Minneapolis Restaurant Week

MPLS St. Paul Magazine’s Fall Restaurant Week is right around the corner!  October 23-28, participating restaurants will present specially priced meals (lunch, dinner, or both) that showcase their culinary offerings in the local dining scenes.  Lunches are $10/20 and dinner is $15/30 depending on the venue.  Tax, wine, beverages and tip are not included in that price.  Some of the participating restaurants include Bradstreet Crafthouse, Cafe and Bar Lurcat, Fogo de Chao, The Oceanaire Seafood Room, Solera and Urban Eatery.  For a full list of participating restaurants and details, click here.
