Looking to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or something special? Look no further. Bar La Grassa's beautiful setting, paired with homemade fresh pasta and multiple bruschetta options are a game changer.
I usually shy away from restaurants that are part of hotels, but not here. The Nicollet Island Inn is a hidden gem in one of the most beautiful corners of Minneapolis. I love stopping by for Sunday Brunch, where they offer 3-and 5-course tasting menus that have never disappointed me.
A place I feel comfortable recommending to just about anyone. Serving sizes are perfect, service is consistently good, and their menu offers great variety. They have an onsite brewery, but also offer local beers. My go-to: the $1,000 burger and a glass of their Kölsch-Style Ale.
The sister restaurant of Red Cow is charming it its own way. Great cocktails and fantastic burrata. If not everyone in your group can agree on pizza, head here - they can order one of the many pasta and entree options, and you can order the Spicy Salami pie.
I encourage you to find a better bagel in Minnesota... their classic and artisan sandwiches are fabulous, their pop art bagel is my inner-child's dream, and when I just want something simple, their Everything Bagel with Plain Cream Cheese really hits the spot.
