MSP: biz casual lunch along 94 corridor

The stretch between 694 (Brooklyn Ctr) & 35W (Mpls)'s gotta be really close/convenient to 94. TIA

  1. Not *real* close to 94, but how about something along Washington Ave overin the warehouse district... YOu can kinda slide in from the West off of 94... I'm thikning Monte Carlo or Be'Wiched...

      Thanks. I don't know how busy that area gets at lunch time, but I was concerned it would be (busy) and the traffic, lights, and one-way streets would take more time/effort than available. If any regulars to this area can speak to weekday congestion, that would be good info to have.

      I did some googling, and there's not really much along that stretch except fast-food chains, but I did find a couple possibilities.

    2. I'd do Sauced-- right off of 94 and the 55 Olson Memorial Hwy exit.

        Sauced is a few miles from there -- up on 44th. Worth the diversion.

        Be'wiched is very convenient from 94. Only a couple stoplights -- very little traffic. Bring some change for the meters.

          Sorry, MSPD, you're right-- I think I meant the Dowling exit. It's at 44th ave N and Penn.

      2. How about Oak City in Brooklyn Center? Nice atmosphere and decent food. Plus it's much easier and more convenient to get to than Sauced or Be'wiched. 94/694 and Shingle Creek Parkway.
