Dine and Dive Into Midwestern Heritage

An idea ﬁrst had ﬁve years ago will come to full bloom this month in Fargo, North Dakota. The owners of Brew Restaurants, Britt and Alex Belquist and Shelby and Chad Terstriep, have partnered again to create 701 Eateries, a unique restaurant built on Midwestern heritage. Family friends, Eric and Sarah Myhre, are also co-owners of this new dining concept coming to town. The Belquists and Terstrieps, a team of brother and sister plus their spouses, also own Brew Ales and Eats of Perham, Minnesota, Brew Hall of Wahpeton, North Dakota, and Brew Bird of Fargo, North Dakota.
Located on the corner of University Drive and Seventh Ave. N., 701 Eateries is “right on the fringe of downtown,” as owner Shelby Terstriep put it. This soon-to-be local favorite is situated just between North Dakota State University and the downtown area, as well as near Fargo Brewing Company, Brew Bird, Wild Terra and Drekker Brewing Company -- other Fargo favorites.

Opening their doors two years ago, in West Fargo, Tru Blu quickly made its mark with sleek, American steakhouse cuisine and a classically designed interior. A stone arched ceiling creates old-world ambiance and their casually-elevated dining takes patrons back to a time when a fine steak was served in fine style. This month, dinner's on us as we take you inside to meet the chefs, gather a few secrets of the steakhouse trade, and steal their sinfully delicious, caramelized root mash potato recipe.
