Best restaurants and bars
 
I thought it wouldn't hurt to start a Restaurant and bars thread.

Where is everyone eating and drinking?

Go.

Because I live near it, I'm a big fan of the restaurants on 48th and Chicago:

- Town Hall Tap: Just opened, tons of great brew and it seems like the food menu is pretty good too

- Bagu Sushi: Not the best sushi in town, but not the worst, and has a good happy hour Sundays-Wednesdays

- Pumphouse Creamery: Awesome local and organic ice cream

- Pizza Biga: Good woodfired za

If you're north of the cities, check out Moe's on County 10. The weekly specials are always worth trying.

You can't have a list about great places to eat in the greater metro without mentioning Lion's Tap in Eden Prairie - "World Famous Burgers!"

Favs in the Twin Cities:
Happy Gnome

Easily the best restraunt in MPLS is Fogo De Chao. I would put chino Latino as a close second. For Burgers it would have to be Burger Jones in Uptown or the Lions Tap.

Fogo De Chao is cool and all...but it is a national chain.

How has nobody mentioned Matt's Bar yet?!? The REAL home of the Juicy Lucy!

But it's also in MPLS and this is the Best Restraunts and Bars thread in the MPLS forum... IJS.

Places I go
 
In Saint Paul, it's the Strip Club Meat and Fish, Yarusso Brothers, Cossetta's, Cheeky Monkey, Meritage, Sweeney's, The Happy Gnome, The Muddy Pig, Ristorante Luca and The Tea House.

In Minneapolis, it's Al's Breakfast, The Modern, The Town Hall, Grumpy's, La Belle Vie, Solera, Sea Change, The Sample Room and Camdi.

Outside the cities, it's Barley John's and Smalley's.

No worries, not trying to discredit it. I know just, for me and people like me, if they're going to visit a city, they want to try some of the local flavor is all. FDC is certainly good stuff.

The best burger in the Twin Cities is at the Shortstop in Coon Rapids. Their mushroom cheeseburger has a small can of shrooms on it.

JoshHops 12-04-2010 01:00 PM

Don't know if anybody mentioned this one, but Barley John's Brew Pub in New Brighton has amazing food and excellent beers. Not a big fan of their stockyard Ips but the smoked old 8 porter is very fine.

I've only been to Minnesota once but I could eat Jucy Lucy's at Matt's Bar for breakfast lunch and dinner. mmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

TheBrewinator 12-21-2010 02:12 PM

Either Matts bar or the 5-8 club both have fantastic juicy lucys. One of my personal favorites is Rock Bottom (even though its a chain), Bryon makes some fantastic beer and the food is good too.

coolbreezz 12-21-2010 07:31 PM

ymmmm this is making me hungry :)

bsherck 01-21-2011 12:16 PM

Yum!
 
Drinking: Any beer from Cold Springs Brewery
Food: Been to the Angry Trout anyone?

splash56 01-25-2011 10:44 AM

The Bergan Bar in Bergan, mn. between Windom and Jackson has the best steaks in the state!

awschucks 01-27-2011 02:09 AM

Great place
 
Tara's hideaway in Stilllwater. Awesome food.

Krew400 01-27-2011 06:36 PM

Betty's Pies in Two Harbors

ImportGuyR34 02-21-2011 03:15 PM

For pizza definitely Broadway Pizza. The Eagles Nest in Robbinsdale is good bar/ broadway pizza.

The 5-8 Club, home of the Juicy Lucy.
Manny's. JD Hoiyts? Not sure if that's how you spell it.
Glockenspiel is a good German restaurant.

fillerup 02-23-2011 12:31 PM

Well being from St. Paul I like the locals.

Breakfast - Day By Day Cafe. Omlets
Lunch - Ogarra's, Ruben Sandwitch and a pint of Guinness
Dinner - Mancini's, Fillet and Lobster

Those are my top picks.

ImportGuyR34 02-23-2011 01:12 PM

Forgot about Breakfast, I would recommend Fat Nat's for that. BEST breakfast place around. One in Brooklyn Park and one in Golden Valley.
