Finding fine dining.

Last night I had a nice meal at Morton’s steak house downtown.

Morton’s is a chain of steak places; I first visited one in San Diego. The ambiance is quite similar in the Minneapolis version, and the steak was as good as I remember (very). Our service was a bit slow due to all the staff being distracted by a very large party in the private dining room. However, the wine selection is huge and the menu solid. Dessert was a Godiva chocolate cake a la mode.

I’ve been relying on word-of-mouth recommendations with an occasional visit to twincities.citysearch.com for some of their reviews. I’ve hit many of their “Fine Dining” listings over the past year or so and am running out of new options. What are other good resources for finding good eats in Minneapolis?

    The City Pages usually has a comprehensive list for their BotTC deal.

    Oh, and got to the Black Forest Inn.

    I always trust Dara from the City Pages… she’s usually right on about restaurants.

    The best place for independent restaurant reviews and news is the message boards on Chowhound.com. Mpls postings make up a significant portion of the Midwest message board.
