I was with my sister in Minneapolis recently, visiting my nephew (her son) and his wife, and they suggested Eat Street Social for dinner. It was a good choice and I'd go back there again, definitely!
There are a lot of good eating choices in Minneapolis. Eat Street Social could probably be described as urban-trendy with both modern and historic overtones. Set in an older building, the space itself is very open and airy. That also makes it a bit loud.
I had a wonderful pasta carbonara dish that was nicely done shell pasta served with peas, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, a bit of bacon, and a creamy sauce, topped with some parmesan and a bit of romano as well, I believe. It was very good though I will say just a bit heavy. Still, I loved it. My sister and nephew both had the steak, and both raved about it. The food was very good, the atmosphere superb, the drinks went down very well, and the company was priceless. I'd go back here, for sure!
