[Chowhound Challenge of the Week]
Well ... the parents are coming for Christmas (from San Jose), and my mom ran into someone from Minneapolis who said that the ABSOLUTE best thing to do in Minneapolis in December is to make a reservation on the _second_ floor of a restaurant on Nicollet and watch the Holidazzle parade. So now, my mom is totally fixated on doing this.
Please Chowhound, where can I eat that will give my mother her desired parade-watching experience and give my wife and I a good meal? It has to be on the second floor of a restaurant on Nicollet and have tables near a window that overlooks the mall ... I am too unfamiliar with downtown to know this.
Oh.... and my father is deathly allergic to MSG. Ha!
PS. My apologies if this post just caused the chowishness meter of the Midwest board to peg the left end.
