Moderate places to eat downtown (msp)


I will be at a conference at the Minneapolis Hilton in early May. Looking for dining suggestions nearby that are in the moderate range - 15 -22 dollars for entree. Also, a good place for 10-15 folks to go for dinner.

Is it worth going to 112 Eatery & how far is it from downtown? If we were to do one pricey dinner, what would be the best choice?

  1. Yes, it is very much worth going to 112 Eatery. It is in downtown, a reasonable walk from the Hilton.

    For one "pricey" dinner, I would suggest Cosmos right downtown (in the Graves 601 Hotel) if you are looking for something a bit sleeker and modern or La Belle Vie, which is on the edge of downtown and is a very classic, refined place. Or you can try Porter & Frye, which is a new place in the Hotel Ivy and has a very well-assembled group of chefs, led by Steven Brown, one of MSP's shining culinary stars. Many of the hounds posting here, myself included, have not been yet.

    Welcome and enjoy.
