Looking for dinner recommendations for casual, but high quality Minneapolis/Bloomington-centric restaurants not too far from my hotel -- The Sheraton Bloomington Hotel at 7800 Normandale Blvd. Don't want chains or tourist style places. Where would someone from Minneapolis/Bloomington go for dinner in this area? Short cab rides are ok. Have opportunities for two casual dinners celebrating one associate's birthday and another celebrating the conclusion of a number of successful meetings and want to make sure we don't waste our choices. Not looking for the most expensive places, but good quality cooking and fun places to be.
Thanks from a DC Hound
