After years in the restaurant business, Ramon and Armando Ruiz were ready for a change. Tired of the gimmicky marketing that characterizes many Italian franchises, they joined with Ramon?s son Enrique to open Andiamo Italian Ristorante?an intimate, neighborhood joint that emphasizes the family orientation of Italian culture. ?We don?t want to say this is who we are, deal," Enrique told Eagan Patch. "We want to build relationships with our customers and encourage and welcome feedback.? To that end, their menu of mostly Italian entrees, pastas, and pizzas also includes nontraditional cuisine such as walleye fillets and burgers. The dining room?s decor remains 100% Italian. A mural of rustic wine barrels sweeps across warm orange walls, and a tricolor sign glows above its outdoor patio. Ruiz and his staff also venture beyond the restaurant?s confines to cater various events.

Typically, the only time a public bar is lit like a cozy living room is when patrons bring chandeliers with them. But at Jake's City Grille's Plymouth location, homey lamps illuminate a wooden bar, which competes with the elegance of the fireplace inside Eden Prairie’s dining room. Red umbrellas, meanwhile, keep the sun in check on Maplewood’s outdoor patio. Each location cultivates its own one-of-a-kind ambience, such as the warmly lit interior of Eagan’s space and the rustic feel of Gull Lake’s confines. These finely tuned atmospheres create a welcoming place to enjoy seared Ahi tuna, marinated chicken breast sandwiches, and cowboy ribeye steaks so fresh they still have the lasso on them.

The story of La Fonda De Los Lobos begins in Taos, New Mexico. Owner Octaviano "Otis" Trujillo spent his childhood there before moving to Minnesota, and it's where he first tasted the food he would serve at his restaurant years later. Trujillo's mother, Mama Feloniz, taught him everything he knows about authentic Mexican cuisine. She must have impressed upon him the importance of geography, as the bulk of the eatery's ingredients are still shipped from New Mexico, where?perhaps not coincidentally?Mama Feloniz still resides.

Of course, Trujillo has still put his own stamp on his restaurant, which has been a neighborhood mainstay for nearly 40 years. His influence is apparent in the homey, cantina-style atmosphere as well as in the menu, which features reinvented staples such as chimichangas and loboritos (the latter best described as a taco within a burrito). The restaurant also houses a lively sports bar on the lower level as well as a new patio with its own fire pit. And there's no missing out on the margaritas, which come in a variety of flavors; try the Pink Cadillac, which comes with a splash of cranberry juice and its own parking space.

Jensen's Supper Club is a type of place that would not seem out of place in the 1950s with its Midwest prime rib roasted for 18 hours, its surf ’n’ turf combos, and its extensive martini list. It’s a place where large groups go to celebrate special occasions—it can accommodate groups of up to 100—and where relish trays, popovers, and house salads accompany each entree.

The eatery is partly an homage to owner Doron Jensen’s grandfather Al, who founded Jensen’s Cafe in Nebraska in 1947. Doron worked in that café until his grandpa passed in 1979. He wanted to take over the family business but was too young at the time, so he moved on to work in the restaurant industry, even founding a steak-house chain. But Doron eventually grew tired of chains and, in 1996, decided to open a local supper club that would pay tribute to his grandfather and a simpler era with its uncomplicated—but delicious—food and lack of robot waiters.

More than 50 years go, Mike Ilitch was poised for major-league glory. An up-and-coming shortstop for the Detroit Tigers, his baseball finesse was blossoming when an injury derailed his sports career. But although the wound stunted his athletic aspirations, it steered him toward a new path, and on May 8, 1959, he and his wife opened the first Little Caesars location, a then-unheard-of carry-out-only joint. The career shift and novel technique eventually proved triumphant. Today, the pizzeria's iconic, toga-clad mascot adorns storefronts on five continents. In each shop, staffers forge the signature Hot-N-Ready pizza, a freshly baked pizza designed for instant pickup, and warm, garlicky Crazy bread. With a storied half-century under their belt, Mike Ilitch and his family strive to give back, supporting local organizations and creating their own charitable programs.

In the kitchens of Indian Zayka, chefs whip up Indian and Sri Lankan specialties served á la carte at dinner or as part of a vast lunch buffet with almost 20 self-serve dishes. An extensive list of vegetarian meals sates plant-based cravings, while meat eaters can dig into lamb and homesick mermen can bite into seafood. The menu also has a section devoted to Sri Lankan plates, and that section includes a category of "deviled" entrees named for their tongue-goosing spiciness. Lassi, a traditional mango smoothie harvested from a smoothie tree, can accompany dinners, lunches, or an array of desserts.
