I’m pretty good at making the arugula, tomato, Burrafato, and fig salad, but Jacque’s was better. The toasted gnocchi was very midwestern style, which is what you hope for in Minneapolis. More

We ate before a concert at Orchestra Hall. We sat for several minutes before I made eye contact with a server, who kindly came over to serve us, even though I suspect we were not in his section. We were seated along the wall with tables empty on both sides and the restaurant was not busy. We ordered a bottle of Pino Noir - which was very good but overpriced compared to other restaurants. We had the Forager's flatbread and BBQ brisket sliders. Taste was great for both, but the BBQ brisket was difficult for my friend to bite into without getting more beef than expected. That said the beef was tender and tasty. The food and wine came promptly, but we had to ask another server to get our check because our server had not surfaced in quite awhile. The decor and arrangement of tables was more like an extension of the hotel lobby than a nice restaurant. More

One of the best meals I’ve ever had, especially for this price. Had a birthday dinner with cocktails, entrees, and dessert, and everything was fantastic. The atmosphere is also totally unique (Art Deco fans rejoice!) and would absolutely return again! More

We went for the Special Waygu burger and wine pairings. Both were fabulous and a great way to try a great glass of wine and incredible hamburger for the price of the wine alone. I will never want a “regular” burger again. The Restaurant is a classic, the service impeccable and the food is always wonderful. More

Discover Minneapolis

Minneapolis and the Twin Cities have much to offer, from local specialties to American favorites to international cuisine. Here, you can find mom-and-pop places offering famously huge blueberry pancakes and the pastry delicacy called a Hi-Top. You can also enjoy a number of eateries featuring award-winning chefs and inventive cuisines from around the world. Family-run Eastern European delis offering house-cured meats sit alongside cutting-edge vegetarian places. It's not a proper visit to the city without sampling another native creation, the cheese-stuffed hamburger known as a Juicy Lucy. The Upper Midwest hospitality and its embrace of deliciously diverse dining experiences put Minneapolis on every foodie's map.
