Hell's Kitchen or Red Stag for Brunch on Sunday (MSP)

Travelling from to Toledo to meet 5 relatives for Sunday brunch. Hell's Kitchen and Red Stag are the two contenders to meet everyone's needs (e.g. cocktails and location). I want to explore the Antiques Riverwalk after brunch. Please advise on which place to go to or another place in the vicinity of the Antiquest Riverwalk (warehouse district). Thank you for your insight.

  1. Hell's Kitchen is far superior, although it can be loud if there is a good gospel group playing. You will need reservations.

    1. Another option for Sunday brunch is the Nicollet Island Inn. It's right on the river. Very scenic. And they have a very nice prix fixe 5 course brunch. Kind of on the fine dining side of things, but it's a lot more casual for brunch. It's another option for you anyway.

      1. Hell's Kitchen is way better! Get the corned beef hash! The Gospel music gets a little annoying, I suggest going after 1pm, no Gospel, much less busy.

          if you're not into gospel music you can ask to be seated in one of the other rooms (not the main room, with a stage), right?-- there is one other dining room, plus a second bar area. . . or do they pipe in those sweet gospel sounds throughout the whole restaurant?

        2. Hell's Kitchen. Hands down.
