ABOUT

OUR RESTAURANT

RUSTICA Eatery & Tavern

Rustica is located in downtown Moorhead, MN. We boast a cozy neighborhood atmosphere in the historic 1898 Kassenborg Block building, just east of the Main Avenue bridge.

The Eatery features a rustic ambiance with exposed brick creating a warm, comfortable dining experience. Executive Chef Eric Watson is dedicated to offering high quality, seasonally focused products and has created the diverse menu based on traditional American fare with European influences.

The Tavern’s wood burning pizza oven and copper beer taps spawn a more casual bar atmosphere. The innovative pizza menu is fun and the pizzas are exceptional.

Parking is available on the street, as well as in the parking ramp southwest of the building.

OUR TEAM

Eric Watson | Executive Chef

Eric’s passion for all things culinary originated in a quaint Colorado town where he grew up. Small game hunting and trout fishing helped guide him to a style of cooking based on whole, fresh ingredients. Eric believes food should be prepared with quality ingredients and classic technique combined with a simplistic approach.

Eric began his restaurant career as a dishwasher and bus boy. His first culinary position was at the Sopris Restaurant in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, working under a Swiss born chef. He worked passionately to master the basics of knife skills and “Garde Manger” also paying close attention to every move the senior chefs made throughout their shift.

Chef Eric pursued formal culinary training immediately following high school graduation. During his time as a culinary apprentice, he traveled throughout the United Stated with a culinary team, taking part in multiple cooking competitions. Eric has cooked in numerous fine dining establishments in Colorado, Arizona, Hawaii and Rhode Island. He never would have imagined ending up in Fargo/Moorhead, but if asked now, he can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Please follow Eric on Facebook to keep up-to-date on news, cooking tips, recipes, and culinary excursions!

Sara Watson | Business Manager

Sara is a Red River Valley native; she grew up on a farm near Glyndon, MN. Being raised as a farm kid gave her a lifelong love of learning about food, and a passion for local foods and supporting our local growers.

After high school, Sara attended the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis where she obtained a bachelor degree in Art History. Throughout this time, she worked in restaurants in Minneapolis where she developed a love for cooking and entertaining. This led her to pursue training in the culinary arts in Colorado.

Sara graduated from a three year culinary apprenticeship of Keystone Resort in Summit County, Colorado. She is a certified culinarian through the American Culinary Federation and possesses an Associate’s degree in Applied Science in Culinary Arts.

Sara and Eric met in Colorado but decided to open their business in the Red River Valley. As the business has grown, so has their family. Four kids and their activities keep Sara running around more than working in the kitchen. Her role in the business has changed throughout the years from cook to Business Manager. She handles the bookkeeping, publicity and marketing for the company. An avid gardener, Sara also enjoys educating her own kids about whole foods, where their food comes from, and nutrition. Sara volunteers in the schools with the EAT program through the Barry Foundation which focuses on these matters as well.

Jake Wagar | Restaurant Manager

A Fargo local, Jake graduated in 2011 from Fargo South High. His passion for working with small businesses started at a young age of 15, while working for a bowling alley in West Fargo, Stars & Strikes. Six years later he acquired his first bartending position at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Fargo where he explored his love of crafting the perfect drink suited for his guests.

It wasn’t until Jake visited Rustica where he realized his keen interest in quality fine dining. His bartending skills and strong team standards were able to fully shine when he joined the Rustica team in 2015. Since then, Jake has shown exceptional talent and drive toward crafting the perfect overall experience for his guests, which has lead him to managing Rustica Eatery & Tavern.

While creating a fun atmosphere for all, Jake aims to offer seamless customer service.
