I'm a NYC hound headed to Minneapolis for the first time tomorrow. I'm staying Downtown and will have a car. I've spent a lot of time perusing the board trying to figure out where to have 3 meals in Minneapolis: breakfast Saturday, lunch Saturday and a late lunch/early dinner around 3-4 p.m. on Sunday.
Based on what I've read on this board, Hell's Kitchen looks like a good choice for Saturday breakfast.
What about Saturday lunch? I'd like to try a classic Minneapolis lunch spot if such a thing exists. I don't need anything fancy, but if fancy lunches are what Minneapolis does best, then I'm game. I'm just looking for a quintessential Minneapolis lunch. Thoughts?
Finally, I'm looking to have a final meal on Sunday afternoon around 3-4 p.m. Unfortunately, the most highly praised restaurants on this board -- 112, Saffron, Bar La Grassa, Piccolo, etc. -- all appear to be closed on Sunday around 4 p.m. I'm not too keen on steak, so Manny's is out of the question.
Any ideas, friends?
Thanks in advance!
