Our food was excellent, and our server was outstanding. We had a great experience here and would definitely come back. It's not a very intimate space and feels busy, which is fine if you're not looking for a quiet dinner. This is a great place to meet your friends for dinner. The bar downstairs has a wonderful feel to it and is a fun place for a before or after dinner drink. More

French | Whittier, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

The food was excellent - as was the wine. Since it was Monday we were able to order the larger tasting menu to split. It included many of the appetizers on the menu, every one creative and delicious - oysters on the half shell with 2 sauces, shrimp, raw scallop creation, sweet corn madeleines with wonderful whipped butter, smash cheeseburger, onion rings, spinach salad and a couple more. Yum! All were delicious. Service was pleasant and timely and the servers explained each dish as it came. The wine list was very good and competitively priced and the complimentary vermouth was a nice way to start. Desserts were small - just the right size to top off an excellent meal. Our table was very close to a table of four men, who were pretty loud and that took away from the ambiance. More

Hyderbad Indian GrillHyderbad Indian Grill
$$$$
Indian | Bloomington, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

The Hyderabad is all about slow-cooking, known as dum in India, much of which is done in the tandoor.. This brings out amazing flavours and textures, which when combined with the rich, perfumed flavours from the spices create one of the best cuisines in the world and it is the home of korma and biryani. Everything is cooked over charcoal not just the kebabs, but all Hyderabadi dishes. The food isn't as showy as cuisines found in other parts of India the biryani, for example, looks quite plain, but the texture and taste is just incredible.

This slow cooking helps to meld flavours together to create something totally unique, but it's the rich, indulgent spices that really set Hyderabadi cuisine apart. Hyderabadi cuisine is very rich, with lots of nuts, cream and ghee, but in the olden days that was fine because people did a lot of physical work, Now it should be regarded as a treat; even though it might look simple, the second you taste it you will realise just how special it is.More

Discover The Twin Cities

Yes—a frigid Minneapolis winter evokes stews and soups and hearty, gut-warming fare, but the food scene in this formerly industrial city has gained steam in recent years, with a burgeoning community of excellent chefs, craft coffee and beer, and Nordic style to accompany the culinary traditions of the region’s immigrant community. You’ll find lefse—a traditional Norwegian flatbread made with flour, potatoes, milk, and cream, akin to a latke of a sort—creatively topped and, while meat is central (this is the midwest, after all), river fish and ingredients foraged from surrounding wooded areas lend diversity to the new Minneapolis menus. A number of new but now iconic restaurants have set the tone for how the twin cities’ keep up with the trends, though the two are more fraternal than identical these days, St. Paul taking a slightly more classic, mom and pop shop vibe.
