70th Birthday party

Anywhere in the metro area, price not a concern, and no restrictions.

Thanks

70th Birthday party

Looking for good restaurants to have a 70th birthday party for my mom. We would be a group of 12-20. Not a steak place. Maybe somewhere we can have our own little room. Any ideas? Party is late May.

Thanks

Need fun place to celebrate with the kids

Looking for a fun / interesting place to bring the kids (ages 14, 11, & 9) to celebrate good report cards. In the past we’ve gone to Wasabi for teppanyaki, Mancini’s for steak, and Ngon for Pho.

Thanks

Favorite restaurants from the past

Was the York Steak house the place where you slid your tray down the line cafeteria style and ordered while in line?

Au Cheval

Spouse and I arrive in Chicago around 8:45pm this Friday. If we get to the restaurant by 9pm, what wait time should we expect?

Downtown Eats for Saturday night

I noticed Cafe Maude has 2 locations. Is one any better than the other?

Robbinsdale and Travail. Updates.

I’ve been to Travail a handful of times and loved it every time. What I have noticed are the chefs seem much more rushed and have less time to explain what’s on the plate. My first few times the chef was very precise about what he/she was serving and pointed out each element of the dish in great detail. Lately, the chef puts the food down, does a hurried explanation, then off to the next table. Perhaps a smaller place will reign in the craziness and give the chef’s back the time to spend with the clientele. That’s my hope, anyway.

Best Corned Beef to Buy

Lunds (their brand). A little more expensive but well worth it.

East Metro

Received the following an email from a friend. Any ideas?

"I have someone retiring who likes foodie places. Could you give me an east metro place to buy a gift certificate for her."

Do you infuse whiskey or bourbon?

Had a drink at a restaurant called a maple manhattan. Made up of bacon infused Jameson, bitters, and a dash of maple syrup - garnished with an orange slice. While not terrible, it would make a good holiday drink for those who like sweeter whiskey drinks. Not to mention it's a good conversation topic...

Templeton Rye

Is it worth the trip from MN to Iowa to get a bottle?

Surly Darkness

Noticed there's an event at the brewery this weekend and you have to get a wristband in order to buy a max of 6 bottles.

I've never tried it. What's the allure?

Best Reuben in the Twin Cities?

City Pages gave their nod to Skinner's over Mac's because it was easier to eat. Go figure.

Tipping the teppanyaki chef

Taking the kids to a teppanyaki restaurant this weekend and not sure how to tip (haven't been to one in many years). I assume we'll have a server. Do I tip the server on the bill amount and give something extra to the teppanyaki chef or does 1 tip cover everyone? Standard 20% of the bill?

Where to get the best beef jerky in the Twin Cities?

They have it in jars at the bar or you can get it packaged. Great salty treat to munch on while sipping a beer.

Bakon vodka

It was made with bacon fat and that's precisely what it tasted like - bacon fat.

Bakon vodka

I tried a homemade bacon infused vodka and it was horrible. Has anyone tried this Bakon vodka : http://bakonvodka.com/

Does it really taste like bacon?

Restaurant in El Burrito Mercado ??

Excellent huevos rancheros. They usually have a huge cauldron of menudo simmering away - smells wonderful, just haven't had the courage to try it.

Grocery Delivery, Minneapolis or St. Paul?

You mentioned the delivery guys. What's the tipping protocol for home delivery?
