Michelle and Myron Salz
September 2007, with a love of food and a dream of a fantastic new Rochester MN restaurant, the plan for the all new Twigs began. With our staff’s constant support and input, Twigs Tavern and Grille was sure to be a highlight in Rochester dining. The question was, what could we bring to the table to create a unique dining experience for Rochester? It was a trip to Spain with their children, Abby and Sean, when the menu direction became ultimately clear.



New American Fare at Twigs
With dishes inspired from many cultures as well as traditional American food with a flare, Twigs offers an array of unique entrees and small plates with many ethnic influences to tickle the taste buds, satisfy, and delightfully surprise our guests beyond any of their expectations. We serve the most fresh and delicious items in many portion sizes so our guests can try numerous dishes with interesting flavors in a single dining experience. Our entire menu is a casual blend of amazing tasting food and is designed for easy sampling and sharing. We encourage guests to personalize their dining experience and customize it as they see fit.

Hot Rock Grilling
It was a tiny little restaurant in Barcelona that our concierge said we had to try. Steak on a Rock was the restaurant's specialty and it was incredible! We knew we had to bring it to Twigs. When we arrived home, we could hardly contain ourselves as we explained it to my parents, Jim and Lorraine McPeak. They supported us completely and believed we had something Rochester would love.

Hot Rock grilling is fun, different, and very social. Like fondue without the oil. We serve sliced Babcock pork, steak, and seafood and you cook it at your tabletop to your liking on a 650 degree granite rock. We offer numerous gourmet dipping sauces for your meat and seafood. You will love it!
