Kim Bartmann


Biltwell Restaurants




Kim Bartmann is one of the more prolific and visible of Twin Cities restaurant royalty. Since 1991 she has opened and operated a diverse array of restaurants (Tiny Diner, Barbette, Red Stag) in Minneapolis, the common denominator being her willingness to pioneer in changing neighborhoods and a focus on building and managing with an eye toward environmental sustainability and community stewardship. Bartmann is willing to take a chance when nobody else is, a notable feature in the me-too restaurant game.
