Boneyard-Uptown Minneapolis

Boneyard-Uptown Minneapolis

Last night we went to Boneyard for the first time. The parking lot is still a little chewed up as they’re doing some construction on the patio area. So there aren’t as much parking as hopefully there will be once that’s done. We used to go to Old Chicago all the time and were quite…

1st Wok

1st Wok

We’ve been going here for years too. What can I say, we’re creatures of habit. My favorite dish is the Chicken Chow Fun: Greg likes the Sizzling Go Bar: The egg rolls are wonderful, about 90% of the time, but there are times when they’re so greasy I can’t eat them. For lunch I like…

Sunny Side Up Cafe

Sunny Side Up Cafe

We’ve been going to Sunny Side Up for years. I’ve seen reviews complaining about the wait. Yes, you DO have to wait outside…in the cold. It’s a busy place, and they don’t have room for a waiting room, so you wait in the vestibule, or if you got there late, outside. Tough. Just please do…

Ginger Hop

I’ve been to Ginger Hop three times as of 9/27/2010. I wasn’t as good about taking photos of everything I ate before this, so I guess I’ll have to go back and order the stuff I’ve eaten previously so you can see it! Anyway, Greg and I went here on 9/24/2010 and had a very…

Old Chicago

Old Chicago

Well, we’ve been to Old Chicago in Uptown more times than I can count. In fact we started going there before they were open! That’s right, many moons ago we saw that this new place was opening near our apartment and we stopped in. Turns out it was just the employee party before their grand…

Quang Deli: Updated 9/2010

We love Quang Deli (Restaurant, but they answer the phone “Quang deli!!”). We’d been reading about it for quite some time, but it was when a good friend whose opinion we trust was aghast that we’d not been there yet, we decided we’d better try it. We’ve been there a gazillion times since and always…

Keegan’s Irish Pub

Keegan’s Irish Pub

We’ve been to Keegan’s several times for lunch since I work right near there. I’ve tried several things on the menu but I often come back to the Cheddar Onion Soup. It’s sort of like the classic French Onion Soup but with an Irish twist. Described as: Onion soup covered with baked cheddar & monterey…

The View

We love The View. The food is always fantastic and the service is great too. Well, except for that one time the guy took my leftovers back to the kitchen to box them up and I never saw them again. I think he was hungover. This is the super yummy and healthy* California Chicken Sandwich…

Dulano’s

Dulano’s

We were craving thin crispy crust pizza. Beek’s is gone and Fireside (our top choice) was too far away. So we went to Dulano’s . Funny how we we lived 4 blocks from here for 10 years but didn’t visit until we’d been away from the neighborhood for almost 5 years. The Crust was awesome.…

The Modern Cafe

The Modern Cafe

Greg and I were going to go out to lunch today and I was tired of the same old places we do (which are good, but you know…variety and all that). So I created a Google map that showed all the restaurants near my work. I am lucky that there are several! I started looking…
