Hey Minnesotans! How about them vikings?
I'm a transplanted 'Sotan living in NYC. Since moving here I've become pretty obsessed with food and am on a constant lookout for the best food in NY. At any rate, I'll be in Minnesota over the holidays and I realized that not having lived in MN since I was in college, I don't really have any idea what restaurants are considered the cream of the crop in the MSP area.
I'm looking for places that strive in imagination and flavor, not necessarily the overly expensive steakhouse type restaurants. New American cuisine, any sort of ethnic cuisine (excluding sushi)....really ANYTHING. I was trying to think of a place to get dinner with some friends when I get in and I came up with nothing...because I've never been anywhere except bars and the occasional Chinese restaurant.
At any rate, thanks in advance for your help.
