My other small plate was a Walleye and Goat Sausage Stew with Kale, Baby Turnips, and Cream. To me, it sounded like kind of an odd combination (the walleye and goat sausage) but it really worked. A lot of fresh fish that is cooked well has a relatively neutral flavor as was the case here so it didn't provide a lot of flavor as such but there was enough that it provided a significant textural element. The goat sausage was skinless and was well spiced in addition to the gaminess that comes with goat. The kale was wilted so while it didn't have the crispness that freshly picked kale, it did provide a nice vegetable flavor that tied well with the root vegetable flavor of the very tender baby turnips. The cream added to everything and provided a nice depth of flavor for the finish.
For my dessert, I went a little decadent and got a Cinnamon Pound Cake with Butterscotch, Roasted Apples, and Butter Pecan Ice Cream. It was sweet, a little spicy, hearty, and very definitely a fall dessert that was a good finish to what was otherwise a rather light dinner. I could have gone light for dessert as well, but the combination of flavors looked too good to pass up and I really like butterscotch.
There is a very good reason that Found is a hit, even in a city with several other good restaurants. The space is very friendly and homey and the food is very good. While a good pedigree does not guarantee a good restaurant, in Amy Morton and Nicole Pederson's case they do well by their pedigree and have created a very good restaurant.
