Meet Executive Chef Kirk Bratrud

Landmark Restaurant Executive Chef Kirk Bratrud began his cooking career at Mrs. B’s Inn in Lanesboro, MN. His culinary journey that made several important stops in Minnesota and Wisconsin before his arrival in Bayfield.

Mr. Bratrud’s past work experience includes serving as General Manager at Sara’s Table – Chester Creek Cafe in Duluth, Executive Chef at Boathouse Restaurant in Superior, and Executive Chef/Owner at the Bayport Cookery in Minneapolis, where he earned his title as a James Beard Chef.

The Bayport Cookery featured a daily multicourse tasting menu, emphasizing local ingredients. Anyone who knows the history of Old Rittenhouse Inn and Landmark Restaurant will appreciate the synergy.

Chef Batrud brings a level of refinement to his artfully prepared dishes, and makes great use of the incredible local ingredients we are so fortunate to have here on the Bayfield Penninsula.

We invite you to join us for a meal and experience Chef Batrud’s talents for yourself.
