Dappled sunlight filters through olive green leaves and washes across your table. A cool breeze caresses you with the scent of geraniums. You’re surrounded by ancient brick, wrought iron, clinging ivy and soft lights. Suddenly, you feel your muscles melt and your spirits lift. You must be on the patio at W.A. Frost.

The Dacotah Building, built in the late 1800’s,was once the pharmacy of Mr. William A. Frost. It is now on the Register of Historic Buildings and houses the W.A. Frost bar and restaurant. Voted one of the most romantic restaurants in the Twin Cities, W.A. Frost was opened by John and Peggy Rupp in 1975. They still own it today and continue to expand and refine their award-winning restaurant.

Inside the building, exposed brick, hardwood floors, and original 19th and 20th century oil paintings create a warm ambiance of old-world grace. Three fireplaces crackle in the winter months and oriental rugs offer a soft contrast to the original tin ceilings.

Lenny Russo, the executive chef, recreates the menu four times a year to surprise and delight his customers. He insists on using locally-grown, organic vegetables whenever possible. Lenny has been at W.A. Frost for three years and previously worked at Loring Café and Aveda Spa.

The 3,000 bottle wine cellar has won many awards and is considered one of the best and most extensive in the Midwest. If you are there on a weekend evening, ask Tom Johnson, the bartender, for a recommendation. He has been with W.A. Frost for fifteen years and has an intimate knowledge of the wine cellar.

W.A. Frost offers three private rooms that can be rented for parties of up to 50 guests. It is located at 374 Selby Avenue in St. Paul and their phone number is 651-224-5715. More information is available at their website
