I'll be in the Bloomington next month for a week-long conference. When I'm not being wined and dined on my company's dime, I'd like to venture out to the Minneapolis (at least or twice) and sample the food (on my own dime). Sorry for such a general post, but if you can make any recommendations, I'd appreciate it.
In particular, I'm looking for something uniquely Minneapolis (but Juicy Lucy's don't really interest me). Any good gastropubs? Scandinavian food? Must-eat restaurants? And how's the Global Market?
Keep in mind, I won't have a car (so anything along the Hiawatha Line would be preferred) and not looking for anything really expensive - I'll be with co-workers, not my wife :)
