Backup for Tilia
Going to try to visit Tilia later this week with another couple. Not sure how the "wait" situation is for a weeknight. But if it's too long, any suggestions for a last minute alternative - preferably between Tilia in SW Mpls and downtown?
So far, I'm thinking Lucias or perhaps Cafe 28 or Victors 1959. Other ideas?
I would forget about Tilia and head right over to In Season, which is by far some of the best food in the city. I don't want to say that Tilia not worth waiting but I would switch and and say if the wait is long at In Season head over to Tilia.

I enjoy In Season as well, but think that it's a little higher in price than Tilia (at least as I understand Tilia - I haven't eaten there myself). Another nearby place that we've enjoyed is Tosca. Other possibilities include Corner Table, Grand Cafe, Blackbird Cafe (haven't eaten there in their new digs) or maybe Kings Wine Bar. I'd put all of those places ahead of Victor's.

Kings Wine Bar

Thanks for the suggestions. So far, I think Cafe 28 will be our first backup choice (notwithstanding their future), followed by Lucias and Tosca.
