The Best Wings in Minneapolis

Minneapolis stands out as one of the friendliest and most beautiful cities, full of Midwestern charm. As the most populous city in Minnesota, it offers much to see and do, from classic architecture and quaint neighborhoods to outdoor beauty and a vibrant nightlife. The city has a historic feel with a super hip, cosmopolitan energy. Nature-lovers should check out the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, Como Park Zoo or enjoy the 15 lakes within the city limits. Described as “the Silicon Valley of food”, Minneapolis has seen a rise in "New Nordic Cuisine" characterized by farm-fresh ingredients and whole animal butchery. Foodies will love the fusion foods adding international twists to classic American fare, especially when it comes to wings. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out?
