"Date night" offers--need suggestions

  • 5

I could not find anything recent so am asking the question--who has a good "date night" deal?

We are redoing our kitchen and are strategizing our dining options for the next couple of months. Happy Hours don't work for us as we are rarely home from work before 6 and more interested in food than drink.

Here is the list I was able to cobble together....more suggestions, please! ($50 or under per couple and Minneapolis/St.Paul proper preferred) Thanks in advance for your help.

Sunday
-Rinata ($20/person)
- Bar Lurcat ($50/couple includes wine)
-Masa ($50/couple includes wine)
-Levain ($25/person-no wine)

Monday
-Bryant Lake Bowl ($28/couple--includes a round of bowling)
-Barbette--$32 a person no wine

Tuesday
-Al Vento ($20/person no wine)
-luci ancora ($25/person tasting menu)--Thursday, too
-Grand cafe ($50/couple with wine)
-Red Stag ($32/couple with wine)

Wednesday
- Ngon ($30/couple includes wine)
-Water street inn stillwater --wine dinner $34/person
-Chimborazo ($35/couple including wine)

S-Th-- Broders late night-post 8pm deal.

  1. sanctuary has a 30/person for restaurant week this week. a bit over your budget but well worth it

    also, you could make a 3 course tasting meal each at Victory 44 for that price range as well

    1. Just found Scusi--$45/couple on Tuesdays, but not this Tuesday.

        GET THE REEL DEAL AT MOZZA MIA AND THE EDINA THEATER
        Every day, enjoy dinner for two, including a bottle of wine and gelato, plus two tickets to the Edina Theater for just $45! Purchase at Mozza Mia, then simply walk across the street to catch the latest art house hit.

        1. I would also suggest you look at Groupon. There are often deals available along the lines of $15 gets you $30 at a restaurant.

          1. Muffuletta has a 3 course tasting on Sundays - $25/person no wine
            Sanctuary - They actually do a 5 course tasting M-Th, it's $35/person though so a little high. It was very good though when we had it a few months ago.
