In a limestone building constructed in 1893, Nicollet Island Inn welcomes visitors with vintage artifacts, modern amenities, and a restaurant that won City Pages’ Best Brunch award in 2011 and a Best Romantic Restaurants award from City’s Best in 2010. Stained-glass windows and a glass-enclosed elevator lend the inn an Old-World charm, while the boutique queen rooms’ plasma-screen TVs provide a taste of modernity. Elsewhere, the restaurant’s historical dining room provides a romantic panorama of the Mississippi River, an ideal backdrop for sweethearts, bird watchers, and researchers tracking migratory Loch Ness monsters.
Nicollet Island Inn and its executive chef, Adam Droski, top tables with five- and seven-course meals of award-winning international haute cuisine. Beef tenderloin vies with duck confit for tongues’ attentions before slices of key-lime cheesecake infuse palates with velvety tartness. Wines from South Africa, France, Austria, and other locales supplement meals.

About Nicollet Island Inn Bar Restaurant and Hotel
If the limestone walls of the Nicollet Island Inn Restaurant could talk, they would have riveting things to say. They would relate recent memories of romantic weddings and elegant special occasions, filled with the popping of champagne corks, laughter bouncing off the water from an outdoor patio and garden, and soft music wafting from the piano lounge. But the inn's more distant past is what distinguishes its true character; the building is one of the few that survived an island-wide fire soon after its construction in 1893. The site was rehabilitated in the early 80's. Double-hung windows have transformed the industrial exterior with welcoming turquoise awnings, and the old loading dock was glassed in to create a dining room with scenic views of the Mississippi River.
Though steeped in historical charm—including hand-carved woodwork and stained-glass windows—the inn appeals to the modern traveler with world-class amenities such as Pharmacopia organic bath products and plasma TVs.
