Excellent neighborhood pizza place. We have ordered exclusively from BMP (or Fast Friddies) for the past 10 years. They have a great selection of toppings and other things (the wings are great!) Make sure they ring the top doorbell on the front door!

This is our favorite Vietnamese restaurant, we have a take out menu in the apartment. We've been going there for 25 years. Hot and Spicy Chicken is great and they have the best egg rolls in the Twin Cities.

This is the best steakhouse in the MidWest..... Pricey trip back to the 1920's with tuxedo clad waitstaff and amazing food. Know for their "Butter Knife Steaks" and martinis.

Arts & Culture

The Guthrie Theater is the legendary regional theater founded by Sir Tyrone Guthrie in 1963. It's new location directly above the Stone Arch Bridge on the Mississippi is a beautiful architectural statement in it's own right. Affording beautiful views of the river and downtown from the cantilevered "bridge" on the East side of the building. Excellent theater and many dining opportunities make for a great evening in downtown. We are a 15 minute Uber ride from the Guthrie and the Mill Street Museum. https://www.guthrietheater.org/
