One thing about Fargo, North Dakota—it never ceases to surprise. Did you know, for example, that one of the best restaurants in town is housed in a midcentury-modern furniture store? That’d be BernBaum’s, an ace Jewish delicatessen tucked inside The Madhaus. The combo works surprisingly well. You can eyeball a Danish Modern dining room set or orange pleather lounger while waiting for your potato and chick pea knish, everything bagel with lox, or matzoh ball soup to drop. Might we also recommend the house-baked chocolate rugelach? It beats the tuchus off the sawdust pastries we’re used to eating in New York.
