Parka--Never again and worried

I was very unhappy the two times I went to Parka. Poor service and less than great food=two strikes you're out!

Cupcake and Mason Jar In Eagan

My husband and I went just last night! We drove by and noticed it had opened. We were happy but not thrilled... yet.

Tons of potential and a really good menu (pot pies, salads, sandwiches, pizza and flatbreads). Good beer list.

More than a few new restaurant issues but we will be back. (Beer pour about 1/3 empty, wrong flatbread delivered, some menu items not available yet.) We live in Eagan and have high hopes... it is hard to convince my husband to drive into Mpls or St. Paul for dinner on weeknights! :)

St. Paul Breakfast / Brunch Places

Heartland food was delicious. The bartender tried to make me feel stupid for ordering iced tea. ".We only serve local" then he proceeded to offer fresh squeezed Orange juice! It was funny but he didn't laugh.

Thanks so much to both of you! Chicago is lucky to have you!

We are staying at the one on the South Loop. We are taking the train down and won't have a car. I'm thinking Orange for breakfast one day??

Hello...

My family and i are coming to town for the WSox-Twins series. We are staying at the Holiday Inn Downtown. I would love some suggestions for breakfast and lunch near the hotel and Pier, and good ideas for dinner on the way to the "other" stadium.

Thanks!
