This area of St. Paul has had a rough few years, but restaurateurs are looking to cast it into a more positive light. There’s Ward 6, a neighborhood pub that’s mastered the fine line between being both adult- and kid-friendly, Cook St. Paul, which serves up American-style diner food as well as a smattering of Korean dishes, and Tongue in Cheek, offering accessible fine dining, all of which have people flocking to St. Paul’s East Side. If you find the food to be so good you want to move in, there’s affordable commercial and residential space that is likely to become more and more attractive to artists and entrepreneurs in the coming years.
