Restaurants near Pantages

Going to a show at the Pantages on Hennepin this coming weekend and looking for restaurant recs within walking distance. Thinking of these at the moment:


Been to 112 not long ago so I didn't include.

Thoughts on noted restaurants or suggestions are appreciated.

  1. If you'd go as far as 112, I'd recommend Saffron (right across the street) as another possibility. Great food - I think comparable to 112.

    Another place I often recommend to those who are seeing shows is Eli's on Hennepin between 12th and 11th.

    Of the places you've listed, I would choose Masa or Solera over Barrio or Mission. Barrio is fine, but I've not had great food there. Mission is a little too conventional in its menu - I go there for business lunches, but would not choose it if I'm eating for myself.

    Both Masa and Solera are fun and I've had good experiences with the food there - although the both have a corporate feel IMHO.

    Eli's Bar & Grill
    1225 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403

    Mission American Kitchen & Bar
    77 South 7th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402

    925 Nicolett Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55402

    Saffron Restaurant & Lounge
    123 N 3rd St, Minneapolis, MN 55401

    1. I actually suggested this to someone else on a different post but I'd go for drinks at Bradstreet Crafthouse (or even eat there too- I finally tried a few of the plates and they were delicious) then Cosmos for dinner.
