Welcome to the Eater Twin Cities Heatmap, a collection of exciting new restaurants that have opened or re-opened in the last six months or so. Despite the challenges of the pandemic — supply chain disruptions, shifting mandates, labor shortages, and precarious revenue streams — Minneapolis and St. Paul’s resilient restaurant community continues to find creative ways to introduce diners to fantastic food. This month, the map highlights Mario’s, a ‘70s-style pizzeria also serving hero sandwiches and zeppole doughnuts; Kalsada, a full-service modern Filipino restaurant serving lumpia shanghai and kare kare shortribs; and CrunCheese Korean Hot Dog, the Dinkytown spot where throngs of diners are queuing for potato, cheddar and sausage, and squid ink corn dogs.
