One of the best perks of living in Minneapolis is having so many amazing restaurants within reach. Check out these top 6 restaurants every Minneapolis foodie should have on their list:

  1. Revival
    4257 Nicollet Avenue

    Revival serves Southern comfort food in a nice and cozy atmosphere. It is a great place to share a meal with friends and family. The menu is a mix of Southern favorites and new takes on classic dishes. Their delicious flavors and generous portions are sure to satisfy diners and keep them coming back for more.

    Order their classic Southern-style fried chicken dredged in buttermilk and seasoned flour. For those who like it spicy, Revival’s fried bird comes in Tennessee Hot, made with a host of spices and cayenne pepper. There’s also Poultrygeist cooked with the notorious ghost chile which is 10 times hotter than habanero.

    Spoon and Stable is the product of James Beard award winner and Minneapolis native Chef Gavin Kaysen. The cuisine is inspired by the local culture and French culinary techniques.

  3. Corner Table
    4573 Nicollet Avenue

    Corner Table offers one of the best dining experiences in the Twin Cities. Here, low country cuisine meets French techniques. What exactly does this mean? It means that their dishes are delicate yet soulful and made with the freshest locally sourced seasonal ingredients.

    They have a shifting prix fixe menu where you can pick one dish from three categories and a “feed the sh*t out of me & make it nice” option that includes great wine pairings. The simple yet elegant interior of the restaurant makes it perfect for any occasion.

  4. Hai Hai
    2121 University Avenue

    Hai Hai brings Southeast Asian street food to Minneapolis. As soon as you step inside, you’re greeted with vibrant blues and greens that set a lively atmosphere. And the wonderful smell of exotic Eastern spices and herbs waft from every dish they serve.

    Try their laksa shrimp and grits, pork ribs adobo, Cambodian pork dip and crudité, Hanoi sticky rice or the crispy Vietnamese crepe. They also have an array of drinks that include cocktails, slushies, mocktails, beer, and a great selection of wines.

  5. Young Joni

    An award-winning Minneapolis restaurant, Young Joni serves delicious pizzas and incredible cocktails.
