Des Moines dining on a MONDAY. Yikes!

I'm in a national tour of a play, August: Osage County, coming to Des Moines next week. We only have Monday nights off so I need a great dinner spot open then, which cuts out Lucca, Latin King, Cafe di Scala, Flying Mango and others. What do the experts suggest? Django? Centro? Hessen Haus? Sam and Gabes? My cast members DEPEND on my Monday night recs. Thanks.

  1. All good options, except Hessen Haus is less of a food destination (although if they want German food and beer, have at it). Trostel's Dish is fun as well, and great for groups.

      1. Star Bar is good, don't know if it's open on Mondays though.

        EDIT: ack, sorry didn't notice the date you were going to be in town. Where did people go? What were the responses to their meals?
