I also love Saffron, Bar La Grassa, La Belle Vie, and had a lovely lunch today at the Dakota. Yummy squash soup!
Q – #5 In your opinion, are there any types of restaurants that the Twin Cities is lacking, and are the too many of 1 type?
A: Minnesotans love their steak, so I think there are a few too many steakhouses. Burger joints are also a little overdone
I love all the new food carts-fun trend that’s finally catching on here (@Chefshack1) I wish there was more dim sum though!
