Hell's Kitchen provides some heavenly tastes in the heart of Minneapolis. This funky underground spot is one of the most fun restaurants in Minneapolis. There's a full menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and one of the best brunches in the city. Check out some of the Hell's Kitchen live music performances and some of the local-favorite cuisine. Don't miss the "Minnesota icon" state-fair cheese curds with a light beer batter or maple-glazed bison sausage with pure maple syrup. The restaurant's famed half-pound caramel-pecan roll is also iconic. For dinner, be sure to try the Minnesota-special and cheese-filled "Juicy Lucifer" burger.
