Where to take some visiting Food Snobs?

My uncle and family are coming in from California this weekend. He is a self- confirmed food snob and requests "good dining." his preference would be French, and he would like some good Foie Gras.

We would prefer St Paul, as we are in the eastern suburbs, but will drive to Minneapolis (anywhere not too far off 94).

I'm not sure how the French scene here is- so if any type cuisine would be considered- as long as it would meet my Uncle's high standards!

Thank you!

    1. Meritage. I can think of no other.

      1. You might try Vincent on NIcollet Mall. They have foie gras on the menu. I haven't eaten there in a while, but had great experiences when I did.

        1. I think you would be surprised of the food here- La Belle Vie or Meritage for french.

          If not french- Piccolo would be a nice seat.
          If that is out of your price range, then Alma, 112 Eatery, Sanctuary (people might gasp when I say that).

          1. Not Sanctuary (count me among the gaspers).

            Ditto Meritage and La Belle Vie. Ditto Piccolo. Sticking around St. Paul, I'd also suggest i Nonni. For Minneapolis, Alma.
