Hi MSP Chowhounders -
I have been combing this board for walking distance recs in downtown Mpls (staying at Radisson) dinner at a mid-price level for persons on a state government expense account. You can imagine that is not like Don Draper's expense account.
I would describe mid-price for dinner as no or few dinner entrees over $25. Not traveling with chowhounders - don't know how adventurous they are - so looking for a creative menu with some dishes that appeal to less adventurous. We do all like a nice glass or two of wine, however.
Must say, not finding a lot in price range meeting food style criteria.
Ike's (no prices posted but menu seems like it would fit price criteria),
Firelake (some over the limit, but lots of plates within price range),
Saffron (might be too adventurous for some),
Bradstreet/Crafthouse (seems like a bar with some bar food.)
Any other thoughts? All on the list above are at the higher end of the price criteria. I am totally unfamiliar with Minneapolis. I see we are right by the Skyway and Nicollet Mall - there must be some restaurants in this area with a lower price range.
Am coming from the desert southwest, so Mexican cuisine is of no interest to us.
Thanks in advance.
