Seafood Restaurant (Non-fried)
Looking for a nice seafood restaurant to go to for a birthday. I enjoy places like Sea Salt and Anchor but we aren't in the mood for fried fish. What are some of the good seafood places in the cities?
Sea Change is good, no doubt. Here are a couple of thoughts in terms of a more "traditional" seafood restaurant:
Blue Point in Wayzata gets some love from this board from time to time. I know they opened up a second in Bloomington, but I always say stick to the first location.
The Nicollet Island Inn handles seafood in a traditional manner and the place is for sure romantic.
The two downtown chains (Oceanaire and McCormick and Schmicks) are also reliable.

+1 for Meritage. The best seafood isn't always at a seafood-themed restaurant.
410 Saint Peter St, Saint Paul, MN 55102
Not a seafood restaurant, but The Craftsman usually has 2-3 seafood entrees which are quite excellent on their menu (which changes regularly)
