MSP Chowhounds - have you tried the new R. Norman's

chic11gal Feb 8, 2008 02:02 PM

I booked a table for R. Normans for Restaurant Week and was wondering if anyone has eaten there and if there was anything of note. I'm slightly wary because I've had at best, OK food at Bellanotte, but I have higher hopes for the new venture.

    Since no one else has answered, I'll give you my weak data point. I was with two clients earlier this week who had eaten there and liked it a lot. They said the food was pretty good. I can't tell you about their chow bona fides though so don't go on my word alone.

      R. Normans is about the décor. I ate there once. Wont be back.
      I had a small steak that was unremarkable. I looked around the room. Some of the guests seemed to be having a good time but no one was paying much attention to the food.

        Glad I found this post - I have also never been & have a reservation there this week. I'm going to assume the steaks are ok, but I'm not much of a steak eater. I was previewing their menu & am wondering if anyone can tell me if the fish/seafood selections are any good. Thanks Hounds!

          We're going tomorrow night for dessert after a show at Pantages. I'll let you know what I think.
