My wife and I are visiting Minneapolis in a couple weeks and don't have all that much time so we're trying to cram as much as we can in, foodwise. We are both vegetarians, so a few must-dine places (La Belle Vie, for example) aren't on the list.
The food budget for the trip will ideally be kept under $500, which I think is going to be rather easy (we do drink wine but we're more likely to get it by the glass or half-bottle).
Here's our tentative plan, let me know if anyone has suggestions:
The first thing we're doing is visiting the Mall and having lunch in the mall. Napa Grille and Tucci Benucch look good, and on the more casual end, so does the Wolfgang Puck Express place. Any suggestions?
Dinner is at Cafe Brenda. The hotel we're staying at the first night is near the mall--any thoughts on driving versus light rail?
The next day we're staying downtown, lunch seems good at the Birchwood Cafe and dinner plans are at Vincent. Does anyone have other lunch suggestions?
Sunday, before returning home we're thinking about having brunch at Hell's Kitchen.
