Find Your New Favorite Restaurant in Minneapolis

Nothing makes you feel more at home than a meal from your favorite hometown restaurant. But when you are new in town, it can be hard to find that special place to grab some comfort food with friends or family. Lucky for you, Minneapolis is packed with great restaurants and eateries that will satisfy any craving and make you feel welcome. So tuck in your napkin and get ready for your mouth to water as your Minneapolis relocation company gives you the dish.

Burgers. The 5-8 Club is famous…no, it really is. Its Juicy Lucy was named one of Time Magazine’s “most influential burgers.” Who knew that was even a thing? The juicy burger is stuffed with cheese, grilled on a flat top, and added to a fresh bun topped with pickles. It is the staple, go-to burger for any resident of Minneapolis.

Italian. If Italian food is more your speed, then head to Broders’, a Minneapolis favorite. This joint was featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”, and it boasts some downright delicious authentic pasta. Orecchiette con langostino (pasta with lobster and basil pesto), tortelloni di barbabietola (tortellini made with brown butter and mascarpone), and fettuccine alla Bolognese (egg fettuccine with beef, pork and nutmeg Bolognese sauce) will all impress you.

Greek. There’s plenty of Greek restaurants in the City of Lakes, but Christos is our favorite. It was voted “Best Greek Restaurant” in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine’s Readers’ Poll, and it is easy to see why. Their hummus is as good as their gyros, falafel, and spanakopita. You really can’t go wrong here! Christos is located on Eat Street; which includes 17 city blocks and more than 50 restaurants, bakeries and delis. If you are new to Minneapolis, you definitely need to check this neighborhood out.

Brunch. Everyone loves a good brunch, and folks in Minneapolis are no different. Tilia, located in Lindin Hills, is the place to brunch. Their buttermilk biscuits, Rueben benedict, and fried egg and mortadella sandwich are all crowd pleasers. And their grapefruit mimosas and reverse bloody Marys make brunch even sweeter. Brunch is from 9 a.m. - 2:45 p.m., but their lunch and dinner menu is just as good!

Chinese. Greasy Chinese food is good, but authentic and healthy Chinese food is even better. If this sounds appealing to you, then you will love Szechuan Spice, which touts itself as a healthy, modern and mild Chinese restaurant. It received a four-star award from Pioneer Press, so you know it is good! Their Szechuan Big Fish Bowl, Lobster with Ginger Scallion, sesame beef, and Ma Po Tofu are all very popular.

Date night. If you are looking for somewhere unique for date night, try Victory 44. This small eatery is run by Chef Erick Harcey, who changes the menu all the time. They even serve a 10-course meal of small plates; which includes dishes like: beer cheese soup, salmon pastrami with croquettes, and ham and pickle tots.

Minneapolis is a foodie’s dream. Sample foods from around the globe without leaving the comfort of your new city! And while the weather can get downright cold, you can always warm up at a local restaurant!
