The Nicklow brothers, veterans of the Minneapolis dining scene, own and operate Santorini Taverna and Grill, where diners salivate over a slate of Mediterranean delicacies during brunch, lunch, and dinner. On weekends, guests boogie to the strains of live entertainment in the forms of bands and DJs. Dual fireplaces keep shoulders toasty during winter months, and during agreeable weather, diners can feast outdoors on a large deck and patio perfect for viewing the seasonal migration patterns of commercial air balloons. With a whole brigade of restaurants under his belt and an impressive backstory that includes coming to this country with $3 in his pocket, brother Tony Nicklow was recently inducted into the Minnesota Restaurant Association Hall of Fame, according to CBS Minnesota. He aims to treat every diner with warmth, as if they're a friend, which is why he flings his opponent's favorite foods only during food fights.
