Top Ten Restaurants

January 18, 2013

As per request, I composed a list of my top ten favorite restaurants. I struggled with this because there are so many to pick from! There are new finds and old favorites. Here it is:

1. Salut Bar Americain in Edina and Saint Paul. I discovered this one a few years ago with some lovely Friends :)
2. Dragon City Cafe in Minneapolis. This quaint favorite is owned by my high school volleyball coach's family. They have the best won tons in town. No lie.
3. Olympia Cafe in Osseo. I have a weird obsession with gyros, and this place doesn't disappoint.
4. The Saint Paul Grill guessed it: Saint Paul. Though pricey, the mashed potatoes and oven roasted chicken are completely worth it.
5. Henry's Diner in Maple Grove. This diner is always bustling with regulars, but they could always use more business! I am a french toast fiend and Henry's has homemade bread. Need I say more?
6. The Cheesecake Factory in Edina (though I'm still hoping they'll put one in where Border's used to be in the Shoppes). The menu is quite daunting at first, but the plethora of options means trying something new with every visit. They have 38 different types of cheesecake to choose from. Can't go wrong with that.
7. Bread and Chocolate in Saint Paul. Their paninis (why does that look so weird?) are delicious and I can't even begin to tell you how yummy their iced ginger cookies or chocolate croissants are!
8. California Pizza Kitchen in Maple Grove. An oldie, but a goodie. I have a special place in my heart for this restaurant.
9. Pracna on Saint Anthony Main, or really anything on Saint Anthony Main for that matter. It's so cute over there and there's the skyline and the stone arch bridge.
10. Loring Pasta Bar in Minneapolis. My first time there was in January when they still had twinkle lights up (and you know how I feel about twinkle lights) so naturally it was love at first sight. The atmosphere is wonderful, it feels like you're in a fairy forest. Plus they have live music and dancing most nights!
