Bacon-wrapped shrimp! Ridiculously good, grilled or roasted in the oven, and seasoned with chili and lime. Two tricks ensure crispy bacon without overcooking the shrimp. Perfect for your next backyard BBQ!
Who knew stale bread could be so good? This Chicken Panzanella Salad with bread, tomatoes, and shredded chicken is the perfect dinner for a hot summer night. Easy, delicious, and good enough to eat on its own!
You live here? You’re visiting? YOU LIKE TO EAT? This is good. You are in the right place. We have all the foods.
Eating out is one of my skills / hobbies / specialties in life, and luckily, at least half of our Pinch of Yum team lives here in this city with an amazing restaurant scene. And by city we mean TWO CITIES, because is one really enough? Thank you, Minneapolis. Thank you, St. Paul.
This list has been a team effort – we just thought it was high time that we rounded up all our go-to spots. For when people ask us, but also, for when we ask each other, which is constantly.
From coffee to dinner, this post lists our collective favorites for:
Modern, fun food meets an actual 1957 diner. Plus a charming patio for the better-weather days. The menu is part classic and lovable, part zany and weird and really ridiculous. The best of both worlds!
What we order: Gary Cooper (fried chicken on a donut? you can’t make this up), Huevos Rancheros, or good ol’ Pancakes
Just a good, basic, strip mall, neighborhood sushi spot that will make all your dynamite roll dreams come true. Takeout is the reg for us, but contrary to everything you think, the in-house all-you-can-eat deal is actually kind of amazing.
What we order: Dynamite Roll, Kyoto Roll, Dragon Roll, and maybe Vegetable Tempura if you’re feeling greedy
If we counted up all our Bitesquad orders at the office over the past few years, approximately 95% of them would be from Spitz. This restaurant is not exclusive to the Twin Cities and we don’t care. It’s a winner.
What we order: Street Cart Fries, Street Cart Doner, or Doner Basket (with falafel or beef/lamb)
Looking for the famous Juicy Lucy? Here you go! Yes, you could go to any of the amazing spots that serve it but we’re partial to the fries – er, the vibe – at the Nook (complete with vintage bowling alley downstairs).
Small menu, large beer list, cozy bar for winter, and great patio for summer. Stop in the more proper restaurant for a fancy steak or lobster mac and cheese, or opt for the bar-side for poutine and wings.
What we order: Short Rib Egg Rolls, Lobster Mac and Cheese, Cheeseburger, and the fries – oh my goodness, THE FRIES
If we had to pick one spot to say “YOU HAVE TO GO HERE” it would be Bar La Grassa. Best pastas, best wine list, best cozy date-night atmosphere. Just, honestly, best everything.
What we order: Charred Red Onion and Goat Cheese Bruschetta, Roasted Beets with Burrata and Pistachios, Gnocchi with Cauliflower and Orange (A MUST), Pappardelle with Veal Ragu, Penne Rigate with Shrimp
