Where is a fancy but affordable restaurant in the heart of Minneapolis?
Downtown Minneapolis has so many great options for dinner, especially if you're looking for a delicious meal that doesn't break the bank. I recommend checking out Bar La Grassa in the North Loop, where you can find well-priced starters as well as half and full portions of swoon-worthy pastas. Monello also serves different sizes of pasta dishes and more than half a dozen crudo plates, plus my favorite bar is right below it (Constantine). On the south end of downtown is Loring Park, a beautiful neighborhood home to Cafe & Bar Lurcat—make reservations for Sunday Date Night and get a three-course meal for two for only $50.
There are too many options to choose just a few places with good food and beer, but here are some suggestions.
