Restaurants in Minneapolis

While the uninformed visitor might assume the Twin Cities have nothing to offer outside of stodgy Midwestern fare, but the Minneapolis restaurants scene is incredibly diverse. Between the city’s growing regional influence and an influx of immigrant communities, there’s more going on here than ever. Since an exhaustive list of the best restaurants in Minneapolis would go on for pages and pages, we’ll stick to just a couple of our favorites:

One of the most talked about contemporary restaurants in Minneapolis, 112 Eatery offers an eclectic array of dishes, all presented with a flair not typically associated with the Midwest. Executive chef/owner Isaac Becker won a coveted James Beard Award for his efforts here, and fans of both continental dining and the farm-to-table movement will find plenty to rave about.

For diners looking for an upscale but thoroughly American entry on the Minneapolis restaurants list, look no further than Restaurant Alma. Executive chef Alexander Roberts and his team focus on Midwestern-inspired fare that changes seasonally, working with the best locally sourced meat and produce to create a thoroughly unique dining experience. For game enthusiasts, Restaurant Alma is a must-visit!
