Winter Dining Info
Dining with Chef Scott Bergstrom
A cold winter’s night calls for a long, lingering meal to while away the evening hours. Those of you who missed him last year when he was on his New Zealand bike trip will be happy to learn that Chef Scott Bergstrom has returned for another winter season of fine dining at Bearskin.
Scott has an extensive history with some of the best known fine dining establishments in the Twin Cities, including as executive chef at the beautiful 510 Groveland. He was also the private chef for Curt Carlson, the founder of the Radisson Hotel empire. Scott and his wife now own a small resort along Lake Superior, Thomsonite Beach, that doesn’t offer dining. So each winter Scott shares his amazing culinary skills with Bearskin guests for a short run of winter weekends. It’s a labor of love — he takes such great care with the food he prepares that we always say it’s more like watching artistry back in the kitchen than cooking.
If your dates hit on one of the nights when Scott is here as the guest chef, we strongly encourage you to make a reservation early. Scott’s dining nights are very popular with our local residents and with guests from other resorts who have discovered him and keep coming back. Give us a call to reserve soon! We promise it will be one of the best meals you’ve ever enjoyed.

Scott likes to change up his menu regularly. It keeps this fun guest chef gig more interesting for him.
