Hello-I have read all the posts about the great places in Minneapolis but I've never been there and mapping all of them is quite laborious. Thought I could get some help refining where to go and help shaping a tentative plan.
We have 4 days and nights. We are doing the Uptown Art Fair located at Hennepin and Lake and staying at the Doubletree1500 Park Place Blvd.
1. Any suggestions for cheap eats (up to $15 a plate) within walking distance of those addresses? Any kind of food.
2. Then we'd like to do one higher end dinner so what is the one big MUST eat for a Chowhound? (leave out Asian-from DC area and eat it alot)
3. Coffee...gotta have great coffee and it needs to be close to the hotel.
4. Lastly, if there was one thing we've got to try tell me even if it requires driving.
We have a car but often drive around in circles in new cities and would prefer to avoid that which is why walking distance would be great.
Sounds like Nyes would be fun for a cocktail. The Global Market too is in my plan.
