Restaurant Alma $$$
Restaurant Alma is one of the best restaurants in the Twin Cities and they arguable have one of the best wine lists as well. The food is completely non-pretentious, with generous portions and recognizable ingredients. On the surface, the food seems so wonderfully simplistic, but the flavors can be complex and unique. It's the perfect date or special occasion spot, and I recommend always doing the 3 course offering for $62. You're able to pick your 3 courses, and you can do different courses than others at the table - which allows for sampling. The restaurant has a more casual all-day café attached that also serves dinner.
