I need some suggestions. If you were going to host a group of 30-50 people from all over the country and wanted to host a meal at some restaurant in either St. Paul or Mpls that was reasonably priced and paid for by attendees for "per diem" meal budgets for a typical conference (I'm guessing in the $25-35 range w/o drinks), where would you suggest if you wanted to show them some Minnesota/Regional flavor? If you list some that are higher in cost, please include the higher estimates.

Also welcome are suggestions where conference per diem allotments would cover a meal, but there are only a few things on the menu that could be suggested to attendees as truly regional, and list the items you'd order.

Thanks in advance for any input.
