Hubby will be in Msp tomorrow night. He is staying near Hwy. 169 and Wayzata Blvd. Needs a place for a good dinner in the area with his coworkers. Probably not downtown but Wayzata would be ok. Within a 15 min. drive would be best. Thanks!

    I believe he is staying at 169 and 394. He is not too far from the whole host or places in St. Louis Park--at West End. I have enjoyed the Cooper, but there a bunch of other places in the area, too. http://www.cooperpub.com/. Easy to get to, relatively easy parking for multiple cars if not everyone fits in one. Blue Point is lovely and if your expense account can handle it, that is a great suggestion.

      The standard options for business casual are Bacio or Redstone.

        Bacio is quite close to there and would work well for a business/work dinner. Nice interior, good service and generally well prepared food - fish, pasta, steaks ... (we've had a couple of less good nights over the years but nothing bad). I have a soft spot for the brasiliana salad - but celery, hearts of palm and lemon is not the combo for everyone.

          Blue Point in Wayzata would be my choice. It's a somewhat upscale seafood restaurant with comfortable surroundings and good service. I've always enjoyed the food there.

            Forgive me because I can't exactly place that intersection and google maps isn't giving me an intersection -- but what about Parma 8200? Also getting downtown isn't terrible that time of night, as it's going against traffic in that direction, and there are many more options.
