Our guests tend to dine at restaurants in Jordan for their evening meals. And though some venture anywhere from Excelsior to downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul, the majority dining outside of Jordan do so within 10 miles in the surrounding communities of Shakopee, Chaska, Belle Plaine, New Prague, and Prior Lake. So Kevin and I thought we would visit and review some of those restaurants in the surrounding communities. We begin in Prior Lake, at Perron’s Sul Lago.
This is a fine dining restaurant near a pond between Lower and Upper Prior Lake. The atmosphere is stylish and inviting.
The seating is warm and inviting, available at the bar, and at a variety of tables in cozy sections.
We start our Perron’s experience with an appetizer. Among the choices of Brushetta, Calamari, Prosciutto and Fresh Mozzarella, Baked Polenta, and Mussels, we choose: Stuffed Mushrooms ~ mushrooms stuffed with sweet sausage, fresh herbs, roasted garlic, and smoked provolone. Delicious!
The entrees on the menu include steak, duck, chicken, risottos, pastas and gnocchi. I’m partial to gnocchi, so I chose the Scallops Gnocchi ~ seared sea scallops, smoked bacon, onion, sweet peas and cream. Melt in your mouth deliciousness! I also chose the Sauteed Baby Spinach with Prosciutto as a side vegetable. Loved it!
Kevin’s absolute favorite is salmon, so he chose the special of the day featuring salmon over gnocchi. Perfectly presented and prepared.
We had a fantastic experience at Perron’s Sul Lago. So after you’ve already visited everything Jordan has to offer during your stay at the Nicolin Mansion, venture 12 miles east to experience Italian dining on the lake.
