I am going to be in St Paul the first few weeks of next year. I used to live there and will be revisiting some old haunts (but it's a while since I lived there and so much will have changed).
Could I ask for some local recommendations.
Firstly, is there anything much that's worthwhile that is Skyway accessible (or walkable from downtown) these days? I assume the system has expanded considerably since the 80's when there wasn't much going on at night really.
I like all kinds of food, but particularly European ethnic, unpretentious French, good regional Italian, and one-of-a-kind and/or long-established places (like Mama's Pizza, or Gasthaus Bavarian Hunter for example). I am also fond of authentic Cantonese or other authentic Chinese.
A place from olden days I never tried was Mancini's. It sounds a bit like St Paul version of Johnny's Cafe in Omaha (which I like).
But I will try anything. Since I generally dine alone, I also enjoy places with good people-watching.
Am particularly interested in the East side of the Metroplex though.
Thanks a lot. It's appreciated. I will pick up a Twin Cities Restaurant Guide once I get there no doubt.
