MSP:Good place to take group of non-CH relatives?

Mellu | Sep 9, 2007 07:50 PM

I originally invited a group of 6 relatives over for dinner this weekend. Somewhere in the midst of planning the dinner, my husband and I threw in the towel, and decided we'd like to surprise them with a trip out to dinner somewhere instead.

*said relatives are all very non-Chowhound types - i.e., all living in far outer suburbs they rarely leave, who think Papa John's is the best pizza and Culver's serves the best burger. However, I think they will be willing to try new things (and we will be plying them with alcohol at our place beforehand).

*this is a special occasion: we're moving away and we rarely have them to dinner "in the city," and would like to make this like a surprise adventure experience for them.

*we're ready to spend some money, but within some reason.

*it will be a party of 8 adults.

*we will want to stay in the inner city, Minneapolis or St. Paul is OK!

*no Chino Latino or Psycho Suzi's, please and thank you.

We originally thought of carting the group to the Midtown Global Market for a big ol' ethnic picnic, but we wouldn't get there until around 8PM - when most places there close.

We'd love to take 'em to a sushi joint for a big feast......but OMG $$$$$$!!!!

Any suggestions appreciated!
