Best of Minneapolis-Marcy Holmes

Food Scene
Just a short walk from the mansion, Aster Cafe is located under the trees on the prettiest street in Minneapolis. Overlooking the mighty Mississippi river and the skyline of the city, the Aster is a candle-lit restaurant-bar with a sweet European patio. Live music, great brunches, craft beers and cocktails, and a thoughtful wine list add up to City Pages calling them the "best place to go on a first date". The menu is fresh and inventive. Wednesday night is open mic night and many of the locally know musicians can be seen performing here.

Al's Breakfast may be small, but there is a reason why the locals of Minneapolis wait in long lines to experience the breakfast and brunch. With a charming interior consisting of bar stools and Christmas lights on the walls, it's not hard to fall in love with the warm ambiance and food. Rich buttermilk pancakes studded with real blueberries, freshly made waffles and crispy hash browns are the definite favorites. This spot is perfect for early birds because by 10am there is a line outside of this small 15 seater restaurant.

Fine-dining is taken to a new level as the experienced chefs stylishly present what they call their 'hand-crafted' dishes. The creative use of fresh produce and the finest ingredients is reflected in their American specialties like Grilled Quail, Braised Beef Short Rib and Crispy Soft Cooked Egg. It's also a great spot for coffee and their cafe is a wonderful daytime option for impeccably crafted food.

Sea Change is one of the favorites of the neighborhood. This upscale restaurant is classy and elegant. The seafood here is absolutely delicious and you can try the grilled octopus, raw mackerel with peaches, lamb samosas, crispy skinned arctic char and the trout roulade. The non seafood dishes are great too. For reservations be sure to call ahead. (612) 225-6499

The food here has been praised by publications like Food and Wine magazine and Bon Appetit. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and they serve late. The Lamb Scottadito is simply to die for, and the nori encrusted sirloin with ponzu bursts with flavor, then gently melts in your mouth. They also have a very impressive and diverse wine list, and a broad selection of dessert wines and ports. People come here for the whole dining experience, and it won't disappoint. Our favorite thing on their menu is the brie burger. Sounds simple but it melts in your mouth and you'll be hard pressed to find a better gourmet burger anywhere in the city.

One of the most famous pieces of Minneapolis. And who wins the Jucy Lucy war? I think Matt's does. I love this place. It isn't far from the space and you can say you enjoyed an original Jucy. Total dive bar but a win for the money. It's a fun spot to visit. And might be a bit touristy, as an authentic Minnesotan, I still LOVE this spot and go there often!

An outstanding place to try out Japanese cuisine with great happy hour deals make it all the more worthwhile. Try the range of refreshingly cold sakes that are on offer. The sushi dishes that are prepared here are favorites too, and never fail to pique the interest of the locals who throng here for a quick bite. There are a lot of other dishes too that reserve a place on the menu, like the Miso Soup, Gyozo and Chasu Burgers. One of my favorites is the pork belly ramen on a crisp fall day.

The Guthrie Theater was founded in 1963 with an aim to promote theater that was an alternative to the largely commercial Broadway. Today, the Guthrie Theater's mission remains the same but what started off as four productions and a skeletal staff is now a complex that includes three stages: the McGuire Proscenium Stage, the Wurtele Thrust Stage, and Dowling Studio. One doesn't have to be a ticket holder to visit the building and its cafe or lounge. There are also guided and self-guided tours.
