Looking for Good Food and Private Dining Room in Minneapolis

Tim Jan 28, 2006 05:12 PM


I'm looking for a decent restaurant with a private dining room that can hold up to thirty people. Within three miles (or so) of Nicollet and Franklin Avenues in Minneapolis is preferred. We're an eclectic bunch (with some vegetarians) who will try anything tasty in the $15-$25/person price range. Must be open on Sunday. Any suggestions?

    It's not Minneapolis, but it's nearby. Muffulatta has good food and a really nice private dining room.

        Call Maria's Cafe on Franklin and 12th Ave. http://www.mariascafe.com/twin_cities_banquets_maria's_minneapolis_minnesota.htm

        While they are more renowned for their breakfasts, I'd bet that Maria can do a fab Columbian inspired banquet dinner.

          Azia is 6 block away. It has a private dining area. I don't about $25 though.

            Temple (12th & Harmon, DT) has an AMAZING private dining space. You can talk to the Events dude and see what the chef can do for you in your price range. Events Dude: Tim 612.767.3770

              Tim...are you getting married to Molly by any chance? If so, she is asking the same question in this thread:


              I recommended several in there. Staying in budget will be tough, though possible. My top 3 would be Azia (within budget, eclectic), Loring Pasta Bar (bottom end of your budget) or Solera (top end of your budget).

              Check out the other topic though, I think Anne made mention of TC Originals which appears to be a GREAT find for private event rooms.

                If I read this thread correctly, Tim's dinner took place a year ago.

                After reading your thread I immediatly thought of Azia, I see others on here have already suggested that. I wouldnt plan on drinking if you plan on staying within your $25 per person budget, but the venue sounds like what you are looking for.
