Sioux Falls Recommendations

As someone from SF who travels a lot and depends on Chowhound for rec's, I think it is time to update our thread. Please chime in with your fav's and add any categories I have left off. I'll list my personal votes.

Fine Dining - Wild Sage (I have been disappointed in 'K'; Foley's has great food and love the atmosphere, but it is SO LOUD; Spezia has great service and atmosphere, but wouldn't really consider it "fine dining")

Mexican - Azteca, still a Taco John fan after all these years; (went to Mexican restaurant by Mr. Nifty once years ago and was underwhelmed...should I try it again?)

Italian - Spezia? Great food, but Italian seems a stretch

Burgers - Granite City, TC Referee?

Hidden Gem - Mama's Ladas (fab salsa - unusual, but great), Sanaas (I love the three spreads with pitas; don't miss the Saturday brunch), Nick's Gyro's, Touch of Europe (love the pork osso buco, stuffed salmon and walley)

Asian - Golden Bowl (Used to LOVE Dynasty's Vietnamese and Spring Rolls, but recently heard that they did very poorly on their health inspection...I have NOT been back); Green Curry with Chicken or Shrimp at Cocopalace is my all time favorite dish!

Bar scene/fun atmosphere - Bracco

Pizza - pathetically, Godfather's thin crust taco; Taste of the Big Apple has been hit and miss for me; when it has been good tho, it has been great! Maybe it is dependent upon what we have ordered

Offbeat Ethnic - (what kind of category is this anyway!?!?) Sushi Masa (see Hidden Gem)

Salads/Sandwiches - Red Rossa Salads, Mr. Goodscents; I have heard great things about Mix, but have never been

Breakfast - Original Pancake House; my husband loves Cracker Barrel

Sunday Brunch - Carnivale

Steak - Wild Sage

What have I missed?
