Bringing Fiery Chinese to St. Louis Park

Thanks to Emily Weiss of City Pages for a great review of our location in St. Louis Park at The Shops at West End. A great picture tour is also provided.

In keeping with catering to a more upscale, post-work crowd, the new Little Szechuan has a hopping happy hour with good drink deals and well-chosen snacks: crisp chicken wings that elicited that back-of-the-throat, slow-burning sensation, and Szechuan potato fries, a log-cabin-style stack of thick planks of potato, slathered in a hot, sweet, and salty oil. The place has a few beers on tap, more bottled options, a decent wine list ranging from California and Oregon to Italy and Spain, and something you don’t see at too many Chinese restaurants: a full bar. The cocktail menu includes a drink called the BLT. Made with spicy and subtle Bulleit bourbon, bright and sour limoncello, and a splash of tonic, it has a boldness and creativity that show Little Szechuan can compete with its bigger, and for the time being more popular, neighbors.
