It was nearly ten years ago when Chef Jonathan Hunt opened an Italian restaurant in the Nokomis neighborhood of Minneapolis. The city has changed. “There’s definitely a lot more restaurants and I think that [the] diner has changed as well,” Hunt said. “We’ve been able to educate.”
Craving fresh, authentic Italian dishes? Belly up to the pasta bar and carbo-load at these top Twin Cities spots for noodles, gnocchi and more.
There’s simply nothing better than having a delicious meal, eating yourself into a food coma and knowing that sweatpants and a comfy couch are just a few blocks away.
One of my favorite things is finding a little place I’ve never heard of and having a great dining experience. Maybe it’s the atmosphere, the food, the service or perhaps all of them! Here are a few places I stumbled upon that hopefully you can enjoy also!
Twin Cities travelers and tourists unite for the sake of food! We’ve all been there — you’ve just gotten off a long flight, you’ve only had fast food from the airport or maybe a bag of peanuts or pretzels on the plane and there’s no way you are suffering through another quick meal after you land.
If that describes you, look no further. Here’s a list of 10 of the best places to eat near the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport. These are the eating establishments off the beaten path. Noticeably missing from this list are the chains that you can visit in every other state or the restaurants located in the hotels. Our picks are also all less than 10 miles away from the airport and are categorized based on what flavor you’re craving (seafood, burgers, pizza, etc.).
It’s time to get out and explore a taste of what the Twin Cities has to offer just a short drive from the runways.
