Any New Lunch Places Near US Bank Building in DT Minneapolis?

cynbaker Feb 16, 2011 05:19 AM

I have a couple of business lunches coming up in DT Minneapolis. I haven't been downtown for a while. Any suggestions for something fairly close to the US Bank Building (6th and 2nd).

    I would think about Mission in the IDS center (Nicollet and Seventh) or Atlas in the US Bank Center.

    Foodwise, I'd give an edge to Mission.

    Both are nice comfortable spaces for a business lunch, with good service and fine food.

    You can just walk downstairs to Atlas or walk a few blocks in the skyway or outside to Mission.

      Another option for you may be The Inn where Hell's Kitchen used to be.

      I haven't been there but it seems to be getting rave reviews.

      It may be just a couple blocks farther to walk.

      Here's some recent commentary on it:

      80 South 9th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402

        The Inn is not open for lunch - just dinner I believe.

        Mission would be my first choice.

        Bank, the restaurant in the Westin Hotel, is also a nice business lunch place and is quite close. The food is not extraordinary, but it's decent, and the setting is very nice.

          Restaurant Max in the Hotel Minneapolis is good for business lunch and it's only a block north.

            Not new and not as close as other restaurants, but Vincent has to be the best lunch deal in town (and certainly is in the argument for best restaurant): $12.95 for two courses of lusciousness. I defy anyone to find a better downtown deal.
