DSM: Notable Downtown Dining Options

s4zando | Jan 20, 2009 06:40 PM

DSM Foodies...

A friend and I are road-tripping to Des Moines on Friday to catch a band at a downtown area club. (We're staying at the Renaissance Savery Hotel - Go Priceline!)

We'd like to find some place around the downtown area for dinner. Here's the other criteria:
Good food, Good service, Interesting (decor and/or food and/or location, etc.), Not a chain or something easily obtained in the Twin Cities (no Famous Dave's or Bucca), Price is not an object, but for the sake of discussion let's not get crazy (somewhere around 3-4 $'s out of 5), Not too difficult to get in in or get a reso (we're going 1/23/09), No particular style - we're open to ideas, What embodies DSM? (KC=BBQ (and beef))

We're also interested in ideas for Breakfast on Saturday - No holds barred on this. Can be DSM or northward towrds the TC's. Oh hell, for a *GOOD* breakfast. we'll travel anywhere...

Hit me with your best shots...

Thanks in advance,
