Where should my siblings and I take our parents (foodies) for a celebratory dinner? It will be mid August...

  1. It's helpful to know

    -what area of MSP is best?
    -how many of you are there?
    -are there any cuisines that are out/any cuisines that are preferred?
    -are there any budget restrictions?

    1. 5 adults, from tier 1 mpls suburb, no budget, open to all food!

      1. For special occasions like yours, I've always enjoyed Cosmos. It is a great room and the food and service are both excellent.

        1. Cosmos is a great rec. I'd also consider Corner Table.

          1. I've found the more traditional places work well for these type of events. For my money, nobody does these better than Jax. The Kozlaks provide top notch service. Mid-August will be perfect patio weather. The food is always solid and the fun in catching your own trout for those who prefer fish. And they'll add in little touches including personalized match books to mark the event.

              Didn't Kozlak's close? They were looking for a new space, but I don't think they ever found one. If they did, it didn't get much press.

                The Kozlaks own Jax's. They also had a few other places that have closed. You may be thinking of Kozlak's Royal Oak.

                  The Kozlak's started the Royal Oak but hadn't owned it in years. Yes that restaurant is no longer in business but they weren't involved in it for years.
