Fig + Farro is a vegan restaurant in Uptown. The interior is gorgeous – definitely a place I’d love to hang out on a sunny afternoon. I’ve been here three times now, and each time it gets better and better. I think their staff is perfecting how the food is cooked and presented, and you … Continue reading "Fig + Farro"
It took me awhile to write my review of Grand Café because I couldn’t come up with the words to describe how incredible this place is. Everything about it. The interior design and furniture, the mismatched antique dishes and silverware, the gorgeous coupe glasses for champagne, the food, oh my the food. They are open … Continue reading "Grand Cafe"

The inside is fabulous too, with high ceilings, a gorgeous chandelier, and comfy leather couches. There are food trucks … Continue reading "Tattersall Distilling"
St. Genevieve has tall windows letting in lots of sunlight, tiled floor with a gorgeous bar, and always seems to be filled with attractive humans sipping champagne. It’s definitely not cheap, but the place is great for a date or a dinner when your parents are in town (and are paying!) I have been here … Continue reading "St. Genevieve"
Spoon and Stable is just incredible. The high ceilings, marble, stainless steel, and beautiful wine cellar make the atmosphere one of the best in the Twin Cities. Their bar is great for after-work cocktails, and it has first-come-first-serve seating (at the bar and the tables surrounding.) It’s pretty difficult to get reservations, but they serve … Continue reading "Spoon and Stable"
