Where to Eat for MPLS/St. Paul Restaurant Week, Feb. '14

View as Map

Restaurant week starts in one week and runs from Sunday, February 23 to Friday, February 28, with 44 restaurants participating in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and a few outlying suburbs. How it works: Participating restaurants offer a multi-course menu (with some options) for $10-$20 for lunch and $15-$30 for dinner. And just a friendly reminder: reservations are recommended at all spots on this list, especially if you're headed there for dinner (and tables are already starting to fill up).

But how to know if you're getting a deal or if you're just being strong-armed into three courses that you would never even order a la carte? We've parsed the list for you and come up with our best bets for getting the most out of restaurant week: places that give you options for each course, don't have a lot of unavoidable supplements, and seem like they give you your money's worth. You can also see all the restaurant week menus here and judge for yourself.

Have a great restaurant week meal? Get a bum deal? Let us know in the comments, so we can all benefit from your restaurant week triumphs (or tales of woe).
