MSP-Places by the Riverview Theater?

Moday is date night-and we're going to the movies. Is there any good places to eat nearby (besides the Riverside Wine Bar or the Coffee place?

    Well, we ended up seeing Juno, and my fiancee (who would have been very very happy with Chipotle suggested geting something to eat. I had too much fantastic popcorn and too much work waiting for me at home, so we ended up calling it a day (I know he probably ended up nuking something from Trader Joe's!) Thanks for your help-we'll try to explore the neighborhood more next time we go.

      I agree with yummers612 on the Craftsman.

      Also Chris and Rob's (formerly Joey D's) isn't too far off either, if you like chowing on Chicago style hot dogs before going to the movies.

        I'm not sure if you're into casual Japanesse dining, but Midori's Floating World Cafe is also right around the corner from the Town Talk Diner/Manny's Tortas. Farily affordable sushi and other Japanese.

        Most of the best choices are already listed here. Craftsman, Town Talk, Manny's Tortas, Longfellow, or Midori's would be your best bets with the final decision being what you're in the mood for and price points, in my opinion.

          I thought I read that Sea Salt is open. I have yet to try this place but I've only heard good things. It is at Minehaha Park...

            Sea Salt is open! It opened the first week of April.

            The Longfellow Grill is on Lake, right next to the river. Not sure how close you're looking for, but Town Talk and Manny's Tortas also aren't far.

              Don't forget to save room for their popcorn though. Mmmm riverview popcorn . . .
