Searching the Skyway...
I'm brand new to MSP (you guys gave me great tips for a visit out here last Spring) and in search of places to eat in the downtown Skyway. I bring a lunch from home most days but when I can't, I'd love to know a few chow-approved places (if any exist) downtown.
There is a NY style pizza place just NW of Macys that is more than reliable. Walkin' Dog is a bit hard to find, but very good. There is a sushi place whose name eludes me, but is right off IDS. I'm sure someone can fill in the blanks there. La Loma Tamales is at 6th street and 2nd avenue. That's good stuff.

1. The Burger Place: 501 Marquette Ave (skyway level)
They have a large assortment of burgers and while the prices are not what I'd consider inexpensive, the burgers are good and better than what you'll find elsewhere in the Skyway.
2. Kabobs Indian Grill (top floor of Gaviidae Commons in the food court): 555 Nicolett Mall FC#8
They have a very inexpensive "one-trip" Indian "buffet" for about $7 with drink/tax. It is definitely a lot of food and the line can get very long at rush times but it moves quickly.
3. Zen Box: 6 Quebec at Skyway Level / 601 Marquette Ave, Suite 204
I never cared for it but others absolutely love it. The owners have contacted me about my review of the place and promised to make good on it. I went back another time after that and it was just "eh".

The Burger Place (L Philip's Cafe)
501 Marquette Ave Ste 220, Minneapolis, MN 55402
My Burger is good and not incredibly expensive - it's in the Northstar Center near the Walkin Dog and La Loma. I also like Brother's Deli for sandwiches - its in 50 South Sixth and Allies for soup - is in 1 Financial Plaza. Have fun exploring!
