Hi all, MSP Chowhounds,
I've read the threads relating to St Louis Park, Golden Valley, and all other threads regarding eats in the western suburbs. Even with all that information, I could use your help.
I pick up my uncle from Courage Center on Wednesdays and take him out to lunch. I have ideas of where to go, I need more, to add variety. There are a few parameters I need to add to my info request.
While western burbs would be preferable, I am willing to drive a reasonable distance (< 10 miles, < 5 would be better). The area should cover between Courage Center in Golden Valley and the environs of his house near 494 and Minnetonks Blvd.
The place needs to be handicap accessible.
Low noise level is preferable, but we are talking about lunch, so it's understandable if that can't be covered.
No Indian or Chinese. While I constantly crave both, uncle already gets Chinese and leftovers once a week and does not like Indian food.
If there is one vegetarian selection for me, so much the better. I'm willing to do fries and a side salad if not, but I'm thinking Famous Daves and Uncle Frankys are out of the running.
We went to Santorini last week and had a blast. I shared my saganaki and my uncle's a changed man. His chicken sandwich was ok, though really difficult to eat due to its monstrous size. My Greek salad was probably the best Greek salad I've ever had. The salad had a lot of pepperoncini, and though overly dressed, I do like that dressing, so it was great.
I also found out that Santorini should be in its current location at least until August 2008.
Your anticipated help in expanding our horizons beyond Chammps (and Santorini) is greatly appreciated.
