hello hounds -
I've been reading many of your posts re: Msp in preparation for a 2-evening/dinners trip next month. Having weighed many of your comments (which hold more weight than a printed menu) along with dining destination's sites, I've narrowed down our options to a tight few. I would like a specific rec btwn the two - Heidi's or Alma for one of the evenings. The other night is already claimed, so it can't be both.
I'm a vegetarian, and will be visiting in Msp w/ my dad, who's happily not a vegetarian. I'm also a foodie, not into tofu and "vegetarian" stuff like all kinds of fake meats. I'm accustomed to dissecting a menu and reading the fine print to look for chefs that really sing the praises of the non-animals, and I'm comfortable with both Heidi's and Alma for those reasons. I've reviewed countless - and I mean ALL of the restaurants that y'all post about - menus in Msp, so I'd politely request that we not go off course and get into other suggestions. I've looked at them all. A preference btwn Heidi's or Alma is what I'm interested in. : ) And whichever one we don't get to this trip, we can always try the next time.
One additional question out of curiosity: nobody eats at Cosmos these days? Has it completely fallen out of favor? We're staying at the Graves601, and I thought of that as an option as I'd heard so much about it a few years ago. I'm not planning on eating there this trip unless we'd be missing something. I understand from comments that many think it's pricey. Is that the real drawback, or is it just not worth the bother?
Thanks much for your thoughts - I've really learned a lot from reading the boards.
(and if anyone wants any MT dining recs - good luck...... abysmal choices - I'd be happy to help as much as possible).
