I was surprised that on a Thursday night, at a hotel, that there weren’t more diners. I think they should reconfigure the room so that it is a more intimate dining experience. The maitre-d also had to wait tables. Delicious food, but the server kept forgetting requests. We’ll keep exploring other restaurants. PLUS items we saw advertised were not available in this Westin restaurant. If you’re looking for nostalgia in the old F & M Bank bldg’s interior, just come in and look (or drink at the well-staffed bar) but eat elsewhere. More

Contemporary Italian | Downtown / North Loop, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

My boyfriend and I went during HH on a Friday around 5:00pm. It was completely dead, no one was there. We sat at a table in the bar area so that we could choose from the HH menu. My boyfriend ordered a beer. I ordered the Days of My Youth drink and I did not like it at all. It was a beautiful drink but it was super smokey, tasted like a bon fire. I could see how someone would like it but I didn’t! I mentioned that I wanted a glass of wine after tasting the cocktail and our waitress was super accommodating and removed the cost of the drink as well as my glass of wine for the inconvenience. Great and unexpected service! For food we ordered two things off the HH menu and split each, it was more than enough. We ordered a pizza: Tre Formaggi. It was absolutely delicious. It had apples on it and a white cream sauce. Loved it. We also ordered a pasta: Fettuccini Carbonara. I loved this as well, my boyfriend wasn’t as impressed. It comes with an egg yolk on it, peas, and super salty meat. I thought it was lovely, the homemade pasta was so good. I would highly recommend going to the restaurant. We’re excited to go back and try new things! Apparently they have unlimited Bloody Mary and mimosa bar on Saturday’s for brunch. I would love to go back for that. More

I loved that there was a kids buffet but by 145 the food seemed to have been sitting out for awhile and not as fresh (especially the burgers/waffles). Otherwise we loved the food, loved the atmosphere and was a great place to go with kids on Mothers day. More

Hyderbad Indian GrillHyderbad Indian Grill
$$$$
Indian | Bloomington, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

The Hyderabad is all about slow-cooking, known as dum in India, much of which is done in the tandoor.. This brings out amazing flavours and textures, which when combined with the rich, perfumed flavours from the spices create one of the best cuisines in the world and it is the home of korma and biryani. Everything is cooked over charcoal not just the kebabs, but all Hyderabadi dishes. The food isn't as showy as cuisines found in other parts of India the biryani, for example, looks quite plain, but the texture and taste is just incredible.

This slow cooking helps to meld flavours together to create something totally unique, but it's the rich, indulgent spices that really set Hyderabadi cuisine apart. Hyderabadi cuisine is very rich, with lots of nuts, cream and ghee, but in the olden days that was fine because people did a lot of physical work, Now it should be regarded as a treat; even though it might look simple, the second you taste it you will realise just how special it is.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.
