Twin Cities visit (MSP)

My wife and I are making our first visit to the Twin Cities (discounting my brief trip in 1977) for about 2 days and 3 evenings before heading to Rochester. We will be staying at Graves 601.

I tend to favor the New American school of food along with local available options otherwise not usually available. We live in central California (the uncool part of the state but not that far from San Francisco) so we don't need Mexican, Korean, Chinese. We want some nice dinners with food most important but we also like wine. I am considering Alma, 112 and Corner Table for dinner. We would be interested also in Vietnamese, possibly favoring the (yeah, right) "authentic." knowing that is the unreachable ideal (and I am not really interested in drinking live snake blood or the like - long story). So I will probably willingly eat at Ngon Bistro for the pho and banh mi.

Are these choices reasonable? I cannot find anything recent about Corner Table. I might like some truly "local" options and cheap breakfast/lunch options including some gastropub options, burgers, etc. Thanks, Tom Hall
