I know, I know, another special occasion restaurant request post but since some of you know me online and in person I thought I'd call for suggestions.
My 30th birthday is in 2 weeks and my husband will be away. A group of friends have offered to go out and celebrate with me and have asked for restaurant suggestions. Together we've already been to Alma, Solera, El Meson, and many Thai places. Also for previous special occasions I've already been to La Belle Vie, Cosmos, Craftsman, WA Frost and um, well, lots of places that are now closed (Levain, Five, etc.). I want to keep the price point on this reasonable but still make it nicer than a mid-week dinner.
Here's what I've thought of so far:
Any other ideas? Two of us are in Minneapolis and two coming from the Western suburbs so Minneapolis is slightly easier than eastern St. Paul.
