Welcome to your independent restaurant guide for the great city of Minneapolis. Minneapolis has a number of great neighborhoods for memorable & scenic fine dining.
Minneapolis is one of the 50 largest cities in the U.S. Originally a hub for timber and flour mills, Minneapolis became a major destination for European immigrants—particularly for Germans and Scandinavians—in both the 19th and 20th centuries. Eventually, Minneapolis became strong in commerce, finance, and has a thriving performance arts scene. Much of this rich history has been preserved and is evident as visitors and residents visit this great midwest city’s beautifully preserved and restored pubs
