Howdy Twin City hounds. This NYC hound and his SO will be visiting the City of Lakes next month, staying in downtown Minneapolis. We have two nights - so two dinners - before heading up north to Bemidji and then on to Brainerd.
For MSP, my CH searching has lead me to think about Porter and Frye, Fugaise, Cosmos, 20.21 or perhaps LBV. We've eaten at The Chambers Kitchen in a past visit and while we enjoyed our meal and experience there we want to try something different. I've looked online at the menus at both P&F and Fugaise and both appear eclectic - although personally when I saw the walleye on the menu at P&F my mouth started to drool as of course we don't see walleye out here. (My SO and I don't see "walleye to walleye" on this though point though!) Is the fact that 20.21 is a Puck resto a plus or minus? So for two memorable fine dining experiences in downtown Minneapolis which would be your choices?
I've searched for Bemidji and Brainerd and it appears more than a couple of posts mention the dining wasteland up there. It seems The Angry Trout would be too far for us to try to get to. Any tips on any good breakfast or dinner recs up there would be appreciated. Thanks!
