Nothing beats a romantic dinner over a nice glass of wine on Valentine’s Day. But with hundreds of restaurants in Minneapolis – some you’ve probably never heard of before – finding the perfect place for you and your sweetie for Feb. 14 can be hard. We thought we would help you skip the stress with a few of our favorite restaurants that will please both of your palates.
Corner Table – 4537 Nicollet Avenue South. The great news is you have the option to choose between a tasting menu with the chef’s 5-course meal or ordering starters and an entrée from the menu. No matter what you choose, you can rest assure the quality of food will not disappoint.
Desrochers Tip: Sit at the bar to watch the chefs in action.
Restaurant Alma – 528 University Avenue Southeast. A smaller, quainter restaurant, Restaurant Alma already has that “date night” atmosphere about it. The food is handcrafted from fresh and seasonal ingredients with wine recommendations that will win over any Valentine.
Desrochers Tip: Opt for the 3-course tasting menu with wine pairings.
Café Ena – 4601 Grand Avenue South. If you’re looking for something different this Valentine’s Day, head to Café Ena. The Latin fusion cuisine will serve you the best guacamole you’ve ever had complete with homemade tortilla chips.
Descrochers Tip: Hector, the owner, is awesome. Sometimes he comes out to say hi.
