Betty McCollum’s “Turkey, Sweet Potato, and Wild Rice Hot Dish” took first place.
For a memorable meal in Minnesota, make a reservation at one of these local restaurants.
You made it to the weekend, and you deserve a sumptuous brunch with drinks as good as the food.
Diane Yang may be small in stature, but she’s a big force in La Belle Vie’s kitchen. “This is my corner of the kitchen. It’s nice because we have the window,” Yang said. “We’re the only place in the kitchen that has a window, so it keeps us sane.” As executive pastry chef of the top restaurant in the Twin Cities, Yang and her team are setting the standard for desserts.

Finally. I finally made the journey. After hearing about this haute-ly anticipated restaurant for months, then having to drool through reviews galore of their perfectly classic Midwestern cuisine, the wait was finally over.
Late-night fare has typically meant ordering a greasy pizza or searching down a local street vendor selling ballpark franks. But not anymore. Kiss those scrounging days goodbye — the Minneapolis scene is taking late-night cuisine to a whole new level.
