Options for a birthday party venue in NE Minneapolis

The additional people won't be joining them until after the pedal pub. Although I would like to see 30 inebriated people balance on a pedal pub.

Agreed, Suzi's would be the perfect venue for the gathering.

Brunch in Burnsville?

Jensen's cafe is pretty good. It appears toddler/baby friendly. Be forewarned, there can be a wait on the weekends.

Cheeky Monkey's meatloaf sandwich is so so good. (cheddar, bacon, spicy mustard, giardiniera, english muffin toast ) Yummm.

Mango Thai's 'Pad Kee Mao' spicy noodle dish with chicken is delicious too.

Post tap-room tour dinner recommendation

For a post taproom tour dinner, I'd recommend Stanley's which is close by. The food is great and approachable for the inlaw's, although I'm not sure about the noise level. It has a great beer list also - not that you need one after the tap room hopping.

is origami still number one for sushi??

Yes, Origami is still the best place in town for sushi.

Although I'd be interested in hearing who the top contender is.

A Quest for Burger Greatness

I would recommend Low Brow ( 4244 Nicollet Ave) - the Highbrow burger - grass field MN beef with melted brie, carmelized onions, field greens, roasted garlic aioli. Yum!! The buns are delicious too.

/ Glad to hear you liked the NE Bulldog's burgers!

Thai Chicken Pizza

Pizza Luce has this:

Thai Pizza
A fresh and delicious pizza topped with red onion, snow peas, carrot, fresh jalapeño, peanuts, mozzarella and Thai greens (shredded basil, cilantro and lettuce tossed in our Thai sauce). Finished with your choice of chicken or tofu.

Not my cup of tea, but maybe you'll dig it.

Minneapolis this week-end

I also highly recommend Bar la Grassa. Definitely try the Gnocchi w/ Orange and Cauliflower!!!! and the Calamarata with Raw Tuna! ( might be tough to get a reservation, but they might be able to work you in early or late.)

Yes, try the Midtown Global Market for a bite since you're so close. Perhaps a taco at Sonora Grill or the 21 spice fried chicken and brussel sprouts (!) at the Left Handed Cook (it's not hot spicy, but still damn good ).

Birthday Sushi

I second the nomination for Origami in downtown Mpls. By far, my favorite sushi place in the twin cities. Good ambience. Incredible sushi. Not too loud.
I don't think they take reservations though, but I've never had to wait long for a table if at all.

Left-Handed Cook

I tried the 21 spice fried chicken and really liked it. It was delicious! …but not spicy like the name would suggest. There were three boneless white meat fillets. The chicken was moist and tender. The breading was so good and provided just the right amount of flavor. I would definitely get it again. It came with rice, a cute little side salad and one side ( try the brussel sprouts ).

Moscow Mule

I love a good Moscow Mule.

The Red Stag has a Moscow Mule ( or did at one time), but I believe they use Jamaican ginger beer which contains pineapple juice so they get points taken off. I can’t remember if they use a copper mug though.

I’d highly recommend Haute Dish’s Minnesota Mule! They use a copper mug and (non-Jamaican) ginger beer.

Be forewarned, lately some places hold on to your credit card while you’re using the copper mug because too many rapscallions have stolen the copper mugs which aren’t cheap.

Any other places around town that offer the Moscow Mule?

Another TC's sojourn begins.

I agree. The St Paul Lowertown Bulldog is waaay too loud. I can hardly hear people talk at the same table at times.
However, I do recommend the Northeast Bulldog and their Togarashi or Chimary Burger!

The Republic near 7 corners is great also. Excellent beer selection. Daily happy hour 4-6. I loved their brie wine reduction burger last time. The Republic's fish tacos were good too.

Downtown Minneapolis eats

I second Hell’s Kitchen. Love their sausage bread!! and lemon ricotta hotcakes! The rosti potatoes are good too. Also, their bloody mary’s are awesome. Some day I’ll save room for the porridge.

Fried Chicken - Twin Cities

Good question. No, I don’t recall any skin on the 21 spice fried chicken at the Left Handed Cook. There were three boneless white meat filets. Delicious, but to be precise it really doesn’t belong in the category of 'fried chicken on the bone with the skin still on'.

Fried Chicken - Twin Cities

I just tried the 21 spice fried chicken at the Left Handed Cook yesterday. It was delicious! The chicken was moist and tender. The breading was so good and provided just the right amount of enough heat and flavor. I would definitely get it again. It came with rice, a cute little side salad and one side ( try the brussel sprouts ).

Free cookie at Salty Tart all day today (June 6, 2012)

WildSwede, be sure to also stop at the Sonora Grill !! Love their incredible caramelos ( tacos ). I'd recommend the pork tacos, but I still need to try the skirt steak tacos and tilapia tacos.

I'd recommend the New Scenic Cafe just outside of Duluth. It's been a few years since I've been there, but I really liked it. http://www.sceniccafe.com/

Rack Shack Ribs

I was at the Rack Shack last week also – for lunch – and was disappointed as well. I had the quarter rack which had significantly more gristle this time. I thought the two previous times I visited the joint it was really good, so I’m hoping last week was just off week.

/ The side of mac and cheese was waaay overcooked.
