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.
1070 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55403
900 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55403
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.
