Need {Recent}restaurant/food recommendations for area around Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN

DebitNM | Feb 4, 2007 08:17 AM

We are going to Rochester MN on 2/6/07 for approximately 2 weeks while I am treated at Mayo Clinic.

I have read older postings on here and understand that we are not going to the gourmet capital of the world. However, while we are here, we would like to have some ideas as to where to eat other than chains. I am looking for some places that we can go together before I am admitted as inpatient and some places for my husband to eat lunch/ dinner while I am in hospital.

We like American, Asian, Greek, Italian, Seafood/Fish, Steak, Italian. Not looking for mexican as we get plenty of that at home. He would also enjoy brew pubs or micrbrewery places. Any recommendations for local beers?

I have done searches on here and lots of the posts are dated. I have looked at rochester websites and have names of places, but not much else to go on as to quality of food.

For the meals for the two of us, price really isn't too important. When he eats alone, he is willing to pay less and have a decent meal with a good [preferably great] beer.

We are staying: Spring Suites on 2nd and I have came upon these possibilities:
Michael's Restaurant;
Bilotti's Italian Village;
Broadstreet Cafe & Bar;
Chardonnay;
City Cafe Mixed Grille & Bar;
City Market;
Newt's;
The RedWood Room;S
Shady Hill Grille

Thanks so much for your insights.
