What are my favorite restaurants?
Tough question but here are a few on my list:
112 Eatery – still my favorite place in the Cities. I just love everything about this place, from the food, the service, and laid back atmosphere. Try the 112 cheeseburger, you won’t regret it.
Bar LaGrassa – Same owners as 112 Eatery. If you love Italian food, then this should be on your list. Both times I have been here I have ordered the Soft Eggs and Lobster Bruschetta. Delicious!
Brasa – Casual, premium rotisserie place with a southern flare. They have a location in Minneapolis and St Paul. Good place to take the kids. Always a good meal.
Victor’s Café – Cuban café in Uptown. The wait is long especially in the summer, but it is worth it. My go to place for breakfast. Try the Cuban scrambler, served with the sweet plantains. Enjoy that with the Cuban toast and the guava jam. For the last few years, this has been my Father’s day meal. I am always happy.
The Nook – If I want a Juicy Lucy burger, I come here. I just love this place. The Paul Molitor is what I usually get, the juicy nooky stuffed with pepper cheese. You can’t go wrong with that.
