BLUE PLATE RESTAURANT COMPANY'S HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Two servers working together at The Nicollet Island Inn during the 1990s honed their skills at one of the Twin Cities premier restaurant/hotels. After work hours, David Burley and Stephanie Shimp dreamed up the idea for what became the Highland Grill.

With each year becoming busier than the last, David and Stephanie expanded their collection of neighborhood restaurants to become the Blue Plate Restaurant Company, which includes Highland Grill, Groveland Tap, Longfellow Grill, Edina Grill, 3 Squares, The Lowry, The Blue Barn (Minnesota State Fair), Mercury Dining Room and Rail and Shindig Event Center.
