I'll be in MSP next week for work and I'm staying at the Hilton and I'll have meetings between there and the Convention center. Most of the meals will unfortunately be in the hotel/center--but when I can get out to eat--where do you suggest I go? I'm really looking for regional favorites--it does not have to be 5 star (it's probably better if it is not). I'm coming from NYC metro--so I'm not interested in trying any Italian/pizza places. I love ethnic foods--so please give me some of your favorites and approximate distance (by foot, cab, etc) from where I'll be. I will not have a car for this trip--so I'll probably want to stay in the city.
Thanks in advance!
