We visited a new restaurant last week along with other members of the Residents of the Exchange Association. Miss Browns hosted a special evening to introduce people who live in our neighborhood to their unique menu.
We were entertained throughout the evening by trio from a group called Blue Noise who bill themselves as the hottest new blues band in Winnipeg. We started out with a fabulous array of appetizers- smoked salmon mini bagels, fried pickerel on toast with avocado, brisket sliders and smoked chicken wings.
Jenny Tyrell and her husband Steve are the owners of Miss Browns. Jenny and Steve were doing catering at his mother’s boutique vineyard in Sydney Australia when Jenny who is originally from Winnipeg got the bright idea they should move back here and open a sandwich shop featuring meats they smoked on site. They’ve named their restaurant for their daughter who they playfully nicknamed Miss Brown when she was a baby. This was our main course- BBQ pulled-pork, smoked brisket, baby back ribs and a selection of side condiments and sauces. The meat at Miss Browns comes from All Natural Meats in Carmen, Manitoba and other food items are also locally sourced. We had a nice visit with a couple who live just a couple blocks away from us that Dave had connected with previously at his part-time job. There are always new eating spots offering unique cuisine opening their doors in the Exchange District. It’s one of the things that makes living here so interesting.
