Perhaps the reason that the Steven's Square / Loring park neighborhood gets overlooked as a food destination is because it’s hard to classify. Sure, it’s a great neighborhood for art with the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Children’s Theater, the original Electric Fetus, MCAD and more, but it’s also mixed bag of culinary options. That’s exactly what makes it stand out. Within a few blocks there is traditional barbecue, a 24-hour diner, and some of the best oysters in the city, all encircling a park that literally lights up in the winter and offers plenty of shade and free public swimming in the summer. Whether craving shepherd’s pie or sweet and sour chicken, you’ll find it in this rough-around-the-edges neighborhood in central Minneapolis.
