Coconut Thai

Copy Link

With clean, modern interior and a pretty patio, Coconut Thai features Thai dishes that owner and Chef Ngon brought with her from Bangkok three decades ago. Items Tom Yum soup, a gorgeous squash curry and I-tim Ma Praw, a creamy concoction of toasted coconut ice cream served with sweet sticky rice and topped with peanuts and evaporated milk. Chef Ngon also owns Ngon’s Kitchen in Golden Valley.

Raku Modern Japanese Cuisine

With a full sake program and a seemingly endless list of sushi options it might be easy to get lost in Raku’s menu that includes sushi rolls, sashimi and hot and cold specialties. The Playboy roll is shrimp tempura, asparagus and spicy tuna, topped with sushi shrimp and presented in a flaming aluminum wrap.

Sleek Japanese dining at Raku.

Salut Bar Americain

Copy Link

Salut serves accessible French cuisine, along with a full bar menu. The outdoor eating space is absolutely lovely. The menu includes the usual suspects like escargot bourguignonne, moules frites and bouillabaisse, but on Monday nights Executive Chef Paul Angeles showcases a classic Julia Child recipe with his own twist.

Cocina Del Barrio

Copy Link

Barrio is a bit of a party spot, focusing on over 100 varieties of tequila and mezcal along with bold Latin flavors. The Trinity margarita is the house special, crafted with Cabrito Blanco, Cointreau and lime juice. Barrio has five Twin Cities locations, including annexes at Target Field and the airport’s Terminal One.

Edina Grill

Copy Link

Consistently good this quintessential neighborhood grill has warm service with a lively, family-friendly atmosphere. Many breakfast options are served all day, including the kicky chilaquiles, but be sure and stop by before 4:00 p.m. for the sweet potato hash with guacamole and cilantro. Stay for a seasonal cocktail like Alex’s Spring Fling with Laird's Applejack.

Arezzo Ristorante

Copy Link

Arezzo serves a Tuscan menu with bistecca di maiale, scaloppine di vitello or delicate gnocchi. There is a brick pizza oven too, for those who cannot separate Italian from pizza pies, and Aperol cocktails served as digestif after dinner, just like the Tuscan Gods intended.

A taste of Tuscany on France.

Beaujo's Wine Bar & Bistro

Copy Link

This lovely wine bar is the ultimate spot to relax over one of 30 brands of wine, served by the glass, half-glass, flight or bottle. There is a sparse menu spanning a variety of cuisine like a Vietnamese Bahn Mi, gyros or Nicoise salad. If you have a non-wine drinker in tow, the bar offers a nice list of beers and espresso drinks as well. During happy hour a summery glass of Prosecco is just $6.50.

Sotarol

Copy Link

The “Sota” in the name stands for Minnesota, and this home grown mini chain currently has three locations with two more on deck, all in the Twin Cities. The fast-casual eatery focuses on clean Asian cuisine, using carefully sourced ingredients and avoiding MSG, dyes, and a little sadly, peanuts. The menu includes bowls, ramen and sushi, but the specialty here is Sotaritos- a tasty little burrito-eque roll stuffed a wide list of protein options, along with white and forbidden rice, all wrapped in tissue thin soy paper.

Cavé Vin

Copy Link

Translated as wine cellar in French, Cavé Vin serves what they are calling modern American cuisine prepared using classic French technique. The room is dark and transformative and the menu features European and Mediterranean influences from Italy to Greece with dishes like beef tartare, baked feta and pot de crème. Cavé Vin also offers a lovely backroom available for private dining.

A sweet little neighborhood cafe with fantastic wine.
