We are trying to decide on a restaurant for next Saturday. Our group will be 9 people including 6 out of towners and one toddler (who is used to restaurants). The OOTers include one hard to please into trendy things young couple and two older couples who are open to new things but prefer a more conservative atmosphere. We would like something nice, not casual, but also not fancy.
Our usual go to places are not right for a big group or too casual (Punch, Pop, Holy Land, Birchwod, Brendas, Broders, True Thai) No shared dishes either. (we love to take smaller groups to Solera)
We'd like to stay in Mpls, but are open to St Paul. No burbs please! We love the idea of being able to walk after dinner around the river or the lakes, maybe stopping by Crema.
Places I've thought of, but never been to personally: Black Forest, Sophia, Masa, Wasabi.
Sushi would be great for the younger people, anyone know about the non sushi options at Nami?
