Calamari in downtown MPLS area?

WildSwede | Aug 16, 2010 04:50 PM

We will be visiting in early November and my brother has requested calamari. I have done searches on this board, but like the Los Angeles board, something strange has happened to the MPLS-St Paul board in which this big box blocks half of whatever comes up and I cannot access the golden nuggets of information that I am certain are lurking behind it.
So, I was wondering which restaurants you count as your favorites for calamari?
We had great luck with sushi when we visited a couple of years ago - we did the happy hour at Origami (downtown) and ate til we could eat no more! My brother is still talking about it! Are they still good or are there new sushi places to be tried? Breakfast recs and somewhere to go before the game would be great as well.
We will be staying at the Westin Downtown and attending the Vikings game on Sunday, Nov. 7. We will have a car, so distance is not a problem (or walking or public transit for that matter).
We also enjoyed Hell's Kitchen for breakfast when we were there previously. This time, I am hoping to try Al's. Also, the Pho at Quang was pretty good as well. We found Palomino open late one night (everything else had closed) and had a nice selection of very good appetizers.
Thank you in advance!!
