A month in Minneapolis - need advice

estone888 | May 17, 2008 06:16 PM

I'm a Los Angeles hound. My girlfriend will be in Minneapolis for a month for work. She'll be staying downtown, without a car - on Eighth near Hennepin to be precise.

What are you recommendations for:

Good, cheap to moderate places she can walk to for lunch, breakfast, casual dinners?

Some fancy places that are nearby for fancier dinners with some friends who will be visiting?

Don't miss places anywhere in Minneapolis-St. Paul for the weekend that I'll be visiting and renting a car?

Good ethnic, particularly Asian or Middle Eastern places?

Is there anywhere that does a particularly great job with locally raised or produced ingredients? Minnesota-cuisine, so to speak?

Thanks very much. Let me know when you need help in L.A.
