Casual Lunch/Drinks for 10 Edina/St Louis Park/Bloomington Area

Hey TC hounds,

We're coming back to town and are looking to have a casual lunch with some of our old friends. We're looking for a place where we can get some food and drink and chat for a few hours (noon to 3pm) on Saturday.

Sports bar like Champs in Bloomington probably too downmarket in the food area for our friends.
Toyed with Barbette, but want to make parking easy for people.
Salut in Edina I'm not sure if it lends itself to people coming and going.
We were toying with just grabbing the big long table at Punch in Lk Calhoun, but thought that would be rude and a bit crowded during a weekend lunch hour.

Any thoughts?

  1. Via in Edina sounds like it might fit what you are looking for.

    1. Kozy's in the Galleria was surprisingly decent. Their website is

      I don't remember, though, if seating 10 there would be pleasant. We went over lunch twice a few weeks ago and it was rather quiet both times. Those were on weekdays though so I'm not sure how it will stack up on a weekend... doesn't strike me as a place that would draw a loud crowd, though.
