As 2016 comes to a close, it’s time to reminisce over the best new restaurants that opened their doors this year in the Twin Cities. Minnesota Monthly’s picks include Upton 43, a sophisticated Scandinavian restaurant in Linden Hills; Hi-Lo Diner, home of the signature “Hi-Top” dish (which is basically an unfrosted donut topped with sweets); and St. Genevieve, the sister restaurant to Tilia, which serves French fare and a variety of wines. Other restaurants include Xavi, specializing in new American fare, and Mucci’s, the sister restaurant to Strip Club Meat and Fish, offering old-school Italian dishes.
