Hello out there!!!

I thought it would be great for those of you who stumble across this blog to give me some suggestions of your favorite restaurants around the Cities.

Feel free to leave a comment below (can be anonymous) and let me know which restaurants (and type of cuisine) you love that I must try!!!  I am open to hearing about specific dishes as well.

I love trying anything new or traveling to different areas in the Cities, so don’t be shy…..

Lets get a good list going!

Please pass this link on to your friends and have them bombard me with suggestions also!

  206 Responses to “Restaurant Recommendations, please!”

  1. Why don’t restaurants use place mats? They come in all different colors. I live in Hugo, MN but my son owns and operates a restaurant in Morristown, NJ, He uses place mats and so do most! Why? It looks good! A burgundy colored place mat on a brown or black table top looks great. They absorb moisture from the drink glasses. They absorb any spills or splashes for easy clean up. The silverware isn’t sitting on a table that’s been wiped and sprayed with God knows what!! They’re also great sales tools. Specials: Entrees, drinks & wine promos. Customers love place mats, The servers love place mats. Why don’t MN restaurant owners love place mats? Makes no sense!!!!

  2. Quangs has the best Vietnamese in the state in case you dont pickup from them yet. Let me know if and when you do please.

  3. The Coop in SSP is a must try! Their fried chicken is fantastic!

  4. You should try out Day Block Brewing in Downtown Minneapolis. It’s a brew pub so they brew their own beer plus they have lunch and dinner daily and brunch on Sundays. Their pizzas are unique and delicious, unlike any other pizzas you’ve tried before!

  5. Mongolian BBQ, Buffet City – Stillwater, MN: http://www.mongolianbbqstillwater.com/

    Lunch – 11:00 am- 3:30pm
    Adult $9.19 Kid $5.69 (3-10 yrs. Old)

    Dinner – 3:30-9:00 P.M
    Adult $13.29 Kid 6.79

    The make your own stir fry is amazing. I don’t eat seafood but they also have sushi, crab legs and good selection of that.

  6. Aristos in Stillwater MN. Lovely atmosphere…authentic Greek, Mediterranean made fresh. Sagaki (breaded cheese flamed tableside with rum) is great as it is served with warm pita wedges.Comprehensive menu includes lamb, beef, seafood and chicken. Along with pastas, wines and regional desserts.

    stuffed grape leaves and gyros are so delectible and if you are fortunate enough to have the owner attend your table you are treated to a relaxing dining experience where you wish you could stay all night sipping after dinner coffee or wine! This is Stillwaters best kept secret. Reasonable prices and divine food!! Opa!!!! Their website has full menu available for viewing.

  7. Craw Daddy’s Yummy Kitchen Grand Opening this Weekend May 30-June 1, 2014! 11am-8pm

    949 Payne Avenue, Saint Paul, MN 55130 (763)360-2964

    Get the taste of Cajun Cuisine! Specials include:

    Buy 2 libs of crawfish, get 1 lb free
    Buy 1 crawfish banh mi, get one half off

  8. I highly suggest The Berry sweet kitchen.
    T
    he Mexican omelet with baked-fresh-daily toast. It is without a doubt the BEST omelet and BEST toast/bread I have had in years. I like to try lots of different local restaurants, eateries and pubs, and this first experience has me instantly hooked. A wonderful lady (owner?) informed me that all of their breads are baked fresh daily, they patty their own 1/2 pound burgers (including their version of the Juicy Lucy), and their pastries/desserts on the weekends look sinfully-good.

  9. Hello Kristi
    Try Merlins Rest Pub on E Lake St, their food is tucked nicely between gastro and pub food, they have a great selection of dishes from the british isles like bangers and mash, cottage pie, fish and chips, highland steak pie and ploughmans lunch these are just a few of the delicious dishes available all made in house, plus they 155+ single malt scotch whisky and 57 irish whiskey’s to choose from.
    regards lee

  10. Great lunches, home made soups. We have a pantry section with locally produced preserves, baked goods, raw honey, soup & bread mixes with a nice gluten-free section

  11. Just had an excellent meal at Rinata last weekend. Scallops were *perfect*!

  12. Obbs Bar off of Burns ave in St Paul

    All his food is great… all their soup is home made,,ribs excellent..not just a burger bar. thousands(maybe a million) spent in remodel in the last year

    A must!

  13. The American Legion in Hastings MN has All You Can Eat Snow Crab Legs every Saturday Night for $24.94 It includes Soup or Salad, Unlimited breadsticks, and 2 sides. I ate there tonight and it was AMAZING. You have to try it!

  14. Just vist our timbertrail for unlimited fun package with all awesome activities like fishing,boatrental,swimming,golf,casino,ely shopping,massage,floatplan rides, and much more with special lodging facilities at affordable rates.

  15. Check out wokintheparkrestaurant.com

  16. Kristi,
    Please check out The Lodge in Robbinsdale, they have the best broasted chicken anywhere, since my last trip to the Grandy Tap 30 years ago. Also, they have a very tasty chicken quesidilla. Keep checking Groupon because they are on there quite abit, either under regular deals or their daily deals. Can’t wait to hear what you think.
    Tom

  17. This is a bit of a drive… Okay,, who am I kidding it could be an overnight trip…. but the BBQ at Louie’s Bucket of Bones in Crosby-Ironton is fabu!

  18. Hi Kristi

    I don’t have a restaurant to suggest at this time. However, I would like to inform of you a mobile app recently developed here in Minneapolis that allows consumers to raise their voice when the food doesn’t look like the advertised image. Next time you find yourself being duped by misleading restaurant menus, think about using this app and let everyone know to avoid that place. http://www.igotduped.net

  19. Looking for ideas in the Cities area. Need a place that has a room for a private party of 15 to 20 a bit upscale and an eclectic menu that can handle carnivores and vegetarians with equal ease. Thanks

    • Hi there,

      I have a restaurant in Loretto (west suburbs), Bistro 11, which has the perfect menu and space you are seeking. We have a wine room that seats up to 34 and a from scratch eclectic menu. Please visit our website http://www.bistro-11.com or Bistro 11 on facebook. Cheers,Kristin Rotter

  20. Hi. I have been checking out your website for some time now. It’s so great to have a site that you can go to to where someone has actually gone to the restaurants and I really enjoy the pictures of the meals. I just saw a small place that was on the ppress restaurant blog about a place called “LuLu’s” on Selby and Fry. I trust your judgement on food so if you could try it out, that would be great. I can’t get out that much now so when I do I’d like to know the food/portions/price is worth it. Thanks a bunch.

  21. 3 Squares in Maple Grove – just had it for lunch today. All 6 of us were way beyond impressed with the food. The fish tacos were big and had a great amount of fish in them!

  22. Hunan Garden in downtown St Paul is an excellent choice.

  23. Via Brasil Steakhouse in Las Vegas is one Best of Las Vegas restaurant

  24. Bin Wine Bar!!! This little treasure is in Lowertown, St. paul. Corner of 6th & Sibley. They used to only have small plates and cheeses, but now they have a brand new kitchen and are pumping out fantastic food! I’ve had just about everything on the menu and have loved just about every bite!! Order the daily chef’s burger and you won’t be dissappointed!

  25. Don julios mexican resteraunt in forest lake is a great little resteraunt.Great margaritas and delicous food.

  26. Go a little north of Maple Grove and hit River Inn in Hanover. Great steaks and also gluten free pizza….

  27. If you want to try a real “hidden gem”, you should try Danny’s Bar & Grill at StoneRidge Golf Club! It has a brand new remodel that is beautiful and modern. The patio has a view that is second to none overlooking the golf course. The comfortable seating and fireplace are great too. As far as the food goes, it is fantastic! Chef Ron Bohnert is an award winning chef that really puts out a nice menu. I promise that once you stop in you will be a fan.

  28. Flameburger in COlumbia Heights is a good greasy spoon

  29. Try the Ideal Diner (14th Ave NE and Central, Minneapolis) for a good breakfast or burger.

    Also Shortstop’s Bar and Grill in Coon Rapids has an excellent burger

  30. My new favorite place is The Public House in the North Loop/Warehouse District in Minneapolis. They snagged a chef from Victory 44 (Chef Paul – who came out to talk to us in between courses and made incredible suggestions for dessert!) We’ve been there many times but my favorite dish is the Shroomin’ Philly (a meatless philly) and my boyfriend’s is the French Dip (which I adore as well). They also have an amazing carrot cake – and when I say amazing…I mean…wow. It’s basically a personal carrot cake, beautifully decorated, and even better on the tongue. I don’t even like carrot cake (something about a vegetable trying to be passed off as dessert) but this was amazing. Get your butt down there and try their food – and don’t forget a pint or two – they have an awesome list of local brews on tap and even more in the bottle — you won’t regret it!

  31. Best ribeye: 1. Ruth’s Chris 2. Erte Been to Porterhouse..doesn’t compare!! Lakeside was good.

  32. Buona sera in Champlin. The best Italian around!

  33. Try Wok in the Park in St. Louis Park. Great people and great food. Some of the best Asian food around.

  34. Phil’s club Tara in Stillwater, pier 500 in Hudson

  35. Mama Valenti’s in Andover. One of the best pizza sauces around!

  36. Need information about The Hanger Room, in Mahtomedi, Mn. Good bad expensive reasonable? Any of the above

  39. the neighborhood cafe for breakfast on selby and snelling in saint paul

  40. Get on over to Cheeky Monkey on Selby Ave in Saint Paul. Counter service during the day and table service at night/weekends. AWESOME!

  41. Jameson’s Irish Pub in White Bear Lake just opened in the old Decoys location. They have an extensive selection of tap beers and lots of great Irish whiskey (as my husband would say) . You also must must must try their prime rib sandwich. It is to die for!

  42. Thank you for the suggestion! I tried Roma Market shortly after your comment and loved it. We tried the Porkchetta sandwich and a few other goodies

  43. The best fish taco I ever had – and eat every day comes from Seafood Market & Deli Minneapolis 628 Central Ave Minneapolis MN The taco’s are really big, filled with grilled fish seasoned perfectly with perfectly seasoned yellow rice and a cabbage tarter complete with a slice of lime!

  44. Little Venetian in Little Canada, MN 55113 I have and many people i know have eaten their. Their food and service is incredible! Mama Vitale’s cooking at it’s best carrying on the tradition of the family. They also have a very experienced catering service that just did a friend of mine and his daughters wedding. Everyone loved the entree’s at the reception. Highly recommend eating here!

    Cheers!

  48. You have got to try Fin Sushi in Lakeville. Chef Wei from Fuji-Ya just opened last month and the food is out of this world! He’ll even make custom rolls, just ask!

  49. You should try Ursula’s in White Bear Lake. It is wonderful and the menu changes monthly.

  50. I grew up on Sammy’s pizza. It’s a northland staple. They have made their way to the metro. Still as good as ever. Check their site and read their history. http://mysammys.com/index2.shtml

  51. Someone already said Matt’s Bar for the JuLu’s…also I recommend Corner Table.

  52. I love this blog. I’ve tried numerous new places you’ve recommended and your reviews are spot on. I have been motivated to try new places more often these days. A recent find was the Purple Sandpiper out in Bloomington. If you like good quality, fresh and local food this place is definitely worth checking out.

    P.S. If you go on their Facebook they have posted on their wall a couple of coupons that are good till the middle of the month.

  53. Hi, Try Al Vento Restaurant, 34th Ave. East..They are having a superb deal. I got this from this website, http://www.dailyminneapolis.com..

  54. I love Shooters Billiards burgers. All the food is amazing, but there burgers, as well as there all day breakfast is amazing. Great atmosphere. Cafe in back with an open view of the pool hall. As well as out of the way of the noise of the arcade. Check it out sometime. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

  55. I lived in Denver for many years and learned to appreciate good authentic Mexican food. The best place I have tried here in the cities is Los Ocampos which just opened near 95 and White Bear Ave….the old Baker’s Square. It was awesome and the portions very generous. I would definitely make it a point to try this one.

  56. You have to Make it to some of the smaller Minneapolis wine and beer bar/restaurants, that usually have Great Gourmet Food!
    I have a couple places in mind so call me when you want to head this way and I am with you! =)

  57. I’m looking for a restaurant…

    I want deep fried chicken from a regular restaurant, not a fast food chain. Are there any restaurants in the Twin Cities that serve fried chicken?

    • I have not tried it yet, but we bought two certificates from Restaurant.com for Tin Cups on Rice St. because many people I know have said they have the best fried chicken around.

  58. Here a few more:

    Ingredient’s Cafe – White Bear Lake
    http://www.ingredientscafe.com/

    Mavericks Roast Beef – Roseville (its located in the same strip mall as Ol’ Mexico)
    http://www.mavericksroastbeef.com/

    WA Frost – St. Paul
    http://www.wafrost.com/
    This place has the nicest patio to sit and relax in the summer. The restaurant and bar is in a beautiful old brick building. With several dining rooms.

    Z-Pizza – Roseville
    http://www.zpizza.com/

  59. Cafe Zia in Roseville. They were a coffee shop but have expanded to offering sandwiches, soups, and salads. They do have wine and beer. I usually order half a panini sandwich with a side salad. Good place for a quick lunch.

  60. Chimborazo in Minneapolis on Central Ave – Fantastic food and flavors – authentic Colombian food.

    Q-Fanatic – Mahtomedi – just discovered – I’m a huge bbq fan and have tried all the spots on the Cities and this place blows them all away. Awesome.

    Matt’s Bar – was surprised you didn’t have them on there for their Juicy Lucy – best Juicy in town – kicks 5-8 to the curb.

  61. You can order some of Minneapolis’ best and reasonably priced restaurant food from http://www.restaurantbridge.com

    We are always adding new restaurants and best of all we deliver the food right to your door!

    Great site you guys have and the information is helpful!

    Josef Disla
    Restaurant Bridge

  62. Had a Juicy Lucy (The Lucifer) at Tin Cups on St. Paul. It was amazing.

  63. I was going to comment on the Tria entry, but figured I’d just send it here. They have a birthday special – go to their restaurant within a week of your birthday, and you get a bottle of wine equal in value to your age. You can also use it as a credit towards a more expensive bottle of wine. We did that last year, and might have to do it again this year.

    Other places around the Dale/Front area are Abettos and Chungs Chow Mein. Abettos is…interesting. They have good subs though. Chungs was closed for about a month, and should re-open in a few days, if they haven’t already.

    If you like roast beef, you need to go to Mavericks’ on Lexington, by Ol’ Mexico. Real, shaved roast beef. My wife swears on the roast beef sandwich with onion rings, and I get the roast beef dinner. They’ll give you free samples of other stuff if you don’t get it – like the brisket. Very tasty. The owner is super nice and the place is great.

    Glad you posted the photos you use on your blog on Flickr – otherwise, I wouldn’t have known that your blog was out there!

    -Dave

    • I tried Tria and I also went to Abetto’s based on your suggestion. My Heartburn sub was great and the Hot Dago was pretty good too. Thanks!

  64. I noticed that you tried Savoys Pizza, for there thin crust pizza, I was wondering if you have ever tried there competitor Village Pizza in North Saint Paul? I personal think it is very close to savoys but a little better.
    I really recommend that you try them.
    Sincerely a loyal reader

  65. Check out Keegan’s Irish Pub in NE Minneapolis for the best beers, authentic Irish atmosphere, great food and live music.

  66. You-NEED- to go to Tiger Sushi in MOA! I just went there today and had the most AMAZING meal! They had these scallop purses which are similar to cheese wontons in that they’re deep fried but there is an amazing mix in them I cant describe and a mango dipping sauce I couldn’t get enough of!…For lunch I had their Crunchy roll which I can only describe as “Heaven on a plate” and the topper was they has a house blend wasabi sause (mix of paste, lemon juice, soy sauce etc) that…if I wasnt such a sissy I would DRINK!!! It was just a little place on the second floor, it seems like a fast food thing but they serve wine and japanese beer and have a great peach tea!

  67. All these restaraunts sound great! I was just at the Bulldogg in NE and noticed that they have this thing called the Toepener in the bathroom. Why don’t all these restaurants put one in!? I hate germy handles!

  68. Hazeltine National Golf Club

    New club house new executive chef with new exciting ideas bringing
    the high end of Minneapolis food to the all new hazeltine club house privite club with food that will blow you away.

  69. Nong’s Thai Cuisine in Golden Valley. We went there last week as a result of a Groupon deal and the food was outstanding along with the service.

  70. Great Food, Great Service, Huge place, Great Happy Hour 3-6 everyday with Appitizers $5 or $6. Great BURGERS, and Brick Oven Pizza’s!! In Spring Lake Park. 20 Flat Screens + 3 HD Big Screens!

  71. This place is a little out of the way if you’re in the downtown area. The trip is well worth it! The Cove Pub has awesome burgers and is a pretty chill but rock themed spot. Check it out here : http://covepub.com

  72. Bayport BBQ in Bayport Mn, near Stillwater. Pretty new place ( as of Jan 2011). Absolutely fantastic smokieness. I really hope this place makes it. Also try Smalley’s Carribean BBQ in Stillwater.

  73. I have to have you put Thanh Truc in Woodbury on your list. I’ve been there twice now and found both times very enjoyable. See here for my full review: http://eatcookread.wordpress.com/2011/01/21/thanh-truc-aka-green-bamboo-woodbury-mn/ .

    PS – I would love to learn how you turned your blog/foodie hobby into a business. I’m super passionate about food and my next goal is getting the next level of camera (a Rebel or PX100) and then go from there.

  74. I was actually looking to start an all Fried Food Restaurant, just wondering what people think of the idea.

  75. Great blog! You should try Pizza Biga on 48th and Chicago in South MPLS. Its my favorite hole in the wall. It has a beautiful brick oven and pizza dough is made by Turtle Bread bakers. It just started using local cheeses and serving local beers. Simple but delicious…and inexpensive! -Lola

  76. You should try out the following restaurants! I love them and they include downtown and suburban locations.
    1. Enjoy! Restaurant and Bar – Apple Valley
    2. The St. Paul Grill – Downtown St. Paul
    3. Tria Restaurant and Bar – North Oaks
    4. Pazzaluna – Downtown St. Paul
    5. M ST. Cafe – Downtown St. Paul

    • I have since tried Enjoy! and Tria and enjoyed both very much. The seabass at Enjoy was wonderful and I can’t stop thinking about the white chocolate pistachio ice cream at Tria. The wild mushroom Flatbread was also wonderful. Can’t wait to go back to both.

  77. Isaac’s Cafe in Maplewood!

  78. SURPRISE! DRINK, in Uptown is no longer just a bar, although they continue to have a great happy hour and a party every night they have add an extensive affordable menu. They still honor nachos, .35cent Wednesday wings but they also have King Crab, New York Strip, Vodka Pasta and a fresh catch…. and di you know they open on Sunday’s at 11:00 for brunch and a wonderful bloody mary bar.
    I am impressed! And the service went from being average to excellent over night!

  79. You must try Fusion, located in Uptown! Unbelieveable happy hour; $4 martini’s, $10 bottemless glasses of wine, buy onje appetizer get one free and $5 maki rolls!!!

    Their “DATE” Night is untouchable; $30 gets you 2 movie tickets, an appetizer, 2 entrees and a bottle of wine.

  80. Roma Market
    Mahtomedi, MN
    Brick oven pizzas and the best sandwiches around.
    ROMA Restaurant
    http://www.roman-market.com
    (651) 653-4733
    460 Stillwater Rd, Willernie, MN

  81. You have to try Bricks in Blaine on Hwy 65 and 105th, just in front of the Koh’s and Menards. They consider themselves a pub, but I compare it to Axel’s Bonfire. They bake their pizza’s in a brick fireplace, along with select appitizer’s and burgers.

    It’s the 3rd restaurant that’s been in it’s location in 3 years. I hope it can make it. It can use all the publicity it can get. There’s not too many places in the northern suburbs that offer Ceviche. I feel like I’m on Top Chef when I look at the menu.

  82. Las Manjeras @ 1507 E. Lake in Minneapolis. Best Mexican I’ve ever had. I had the Shrimp Diablo and Ceviche. It was literally the best Mexican cuisine I’ve ever had and I live about a mile out of West St. Paul.

  83. From http://www.twincities.com/restaurants/ci_16143006?nclick_check=1

    Bars Bakery (612 Selby Ave., St. Paul; 651-224-8300; bars bakery.com). It just opened last week, and I’m already wondering what I did before Bars Bakery came to town. The buttery bars, the apricot scones, the goat cheese tarts — oh, my!

    Cafeteria (3001 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis; 612-877-7263; uptowncafeteria.com). The room is loud, the rooftop view is spectacular and the skinny servers (squeezed into tight pants) are young at this pseudo-cafeteria, where diners fill up on Swedish meatballs, buttermilk-fried chicken, meatloaf sliders and shrimp fried rice. For birthdays and other special occasions, Cafeteria sends out big, fluffy cones of cotton candy.

    Caribe (791 Raymond Ave., St. Paul; 651-641-1446; caribemn. com). It’s just a little neighborhood Caribbean-style cafe, but the food is personal, memorable and delicious. What should you eat? The mango and white cheese empanadillas, the BLT with avocado and grilled pineapple aioli, the shrimp with black pepper rum glaze. Polish off your meal with tres leches cake and check out the weekend breakfast menu.

    The Depot Tavern (17 N. Seventh St., Minneapolis; 612-338-1828). First Avenue’s new bar is not only one of the few places in downtown Minneapolis where you can get a reasonably

    Advertisement

    priced breakfast on weekends, but it also stays open until 2 a.m. And the bar fare is really very good. The Diamond Dog — 1/4 pound hot dog wrapped with bacon, deep-fried and served on a pretzel bun — is a contender for my 10 Best Dishes list this year. And don’t miss out on the awesome triple-fried fries.
    Faces (Cray Plaza, 380 Jackson St., St. Paul; 651-209-7776; facesmearspark.com). David Fhima, who ran LoTo in this space overlooking Mears Park, makes a comeback. This time around, he gets it right. The American comfort food comes with a modern twist and reasonable prices. The room is as good-looking as the servers. There’s also a bar, deli, bakery and wine shop.

    Heartland (289 E. Fifth St., St. Paul; 651-699-3536; heartlandrestaurant.com). Two months ago, Heartland reopened in Lowertown. The bigger, fancier digs better suit the upscale daily-changing dinner menu focused on local ingredients. But you don’t have to spend a bundle to get the Heartland experience. There’s also a wine bar and a market with a deli and bakery open morning ’til night.

    Patisserie 46 (4552 Grand Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612-354-3257; patisserie46.com). If you like French pastries, this neighborhood gem has the best around. I love the gibassiers, the wonderful doughnut-like treats with anise and candied orange peel.

    Roman Anthony’s (1350 E. Minnesota 96, White Bear Lake; 651-414-9613; romananthonys. com). The room is retro, but the menu is up to date, so you get a taste of the past and present in one package. Try any of the pastas, the beef carpaccio with arugula salad or the giant bone-in rib-eye with gorgonzola crust and amaretto-glazed cherries. Don’t dismiss the

    (Pioneer Press illustration: Kirk Lyttle)
    Caesar salad made tableside.
    Szechuan Spice (3016 Lyndale Ave., S. Minneapolis; 612-353-4281). The couple who run Tea House in St. Paul recently opened this spot at Lyn-Lake, serving mainly a rich mix of Szechuan and Hunan specialties, but there are also Shanghai-style soup dumplings, scallion pancakes and Peking duck. The hardest part of eating here is deciding what to order.

    Thom Pham’s Wondrous Azian Kitchen (533 Henne-pin Ave., Minneapolis; 612338-1479; wondrousmpls.com). Thom Pham knows how to create a scene. The restaurant looks like Las Vegas with a splash of Hong Kong. The bar would be a great spot to sip a Singapore Sling or a Bombay martini before a Twins game. The Asian-fusion food is hit and miss, but if you stick to sushi and appetizers, you probably won’t be disappointed.

    World Street Kitchen (Nicollet Mall and Fifth Street, Minneapolis; eatwsk.com). Saffron chef/owner Sameh Wadi, king of lamb bacon, is also at the helm of this brand-new seasonal restaurant on wheels. Step up to the truck and feast on spicy and flavorful lamb tacos, meatball subs and salted caramel ice cream sandwiches — for less than $5. Let’s pray that the weather stays nice for a long time.

  84. Try The Tavern Grill in Blaine, MN, it used to be Bella where you have eaten at before but it closed. Go to the new Tavern grill it opened in April 2010, you wont be disappointed!! They have build your own burgers, byo salad, and byo pizza!! Different concept but its affordable and delicious!

  85. Try Obento Ya, on Como in Minneapolis!

  86. Anything on Selby restaurant row – La Grolla, Cheeky Monkey, WA Frost, Moscow on the Hill, Bon Vie, it goes on and on. And stop at a Piece of Cake for dessert! Love that street!!!!

  87. Swede Hollow Cafe is one of my east side-St. Paul favorites! Great potato/cheddar pie, cinnamon rolls, soups, salads and sandwiches…plus a great cup of coffee on the way to work! :)

  88. I had the Thursday night special – RIBS at the Tin Cup. The best ribs I have ever had.

  89. The Tin Cup 1220 Rice Street, St Paul just opened June 1st. The place looks amazing !! and the food is GREAT !! fried chicken, juicy lucy’s, flat bread pizza’s, memphis nachos….lots more !!! I have only tried a few things but look forward to going back to try everything !! They have a full restaurant and bar. They are starting happy hour this week and the meat raffle starts at 5pm on Fridays.

  90. You have to know about this panaderia,They have the the best coal fired bread and coal fired sadwiches. The place is called the Jerenenzana and the sandwhich you need to try is the Jerenzano. It’s a combo of all types of Italian cold cuts. They do not use a press, they throw the son of a guns back in the wood fired ovens. They come out owsosing with Italian coldcutoil. On your next trip to this area you need to look up this hole in the wall.There is no doubt that you will be impressed. I’m a busy guy but let me know when your in town.The place is in Santurce, PR, Give me a call at 787-354-2055

  91. Try Johnny’s Chicago Style Beef and Dogs in Apple Valley. They have excellent Chicago dogs and Italian beef sandwiches. I grew up in Chicago and It’s very “old school” which reminded me of the hot dog stands back home. They even have Italian Ice which is very Chicago. It’s a very clean and very family friendly place with a retro 50’s look including a 6′ tall hot dog man. When you walk in you’ll immediately smell the food coming from the open steamers and you’re instantly hungry. Try it, it’s the closest thing to Chicago I’ve found.

  92. Victor’s 1959 Cafe is a good Cuban restaurant on Grand in Minneapolis. Their breakfasts are pretty delicious, but seating is limited and it fills up fast.

  93. You MUST try Ring Mountain Creamery & Cafe in Eagan! It has the best ice cream and gelato outside Mpls/ St. Paul and easily beats some of the inner cities’ ice cream joints as well. 21 flavors each of ice cream and gelato/sorbet that are made in house and change daily. They also have a full cafe with espresso drinks, sandwiches, soups and salads that are tasty and are made to order. But the real draw is the dessert :)

    If you can, I suggest getting the caramel and salty peanut gelato together in a waffle cone or, if you’re lucky and feeling daring, the jalapeno lime sorbet = NOM! You can always sample before you choose and they even have a tasting menu option: 5 “taster” scoops of your choice of any combination of ice cream, gelato, or sorbet.

  94. Merlins Rest on 36th and East Lake Street has a fantastic new summer menu! They kept their tasty classics like British-style fish and chips but they added Thousand Hills Beef for their burgers and they have an incredible vegetarian menu! I also love their beers (ranging from Bellhaven to locals like Finnegans).

  95. You should give Nacho Mama’s in Stillwater a try. HUGE portions, so be ready. It’s a good little hole in the wall. Food reminds me of the Mexican food I can get out west. Love it!

  96. Fasika on Snelling and Sherburne in St Paul. Best Ethiopian food in the Cities in my opinion! I suggest a lamb combo and a veggie combo :)

  97. You would LOVE Jax Cafe in NE Mpls. Sunday Brunch is amazing. I leave so full each time I usually don’t eat again until 9 -10 pm and then only a light snack. Food is amazing and service is great. For dinner they are famous for steaks. Seafood is great too, especially the catch-your-own rainbow trout from the river/pond out on the patio. Very classy place. Check out their 2010 special: 8 oz. sirloin, salad, potato, etc, ice cream for $20.10.

  98. You should definitely check out Tinucci’s in Newport. It’s an institution! They are open Thursday-Sunday (Mon-Wed they do only banquets). In addition to a regular menu they offer different buffets each night: Thursday – Italian Buffet, Friday – Fish Fry Buffet, Saturday – Prime Rib Buffet and Sunday – Brunch. Excellent food, outstanding service and atmosphere of an old time supper club. Check it out!

  99. How about reviewing BD’s Mongolian in Burnsville… Personally, I think they are better than Khan’s or Mongo’s. I reviewed them on my blog a while back..

  100. If you ever go to Cabo you got to try this restaurant. It is one of the few that made me feel that I had spent a really memorable night with amazing views, great food and attentive service. http://www.sunsetmonalisa.com

  101. Try the New Indian Restaurant (Dosa King) at 8492 Central Ave NE, Springlake Park, MN 55432

  102. Punch Neopolitan Pizza (http://www.punchpizza.com)

    Great woodfire pizzas! They’re “Personal” size but we always get a few different ones and share. Love their crust!

  103. La Grolla on Selby. Wonderful Italian food and they have this great appetizer called “Capasante” which is fried spaghetti noodles with scallops and a lobster sauce. WONDERFUL!

  104. I highly recommend Joe’s Garage in Mpls. by Loring Park. They have a great menu, and wonderful mashed potatoes with a variety of topping choices. They have a great balcony for outdoor seating in the summer and they have Sunday Brunch. Also, some great desserts.

  105. The Shaw Burger at Shaw’s is absolutely heavenly. They are located at:
    1528 University Ave NE
    Minneapolis, MN 55413

  106. check out the new Indian Vegetarian Restaurant “Dosa King” a pure Indian Vegetarian Restaurant on 8492 Central Ave NE, SpringLake Park,MN-55432.

    Try out the Dosa’s.

  107. Thought you might like to try a “before & after” in a tiny restaurant my husband and I are changing now.

    If you would like to taste the traditional Hungarian dishes and wines, go to the Liszt Ferenc Square’s Café Miró Grande!
    They have fresh and delicious food, polite service and pleasant atmosphere in the city of the centre.
    I have been there several times with my friends already and we always got good impressions on the Hungarian hospitlity.
    Try it, you wont regret it!
    You can check the pleasant atmosphere of this place under http://www.cafemiro.hu/grande/

  120. Eden Pizza in St Paul at 629 Aldine is awesome gourmet pizza. Their pizzas are inspired and delicious! http://www.edenpizza.com/specials.html
    They have this inferno sauce that mixed with Ranch is so amazing. Make sure and try it with whatever pizza you choose. :)

  121. you should try El burrito Mercado on the west side of saint Paul.
    its is has a grocery store, with a bakery with a bunch of Mexican deserts and stuff.
    i always get the two taco platter with chicken or beef it comes with rice and refried beans, and in the backery i have only tried a doughnut but the rest looks good.
    the tamales are yummy also.

  122. Hello,
    I live in Hungary, next to Budapest. I often go to my favourite restaurant which located in the heart of Budapest.
    I think Café Miró Grande is a very famous restaurant here because hosts are friendly and main dishes are fantastic! I always eat Buttery veal roast or Paprika chicken with egg-dumpling souffle. And prices are ordinary, not expensive.
    Wine selection is mostly Hungarian Wines. My favourite wine is Tokaji in this restaurant.
    I suggest all people who travel to Budapest!
    Best Regards,
    http://www.cafemiro.hu/grande/

  123. How about a nice drive up to New Richmond to try Bellarietta Bistro? Their Creme Brulee is the best I’ve ever tasted. http://www.bellarietta.com/

  124. The cheese curds are awesome there, remind me of State Fair ones. Always exceptional staff and consistant great food.

  125. Please try Taste of Asia in Coon Rapids. We have been eating there for about a year and a half, and have yet to be disappointed. Hot and Spicy anything is great. Laab Esan, Beef with Peapods and Broccoli, Beef and Potatoes. Just try anything. Yum.
    We like the site. We’ll be back. So many good restaurants, so little time.

  126. OMG you have to go check out this little gold mind of a sportsbar restaraunt in the NEW Brooklyn Park located on the corner of highway 610 & Zane called: Victory Grill – great food great staff great atmoshphere – website http://www.victorygrill.net GO GO GO

  127. You Need to check out Ingredients Cafe in White Bear Lake, on 4th street and highway 61 right by the infamous cup and cone. Fantastic food, local produce, fresh ingredients, great drinks, i could go on and on. Just check it out and review it for me. love to know what you think.

  128. Pak Zam Zam on Central Ave NE – great daal & kabobs – weekend breakfast is a treat also!

  129. Pak Zam Zam on Central Ave NE – great daal & kabobs – weekend breakfast is a treat also!

  130. Check out Broder’s (italian) on 50th & Penn in South Minneapolis, then… head over to 44th and France (actually Sunnyside) for the best malt ever at the Convention Grill!

  131. I know this is a little ways out of the city but it is way worth the drive.
    Tangled Up in Blue in Taylors Falls, MN is my absolute favorite resaurant to travel to. The menu changes often so I won’t get specific but everything is awesome.
    Chef Ross’ special is a 4 course dinner that is paired with wine and it is always amazing.
    You should check it out if you can.

  132. Stephano’s in Burnsville — corner of Cliff Road and Hwy 13. Great Italian cuisine, service has been fabulous every time we’ve gone, regardless of group size. Menu is small but every bite is worth it!

  133. For Excellent Homemade Italian cuisine, visit D’Avita Ristorante – exciting dishes and a unique ambiance. Order fresh off the menu or make your very own dish by visiting the Pasta Bar (selecting your favorites from over 40-some ingredients). http://www.davitaristorante.com

  134. For wonderful vietnamese food, you should try Tay Ho
    on University Ave. across from Burger King. It sounds
    a little cheesy… But, trust me it’s the BEST
    vietnamese cuisene you will probably ever eat!

  135. For a fabulous dessert, try Grandma Ruby’s Sweet Shoppe in Maple Grove. Amazing fudge — cheesecake fudge is awesome! You can order on-line for shipping or pick up at the store.

  136. Would you review the Town Talk Diner for me? I have always wanted to try it, and I heard that their drink are phenomenal. My husband and I have really enjoyed and agreed with your reviews thus far.
    Thanks!!

  137. Thank you for your suggestion, Katey. You have a valid point about wanting
    the links to the sites instead of having every post to sort through. I can
    do what you have asked but it will take some time to reformat it and to add
    new page links for each category. The way I have it set up now is out of
    convenience for myself, as I just need to add tags to each post and it
    categorizes itself ;)
    Up to this point I have not made a dime on this blog, just putting the info
    out there for the convenience of others so I only work when I can get around
    to it. Hopefully I can add the features you suggested, especially to the
    drop-down menus, in a few weeks.

  138. This isn’t a restaurant recommendation, but a site recommendation. I think it would be great to have a “Back to Top” button/link at the bottom of the pages so I can get back to the search boxes with just a click instead of scrolling. Another thing I was thinking would be nice is when the search results come up, have a listing of which restaurants will be seen – with links to jump straight to the restaurant. Since there are a lot of chains with multiple locations, I could skip scrolling through those if there was a link to jump to a particular restaurant. Don’t know if you can do either of these things but just thought I’d let you know things that I think would make the site a little more user friendly. Otherwise, I love it – thank you for this listing. It’s very helpful.

  139. I’d like to recommend Korean restaurants which offer buffet.
    Parka Cuisine Asian Restaurant/ World Taste Buffet
    1626 White Bear ave. St. Paul
    (Hillcrest Shopping Center)
    651-776-8888
    They have awesome Korean BBQ buffet for dinner including kalbi, bulgogi, seafood, as well as various kinds of kimchi, small dishes, and traditional rice drink!
    King’s restaurant
    1051 East Moore Lake Rd.
    http://www.kingsrestaurant.com/
    They have lunch buffet from Tuesday through Sunday.
    Other Korean restaurants can be found at Dongyang Oriental market in Fridley, and Korean Restaurant by the University of Minnesota campus.

  140. I saw it on here but I’ll suggest it again.
    The Nook, St. Paul.
    It was on Diners Driv-Ins and Dives
    I was looking on here, expecting to find it, and was like “how is it not on here?!”
    Go there! Review it! Please?!

  141. Please Check out Q fanatic in Champlin. Family own BBQ joint. Freshy prepared BBQ and a dozen homemade sides, and 7 sauces to choose from. Great prices with counter service. Best veggies in the Twin Cities, grilled and smoked with fresh garlic.

  142. Jensen’s Supper Club in Eagan. Surf and turf with other American specialties, and the wine list is incredible. It is a bit on the pricey side but the food is solid.
    Also, one martini will set you right, they don’t mess around.

  143. I didn’t even realize that restaurant was still open as Sgt. Peppers??!!
    Haven’t they changed ownership/names a few times??
    Thanks for the recommendation!

  144. Jen says…. Sgt. Peppers in Oakdale!!!!!!! Try a burger, they are awesome!

  145. I recommend Saks Sports bar off County Road E and Hwy 61 in Vadnais Heights/White Bear.
    This used to be Bentleys and is far better. Half price apps and drinks for happy hour, and the food is to die for.
    Best wings I have ever had, side salad is much more than just lettuce and dressing and the sliders are juicy, thick served with hand cut fries.
    Cant wait to go back and eat my way through the menu.
    Love your site too!

  146. K-Wok (Vietnamese/Chinese) Cedar & Riverside
    Lily’s Cafe (Central Ave)
    Tam-Tam’s (African)
    Chai (Thai)

  147. Gandhi Mahal – 3009 27th Ave – Longefellow, Mpls. Love, love, love it.
    Town Talk Diner – East Lake Street

  148. How about Hudson WI-18 minutes from downtown St Paul
    the San Pedro Cafe serves carribean food, with fresh grouper and a wood fire oven for all their wood smoke flavors

  149. Went here last night, great place to review – Biaggi’s in Maple Grove. Italian food, it’s tasty!

  150. Hey, my wife, son, and I just moved here in March and have used your guide for several of our restaurant ventures.
    Curious as to why you haven’t reviewed three of our newfound favorites: Little Szechuan on University (close to the Capitol), any of the D’Amico and Sons locations, and Brasa, a rotisserie restaurant on Hennepin (going east past Surdyk’s).
    Thanks for the blog, and keep up the good work! Our taste buds [and expanding bellies] appreciate it!

  151. Try the Walleye at Wintergreens in Isanti. A hidden gem!

  152. I would love to see what you think of Ingredients in White Bear Lake – they are a little pricey, but it’s a nice little place.
    Also, could you review Ursula’s Wine Bar and Cafe in WBL? I’ve never been there and don’t know many people who have been, so I would like to see what you think of it first!
    Also, thank you in general for the great blog! I have bookmarked it and have given the link to numerous friends and family! We all really appreciate your reviews and your dedication to the blog! You do a wonderful job!

  153. What a great idea for a blog! Here are some places I think you should try:
    Shantytown Bar and Grill in Bloomington- Try one of their awesome burgers and their tater tots! They also have a great dip for the tots. Yum! :)
    Akita Sushi and Hibachi in Woodbury – Delicious sushi and tempura!
    The Buffet at Mystic Lake Casino – Try their seafood buffet on Wednesday nights – yummy!
    Carbone’s Pizza on Randolph in St. Paul specifically – The pizza is delicious and the service is great!
    Izzy’s Ice Cream in St. Paul – Great concept for an ice cream place and the flavors are rich!
    The Nook in St. Paul – Great burgers and fries!

  154. Park’a BBQ Grill & Buffet in Saint Paul, 1626 White Bear Ave at the Hillcrest Shopping Center. Great Asian Buffet with made to order Korean BBQ (steaks, kabobs, and dishes), KimChi Bar, full chinese buffet. Also can order off menu.

  155. Sen Yai Sen Lek -great new Thai place in NE

  156. This place is by far the most representative of traditional Italian cuisine around. Be sure to arrive hungry!
    http://www.ristoranteluci.com/

  157. One more.
    Aesop’s Table on Dale in St. Paul. Close to Dale and Front. Nice little deli counter. Get the ‘Porker’ for lunch, it’s a 1 lb pulled pork sandwich that is wonderful.

  158. Fasika: Ethiopian place on Snelling and University. Try the veggie platter, beef/lamb tibs, key wot, or the ‘ultimate combination platter’. Awesome place.
    West Indies Soul: Dale and University. Authentic Jamaican food. Jerk chicken is the ultimate (and very spicy), and curried chicken, jamaican patties are good.
    Spice: Hwy 42, west of 35E/W in Burnsville. Very good red, brown, yellow, etc, curries.

  159. – Los Andes on Lake or La Gran Colombia on 26th & Central in NE Mpls. Both are very similar. Colombian/Ecuadorian food.
    – Pop! in NE Mpls (I think they just put a new one in St. Paul, but I have never been there). Local, good, and not expensive!
    – Snap! in NE Mpls (owned by same owners as Pop), local pizza place.

  160. The Nook in St Paul has the BEST burgers!!

  161. You should check out Liberty Frozen Custard on 54th and Nicollet.
    Best ice cream I’ve had in the Twin Cites.

  162. Hello – love the blog! My husband and I just started a similar one – http://wegotserved.blogspot.com and we have a HUGE list of places we want to try that is on the right hand side of our blog – there might be a few places you haven’t tried yet!

  165. The Melting Pot in Mpls. is amazing. It is spendy, but so worth it. Great for a special evening

  166. Canyon Grille in Coon Rapids…

  167. Try:
    Al Vento in Minneapolis. Order the Ceasar Salad. It is great. So is their wine list.

  168. My favorite restaurant is Kincaid’s. Some others Michael and I enjoy are Pepitos, M&S Grill, Yarusso Bros., Acapulco, (only for their tacos and their cheese dip) Cossetta’s, and Dowtowner Woodfire Grill (have had breakfast there numerous times). I know there are some duplicates from other’s posts but I hope that helps.

  171. Hands down my favorite spot is the Caspian Bistro.

    They have a little market connected to the Bistro, which has fantastic imports.
    The Caspian Bistro
    2418 University Ave SE
    Minneapolis, MN 55414-3033
    Chow!

  172. Spendy but worth it — The Bayport Cookery in Bayport near Stillwater. Fantastic 5 course meal with wine pairing. Love it Love it there!
    Also one of my favs Cobblestone Cafe in WBL love the pancakes!

  173. Punches pizza rocks, I have been to both the Highland and the northeast Mpls locations. We prefer the Northeast location. The Nook burger joint in highland sucks, (they have good fries). Food network diners drive ins and dives did a thing on them, I thought it was not worth the drive, but you might want to check it out. And Bleechers bar and grill has the most awesome burgers for a buck, yes a buck…cheese you add 50 cents… french fries are a buck as well… its a deal and it is very very good. New restaurant in Oakdale called Que Pasta just opened. The people that owned the Venetian inn are part of this restaurant. Haven’t been there, but give it a try.

  174. Great overall restaurants:
    Oceanaire–everything is exceptional, go on a birthday and they’ll customize the days menu with your name on it (we brought Ryan’s mom there a couple weeks ago and they had the menu’s made up with “Happy Birthday Beverly” on the top. She almost fell over, I think she’s having it framed!
    Gianni’s steakhouse in downtown Wayzata. Absolutely phenomenal steak and custom tossed Caesar salads.
    Jimmy’s in Hopkins (not related to Jimmy’s in WBL). Excellent food. I’ve had the BBQ ribs for appetizer and a shrimp/avocado salad. Everyone that goes there loves it.
    Macy’s Restaurant in Ridgedale Mall(not sure of the name): Chx stir fry and pop over’s
    Town Talk Diner in SMpls: Mickeys 40 chilled in a wine holder (seriously), pulled BBQ sandwich phenomenal, everything is really good…even the hotdogs!
    What we crave:
    The King and I Tai in Mpls—very good! recommend Wontons and the red curry dish.
    Peppitos (the restaurant) in South Mpls: the BBQ Ch tacos…exceptional
    The Uptown Diner (not grill) in Uptown: Very best Tex Mex in town…unbelievable, especially on hang over mornings. We’ll order it for take out and drive into the city to get it. You can split the 1/2 order between two people.
    Than Do in Hopkins: Cranberry Chx Curry is exceptional
    Others that are good– if you are in the area:
    Maggies (in Wayzata)-pizza is exceptional
