MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s time to get out and try that new restaurant you’ve been wondering about.

It’s Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazine’s “Summer Restaurant Week,” where more than 40 restaurants are offering lunches and dinners at deep discounts.

Magazine senior editor and WCCO’s “Off the Menu” host Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl says it’s become a very popular event for local restaurant clubs.

“You can have a real vacation in town trying out all these places,” Grumdahl said.

Grumdahl says one of the best aspects of Minnesota restaurants: Farm-to-table fare.

“There’s a farm-to-table thing that’s very deep here that isn’t there on the east coast or even the west coast. We have a more sophisticated meat palette then a lot of places do and it’s very of-the-moment and very cool,” Grumdahl said.

Two-course lunches start at only $10 and dinner at $15.
