Girls Birthday Lunch (msp)

I am looking for some place "new" to celabrate my birthday with a few girlfriends. We usually do a lunch, that includes at least 2 bottles of wine, and good food. Most recently we celebrated at La Grolla in St. Paul.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I've been checking out the reviews on The Strip Club, and Porter & Frye. Basically I'm up for anywhere in the St. Paul/MPLS area.

  1. Some suggestions in South Minneapolis:

    Blackbird- Some amazing sandwiches
    Grand Cafe- Really tasty brunch
    Craftsman- Everything is good, highly recommend the venison burger

    And in St. Paul, my choice would be Ngon Bistro. Very tasty Vietnamese/French fusion food.

    Craftsman Restaurant
    4300 Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN 55406

    Grand Cafe
    3804 Grand Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55409

    Blackbird Cafe
    3800 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55409

    Ngon Vietnamese Bistro - duplicate
    799 University Ave, W St Paul, MN

    1. I won't gush about Signature Cafe again here (you can search for plenty of threads on that). But "Girls lunches" are a significant part of their lunchtime business. It is a really nice setting for that sort of thing. Their patio should be opening in a couple of weeks too. That would make it even better...
