Seeking a twin city gem for party of 16

scottyni1 | Sep 15, 2011 05:52 PM

Hello Chowhounds. I am looking for recommendations for a lovely dining experience for a party of 16. The majority are in from out of town. My goals are great food (preferably local, see below), charming atmosphere (not a board-room setting), reliable service, and main courses in the $16-$30 range.

I am nearly devastated that Grand Cafe is closed on Mondays - the night of this event. Other restaurants I typically consider worthy of these goals are Tilia, In Season, Al Vento and Rinata, Trattoria Tosca, Cafe Le Vain, and the one I am leaning towards now - Cafe Vin.

As you may gather from that list I live in SW Mpls, but anything from Eden Prairie to Downtown Mpls is fair game for location.

Thanks for any advice.

Al Vento
5001 34th Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408

2451 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55405

In Season
5416 Penn Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55419
