Comfort Food | Downtown / North Loop, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

Service was amazing from the yome we walked in the door. Host/manager? Was very engaging, bar service was on point. My wife asked about a wine and the BT gave her a sample. Server was very knowledgeable and offered some great recommendations. My short rib was the best in the city. One caveat, theatre nights are crazy, we had our reservation at 7:30. I would recommend that if you want a nice casual experience. More

American | Downtown / Loring Park, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

Good food and friendly server. The only negative is that headlights from cars pulling into the drive at the hotel shine directly into your eyes because the eating area is below grade. Lowering the window coverings might help but perhaps another kind of filter is needed. Very distracting for the person getting the light in their eyes and their guest, who sees lights constantly going across the other person’s face. More

The food was absolutely wonderful. We had the Valentine's Day special of a variety or courses of food at a very reasonable price when compared to BH's main menu or other competitors' choices. We will definitely recommend BH to others and we look forward to our next visit there. 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.
