American | Downtown / Loring Park, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

We sat outside on their newly remodeled patio and it was a lovely evening. Our server Sam is a favorite of ours - so gracious and amiable. We ate simply (a shared burger, fries and a salad) and it was very good and served in adequate portions to share. I recently hosted a group brunch at Prairie Kitchen and everything was excellent - a semi private eating area, good service and great food. We like Prairie Kitchen a lot and would recommend it for casual dining anytime of day. More

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

I have been wanting to try this restaurant and booked a table on the patio. Unfortunately it was rainy so we had to sit inside. It was very noisy and I felt like we were all shouting to be heard. The food was excellent, however it was poorly coursed out. Our oysters came after the salad instead of before and the entrees arrived shortly afterward so we did not have time to finish the salad or oysters and it made the table very crowded. I would like to come back and try the patio and would recommend the food! 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.
