I have a lot of hometown pride for Minneapolis.
Home to numerous world-class theaters and museums, lakes and parks, the state-of-the-art Target Field, and various international businesses, Minneapolis is a great place to live.
One of my favorite parts about the city is the thriving foodie scene.
Here are five restaurants you should definitely try the next time you are in my lovely city.
These Minneapolis favorites serve great cuisine at moderate prices.
Blackbird Café: Blackbird offers casual fare with a twist, paired with a
wine list. Save room for their homemade desserts. (3800 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis (612) 823-4790)
Sapor Café and Bar: Sapor serves an ever-changing smattering of international
and offers cocktails, wine and beer from a full bar. (428 Washington Avenue North, Minneapolis (612) 375-1971)
