Restaurant Wedding in Minneapolis?

I'd do Solera - they have a giant 3rd floor with windows overlooking downtown Mpls, a private terrace for mingling, and an entire rooftop area that has awesome views. Of course, their food is outstanding and from what I've experienced (I''ve held events there), the event staff makes everything perfect! They can easily hold 250 people, by the way.

MSP - What to eat between St Paul and Hudson?

Smalley's is open and people are indeed beating a path to it! Food is awesome whether you like your bbq with a lot or a little spice. Be sure to try the jerk ribs, the crab cakes, the mac-n-cheese, the fried green tomatoes, the sweet potato fries. . . oh I could go on and on. Thank goodness I live in Stillwater b/c I still have to make it through the specialty cocktail list! ;)

MSP: Updated Dinner Recommendations for Minneapolis?

La Belle Vie is the clear choice. Have a creative drink in the lounge first, then settle in for an elegant and outstanding dinner. Enjoy!
