sorry for the late notice hounds but i appeciate your help. im coming from nyc to minneapolis tomorrow for 4 days. i'd appeciate any recs for uniqueness. ps ill be staying downtown with no car!
viet and somali are top priorities. for viet i was thinking NGON and most definately the hmong market by the capital. how would those be? viet food is so lame in my area ugh.
what would you rec for somali? funny i lived in columbus for awhile, the other american city that got the big somali influx but it was well before that happened --so i missed that boat -- oh well ;) we have tons of pan-african food around nyc, but no somali so thx for you help!
craft beer bars -- i'll need beerfan assistance - ha! STUB&HERBS on the u of m campus looks mandatory, yes? for uptown/lake i was thinking BYRANT LAKE BOWL? other suggestions? anything right downtown that has lots of local and regional selection? and please any recs for types of locals that are your favorites?
miscellaneous: is HELLS KITCHEN worth a try? its not like i can get native american dishes either so i am very interested about this place, yet kind of worried too for some reason. straighten me out on it please .also, is there anyplace for local lake fish you might rec? any neighborhoods 'nodes' with good stuff where i can walk around to several places without getting on a bus or something?finally -- i'd really like to hear some skyway recs too, not that i plan to live up there but i do want to take a walk around it with my camera of course.
thanks again for all your suggestions -- looking forward to the visit!!!
