American | Downtown / Loring Park, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

Good food and friendly server. The only negative is that headlights from cars pulling into the drive at the hotel shine directly into your eyes because the eating area is below grade. Lowering the window coverings might help but perhaps another kind of filter is needed. Very distracting for the person getting the light in their eyes and their guest, who sees lights constantly going across the other person’s face. More

Great service. Great cocktails. Wine list was a little more expensive than expected ($30 bottle retail cost $69). Food was delicious. Only downfall was we were seated in a tiny room at a tiny table. Was Valentine's weekend so could be why. More

Steak | Lakeville, Twin Cities / Southern Suburbs

I have dined at Porterhouse many times over the years. The service is always excellent, attentive but not hovering. The food is really good with an extensive wine list and fun drink list. I enjoy the ambiance, it's kind of "supper club" like, but with a rather small intimate dining space. The prices are on the high end, but not out of line with other comparable restaurants. Overall, this is one of the top dining locations in the southern suburbs - probably my top "go to" restaurants for special occasions. More

Discover The Twin Cities

Yes—a frigid Minneapolis winter evokes stews and soups and hearty, gut-warming fare, but the food scene in this formerly industrial city has gained steam in recent years, with a burgeoning community of excellent chefs, craft coffee and beer, and Nordic style to accompany the culinary traditions of the region’s immigrant community. You’ll find lefse—a traditional Norwegian flatbread made with flour, potatoes, milk, and cream, akin to a latke of a sort—creatively topped and, while meat is central (this is the midwest, after all), river fish and ingredients foraged from surrounding wooded areas lend diversity to the new Minneapolis menus. A number of new but now iconic restaurants have set the tone for how the twin cities’ keep up with the trends, though the two are more fraternal than identical these days, St. Paul taking a slightly more classic, mom and pop shop vibe.
