Will be visiting the area on a writers' residency. I'm from NYC. Wondering if there are any interesting restaurants. Not sure what season I'll be visiting. I hear it's not far from Brainard and was thinking of driving to the Dakotas (one or the other). If anyone has any suggestions, other than going fishing myself and whipping up some trout sushi, let me know. Quirky is good, doesn't have to be one of those gourmet joints. I know nothing of the area, I'm a city gal and looking forward to exploring. Looks like almost all of the people there are of German and Nordic ancestry.
