind of cool that will be around for a while. Check it out at www.station220.net.
