About this Business

From Our Editors

A large neon arrow points the way into Thom Pham’s Wondrous Azian Kitchen, where, as chef and owner Thom Pham puts it, “classic French techniques bring together Azian spice and Minnesota nice.” Inspired by French settlers’ impact on Southeast Asian cuisine, the eatery’s menu of traditional Japanese and Chinese recipes hobnobs with European preparations such as tartar and carpaccio. Dishes sizzled atop woks and Korean barbecue touch down amid colorful dragon murals and gilded floral artwork in the many dining rooms, and a fully stocked bar supplies signature cocktails and wine. Sippers can also slip into cherry-red booths in the adjoining Caterpillar Lounge, lit by flower-like hanging lights. On weekends, an all-you-can-enjoy dim sum brunch loads tables with a multiplicity of small plates, ideal fodder for a shared meal or family juggling act.

Minneapolis Restaurant Guide

Minneapolis stands as one of the great Cosmopolitan centers of the Northwest. Restaurants in Minneapolis could rival any that famed “Second City” Chicago serves up. Like any big city, Minneapolis has produced some characters who have opened restaurants that offer unique and fun dining experiences and that represent the local flair. Visitors dining in Minneapolis restaurants won’t want for anything of good value and good quality when they visit this half of the famous “Twin City.”

At the top of the unique Minneapolis eating list is Elsie’s Restaurant Bar and Bowl. This famed spot lets one nosh on some classic fare while rolling some strikes down on the lanes. There are some great Americana snacks like mac-and-cheese wedges and waffle fries that receive rave reviews and make for perfect snack food between frames. And for more serious eats, Elsie serves up, among other things, 10 and 18-ounce portions of slow-roasted prime rib and maple-glazed pork chops. Apps start at $5 to $9, and mains go from $11 to $23. Head there Sunday to Thursday for $9 unlimited bowling night.

Second to none for pizza in Minneapolis is Broadway Pizza. They’ve been making pies in Minneapolis for about 50 years, perfecting the art along the way. Most head down for the thin crust, but deep-dish is on tap as well. Their Tuesdays “cheap date night” is a great value. Twenty bucks gets an appetizer, a two-topping pizza, and their famous deep-dish cookie topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and a cherry. One can order online first, and get a pie that's steaming-hot and ready to eat .

Dining in Minneapolis is unique, fun, and of course, delicious.  One  doesn't need to go five-star establishments to get good eats and ambience. For those seeking something local and unpretentious in Minneapolis, a good restaurant is not hard to find.
