Emergency Help needed from Minneapolis Hounds

Fydeaux | Jun 30, 2005 01:40 PM

My sister lives in your lovely city. My plans for a particular birthday present fell through suddenly, and I decided that I would like to get her a gift certificate to a restaurant up there, and I need some suggestions.

I have done some reviewing of previous posts, and the following all seem to be well thought of: Cafe Barbette, Cafe Brenda, Solera, Hell's Kitchen, Levain, and Craftsman. Are there any others that should be considered, or any of these that should be eliminated?

Neither price nor area of town are an issue. She did develope a great fondness for soft-shell crab on a recent trip to Baltimore; is there any place that does wonderous things with these?

As an alternative, can anyone tell me of any particular gourmet-level cook's store of a Williams-Sonoma or better?

Many Thanks to you all!
