St. Paul Grill
High-rollers can sip $750-a-pour, circa-1949 Macallan Scotch at this white-tablecloth hotel bar/grill. Located in downtown's century-old St. Paul Hotel overlooking Rice Park, the restaurant has a classic American menu that's heavy on prime steaks and thick-cut chops. Starters include an extra-thick slice of Nueske's bacon and creamy, Minnesota wild-rice soup, while entrées include pan-fried local walleye dusted with almond flour and drizzled with pecan Frangelico-butter sauce. An extensive selection of single malt Scotch, Irish whiskey, armagnac, and cognac beef up the wine, beer and cocktail list.
