MSP: Excelsior & Grand lunchtime chow

Chris Mitra | Oct 1, 2006 04:08 PM

We recently moved offices, and are now near Excelsior & Grand. I have not spent a lot of time around that neck of the woods. Can anyone recommend any lunchtime favorites in the neighborhood?

My current favorite would be to drive down France to Linden Hills and go to Turtle Bread or Great Harvest. Of course there is also Punch and the various Uptown options if we drive a bit. But I'm wondering about the immediate area -- I've not yet been to Yum, the deli near it, or anything in Excelsior & Grand. (Not totally true -- we went to Brix to get some wine after our office move, but did not try the chow.)

I noticed a Bellaria Bakery about to open across from Trader Joe's, but am not sure if that will be a bakery pure-play, or if it will have lunch options.

Btw, does anyone know if this Brix is related to the somewhat famous one in Napa?
