I am a temorary transplant from NY and have found these boards very helpful. Tomorrow is the birthday of my significant other and I am looking for a great place for dinner. I am sad to hear about the closing of Auriga and I am wondering if 112 and W. Puck's restaurant are good alternatives. Willing to spend money and open to all kinds of cuisine as long as it is good. Twin Cities, St. Paul, or surrounding areas welcome.
