Hi! Just looking for some fun, reasonably priced restaurants ($50-$70/couple) for a group of about 20 coming to the area from Faribault. We have thought about Zelo, Wildfire, or heading south to the Hubbell House and need a menu with variety because we have some picky eaters. Anything less than an hour away would be great! Thanks!

      I second Ciao Bella in Edina and would also add Crave in Edina as well.

        Since they're coming from Faribault, maybe the Crave in the Mall of America would be more convenient.

        Enjoy! restaurant in Apple Valley. Moderate prices, variety, convenient coming from the south, and a very large restaurant which would accommodate a group of 20 easily.

            Molly Cool's in Lakeville might also fit this kind of event. Also, if you were thinking about Zelo, Ciao Bella in Edina is closer than going downtown and more or less the same thing (owned by the same group).

              Yeah. Not only is the food great, but there are a variety of price points for different budgets. Plus, the food should be pretty familiar (steaks, pasta, pizzas, salads) to a younger audience.
