Minneapolis, Minnesota

If you think of “Prairie Home Companion,” Jell-O salad, and hot dish when you think of Minnesota cuisine, you’re way off the mark—at least in the Twin Cities. Minneapolis and St. Paul are part of a vibrant Midwest dining scene that’s second only to Chicago. Although the region was settled by Scandinavians drawn to the timber and flour mills, you’ll be hard-pressed to find Norwegian or Swedish restaurants these days now that Marcus Samuelsson’s Aquavit has closed. New immigrants, from Somalia, Laos, and Mexico have changed the local culinary landscape. Minneapolis is the younger, hipper sibling, with cutting-edge restaurants and architecture (check out the new Guthrie Theater overlooking the Mississippi). St. Paul, the state capitol, is the clean-cut traditionalist; famous Summit Avenue residents included F. Scott Fitzgerald and timber magnate Frederick Weyerhaeuser.
