Best of the Cities

The spiciest curry, the stiffest drink, the greenest dry cleaner, the hippest adult entertainment (it’s not what you think), and the movers and shakers who make the Twin Cities a better—and more interesting—place to live. They’re all right here, in our annual best-of-the-best guide.

FOOD

Takeout

Life is hard. But when the jerk your sister brought home steals the knobs from your stove for scrap metal, it’s good to know Lucia Watson has your back. With Lucia’s Take-Home salads, like just-from-the-farm arugula tossed with white beans dressed in a zesty, rosemary-touched vinaigrette. Of course, man doesn’t live on greens alone. There must be an entrée, like strawberry-colored, rare-roasted Creekstone farms beef tenderloin, served cold with a green peppercorn aioli on the side. That’s takeout! Round out your shopping bag with a loaf of Lucia’s famous cracked wheat bread, a minted fruit salad, and a classic dessert, such as the Budapest Bundt cake, and you’re eating like a customer in a five-star restaurant—except you can do it while surfing the Internet looking for new knobs for your stove. 1432 W. 31st St., Minneapolis, 612-825-1572, lucias.com
 

New Restaurant

Have you wondered why you can never get into Heidi’s, the south Minneapolis restaurant by star chef Stewart Woodman and his wife, Heidi? After all, the restaurant has been open for almost a year, and you’d think the opening buzz would have died down. Well, the opening buzz has died down, but all those first-timers have been replaced by a whole lot of regulars with standing reservations, people who tell Heidi: “We’ll be here every Thursday at 6:30, table 34, in perpetuity.” It’s turning into something like the legendary Rao’s in New York—and you can’t compete with that. But you’ve got to hand it to Woodman. He said he would be happy with nothing but a 10-burner stove and a touchy oven, and he has been, as he sends out dishes like a $13 entrée of cherry tomato “lasagna” with creamed spinach and “Parmesan air,” or sautéed Australian sea bass with parsley purée, sweet parsnips, and creamy mussel foam. Plan well and you’ll get in, and when you do, you’ll experience one of the best restaurants Minnesota has ever had: cozy as a jewel box, tasty as a fantasy. 819 W. 50th St., Minneapolis, 612-354-3512, heidismpls.com
 

Butcher Shop

Walk into Clancey’s these days and you’re likely to find a sous chef from Solera behind the counter offering tastes of his latest creations: pork paté with apricots and pine nuts, a duck rillettes paté, a simple chicken liver paté, or a pork paté with herbes de Provence. That’s a lot of paté for a butcher shop, but that’s what’s happening here. Clancey’s became popular because all the meat is locally sourced, but now the place has become something of a hot spot for young chefs looking to understand butchery. As they work, they come up with all kinds of good ideas: trendy fennel pollen bratwurst; skirt steaks pre-dressed with a restaurant-worthy spice rub of coffee, cinnamon, and ancho chili pepper; take-and-grill burgers made with gouda and ground bacon. Clancey’s is not just a butcher shop anymore. It’s a professional, four-star restaurant kitchen—where you get to be the head chef. 4307 Upton Ave. S., Minneapolis, 612-926-0222
 

Gourmet Market

A lot of critics carped when Midtown Global Market opened: There’s nowhere to buy olive oil! There’s nowhere to buy bread! There’s still nowhere in Minnesota to shop like you can in Paris! Or at least Seattle! That was then. The MGM has changed mightily: First, there were the expansions. Farm in the Market, a wonderful source of local, restaurant-caliber pork, beef, fresh chicken, eggs, and dairy expanded, and now provides one of the greatest selections of local artisan cheeses you can find in the state. The Produce Exchange expanded to offer more fruits and vegetables than ever before. Jakeeno’s also substantially expanded, and now offers a whole world of imported Italian cheeses, olive oils, breads, pasta, olives, salami, prosciutto, and other charcuterie. The final big expansion was the Holy Land, which now has a large butcher shop stocked with things like whole legs of lamb, and special house-made seasoned lamb shish kabobs. Finally, this summer saw the arrival of the Salty Tart. Opened by Michelle Gayer, the current pastry chef for restaurants La Belle Vie and Solera, this bakery offers showpiece desserts like a cherry almond tart shaped like a flower, simple treats like vanilla bean cupcakes, and fresh baked bread. Lake Street and 10th Ave., Minneapolis, 612-872-4041, midtownglobalmarket.org
 

Vietnamese

It took a bit for Jasmine 26, the chic and stylish little sister of the beloved Eat Street noodle shop Jasmine Deli, to hit its stride. Now that it has, the Twin Cities should rejoice. Where to start? How about with an alcoholic bubble tea, the little tapioca pearls zoom up your straw, taking some of their high-octane green-tea cocktail with them: It’s sweet, it’s silly, and it’s grassy in that green-tea way. How fun. On to the food: The flash-fried tofu cubes are half potato-chip crisp, half custard creamy, and completely devourable. The tamarind hot pot is gloriously tangy, and the lettuce rolls are sprightly, light, and delicious. Spend a few evenings here and suddenly you’ll realize: This is a Vietnamese restaurant; everything else is just a noodle shop. Jasmine 26, 8 E. 26th St., Minneapolis, 612-870-3800, jasmine26.net

Business Lunch

Chef Jack Riebel is probably the most underrated cook in town. He shouldn’t be. He came from a glittering background, including longtime stints at Goodfellow’s and La Belle Vie before taking over the Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant several years ago. Ever since, he has been crafting a menu of impeccably sourced local and sustainable foods prepared with lively flair: His lunch offering one day of a Caribbean take on American non-dragnet harvested shrimp was extraordinary—perfectly grilled lobster-sweet shrimp paired with a local sweet corn relish, all of it given sharp counterpoint by a fiery coconut cream sauce. And his Cobb-salad burger is nine kinds of perfect. If the food wasn’t draw enough—and it is—the Dakota is on the skyway, it’s priced to be competitive, the service staff is professional and quick, and the menu has a something-for-everyone friendliness. 1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, 612-332-1010, dakotacooks.com
 

Brunch

At night at Café Maude, the must-order dish is the house-cut fries with cheese fondue. If you sit in the back, you can watch orders of the golden-brown beauties fly through the kitchen doors. So here’s some hot news: You don’t have to wait for the sun to go down to get these spud-made gems. You can get them at Café Maude’s estimable brunch. Served Tuesday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and weekends from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Café Maude’s brunch has more than just those potatoes. It has another killer potato application: fried, crispy discs of new potatoes served with chives and grated Parmesan. There’s also a guaranteed hangover killer: chorizo crumbles sautéed with scallions, then piled onto potatoes with a fried egg as a sort of deconstructed hash. Add a Bloody Mary, a strawberry-spiked Tom Collins, or a non-alcoholic ginger mojito and you’ve got a brunch to make your hard-fought week seem well worth it. If potatoes six ways are not your bag, know that Maude has healthy offerings, too, like steel-cut oatmeal or salads. Of course, if you know buzzy, sexy Café Maude, you know you’re probably going to wait to get in. But let’s look for the silver lining: Bring a newspaper and time will soon see you both well-informed and well-fed. 5411 Penn Ave. S., Minneapolis, 612-822-5411, cafemaude.com
 

Thai

The phrase “á la minute” in cooking refers to the practice of making things at the last second, usually because to make the food in question any earlier would lead to a degradation of flavor. Of course, cooking á la minute is a hassle, which is why so many restaurants don’t really cook á la minute. They boil noodles in advance, chop cilantro in the afternoon, and so on. Not so at Naviya’s Thai Kitchen, the unlikely Thai restaurant next to the water tower in Richfield that uses every possible last minute technique. The result: Herbs in the Thai grilled-beef salad (Yum Nue) dance in their dressing of just-squeezed lime juice as if they were plucked from the garden moments ago; or a pad Thai that’s a beauty of buoyant, just-cooked noodles, earthy, fresh-toasted peanuts and lots of fresh lime juice. If you’ve got a minute, this á la minute kitchen will win your heart. 6345 Penn Ave. S., Richfield, 612-861-2491, naviyasthaikitchen.biz
 

French Restaurant

A French brasserie is a restaurant with rules, much like a sonnet is a poem with rules. There must be raw oysters, there must be sparkling glasses of French wine to wash down said oysters. There must be brasserie classics like pork rillettes, steak au poivre, choucroute garnie, and profiteroles. There must be bustle and hustle and big-city style. St. Paul’s Meritage has all of this and more. Like proudly Midwestern farm-driven offerings such as bright-green new-pea pancakes, Wisconsin rabbit with spring vegetables, and Iowa lamb. Like waiters who are good, busy, friendly, efficient—but never too cozy. Chef and owner Russell Klein is proud of his restaurant’s connection to those French rules: “One of the things I love about working in a brasserie is the connection as a chef you have to the past,” he says. “When I look at the French restaurants I worked at in New York, like La Caravelle, I can trace my culinary lineage all the way to Escoffier.” 410 St. Peter St., St. Paul, 651-222-5670, meritage-stpaul.com

Dining Experience

La Belle Vie has been the best restaurant in Minneapolis for a few years now, which leads a lot of people to assume that there isn’t anything new about it, or that they can ignore the place, since they’ve already been. Actually, those assumptions are untrue. If anything, La Belle Vie is now better than it was when it opened. It has a senior team of employees who have been working there so long that they’re doing what they do in a sort of elemental, effortless, utterly confident way. Consider Mark Roberts, for instance, who is arguably the best server in the Twin Cities. He greets each table with a manner half suave, half getting-things-done, with a deep knowledge of everything on the menu, and everyone in the room. Brett Stickerz, the man who brings each dish to the table and announces its ingredients, has, over time, evolved a unique style: He combines a sort of “let’s get ready to rumble” enunciation with a just-the-facts brevity, which allows for the least possible amount of interruption to a diner’s conversation. Recognizing that people in La Belle Vie’s main room have come to do some serious dining, sommelier Bill Summerville has introduced a “sommelier’s wine flight,” which, though only $15 more than the ordinary wine flight, brings in a wealth of rarities such as micro-estate champagne. It also introduces some historically driven pairings that most diners would never think to try on their own, such as dry Amontillado sherry paired with a Spanish-inspired soup of clams, chorizo foam, and white asparagus garnished with smoked char roe. Of course, the professionalism on display in the front of the house would mean little if the food didn’t dazzle. It does. A recent visit revealed, on the tasting menu, a poussin quarter with skin as crisp as a potato chip and meat as tender as flan, combined with an eggplant purée as silky as satin mist—the meat and silk of the main ingredients giving counterpoint and strength by smoky cubes of house-cured pork belly and bitter broccoli raab. It was a composition in perfect balance, with each element staking out a far point equal in opposition to its counterpoint, like some kind of star. Although the guiding force at La Belle Vie has always been chef and owner Tim McKee, the person leading the kitchen most of the time these days is Mike DeCamp, whom everyone calls “Young Chef.” Young Chef’s style tends to present McKee’s dishes in a slightly more understated way than McKee does, which makes the food feel more comfortable and tilts the experience a little more toward the diner, where it should be. A lot of people tend to think that restaurants are eternal things, like rock monuments: They open, and forever so they shall be. Nothing could be farther from the truth. They’re actually more like sports teams, made up of people with various strengths and weaknesses. They have high points, good seasons, periods about which one can look back in retrospect and say: That was when it was at its best. You should have been there. That is the moment La Belle Vie is having now. 510 Groveland Ave., Minneapolis, 612-874-6440, labellevie.us
 


Chocolate

COCOA BEANS THAT DON'T GROW HERE, BUT THAT DOESN'T PREVENT A THRIVING CHOCOLATE SCENE

Chocolate Bar

Colin Gasko of Rogue Chocolatier is one of a handful of independent chocolate manufacturers in the United States. He sources beans from places such as Madagascar and the Dominican Republic, and, using machines he has either made from scratch or modified from their original purpose, he turns them into single-estate chocolate bars that have as much character as fine wines. Available at Surdyk’s

Chocolate Truffles

Turning chocolate into truffles is a real skill, and no one understands artful exteriors and flavorful interiors like BT McElrath, a former chef at the New French Café whose truffle assortment offers an astonishing array of sophisticated flavors. The passion-fruit truffle is tart and bright, the kaffir lime is dusky and haunting, and the chile-limon is like a firework, all sizzle and charm. Available at Kowalski’s
 

Chocolate Cookie

A chocolate cookie for dark-chocolate lovers, the dark-as-night “Bittersweet” cookie from Rustica Bakery is made with lots of deep dark French cocoa and chocolate-bar worthy chocolate chips. It’s as potent as coffee, and more chocolatey than a brownie. Tuck one into your sweetheart’s lunch box and they’ll know you love them. 816 W. 46th St., Minneapolis, 612-822-1119, rusticabakery.com
 

Chocolate Sauce

Good chocolate sauce is one of the most brilliant things you can keep in your pantry—it turns even orange slices into dessert. River Chocolate Company makes what may be the country’s best, combining chocolates from Venezuela, Belgium, and lots of other places with premium ingredients, such as Vietnamese cinnamon and organic Wisconsin cream. Available at Whole Foods
 


Curry

HOT, SPICY, TART, AND TANGY—THE MOST UNIQUE AND AUTHENTIC VERSIONS IN TOWN

Rendang

Rendang is a dry curry made with belacan, a Malaysian shrimp paste that gives a winey, unidentifiable depth to meat. Try the beef rendang at Peninsula Malaysian and you’ll receive a plate of beef cubes that look a little like they’ve been dipped in sauce and left to dry, each one is tender and echoes with potent, jerky-like depths. 2608 Nicollet Ave. S., Minneapolis, 612-871-8282, peninsulamalaysiancuisine.com
 

Caribbean

Harry Singh descends from Indians who settled on the island of Trinidad, and both his lamb curry and his chickpea and potato curry are weighty, savory complexities that echo with Caribbean influences. Try the roti dhalpouri, which is served in pigeon-pea stuffed flatbread. Add a little hot sauce and a little cooling anchar, and you’ve got a meal that changes with every bite. 2653 Nicollet Ave. S., Minneapolis, 612-729-6181, harrysinghs.com
 

Laksa

Laksa is a sort of curry soup that reflects the unique trade-route-crossroad that is Singapore. At Satay at 2 Go, it incorporates turmeric, from India, lemongrass (popular in southeast Asia), Malaysian coconut milk, and many more elements into a whole that is so vibrantly perfumed, so graceful, so yummy that you’ll want to guzzle your takeout soup straight from the container. 6670 150th St. W., Apple Valley, 952-891-8551, satay2go.com
 

Vegetarian

One secret to judging the quality of Indian curries: Can you see any whole mustard seeds? Good Indian cooks often cook whole mustard seeds in a bit of oil as they begin a dish, just as Western cooks sauté a bit of garlic. You see plenty of mustard seeds in Bombay 2 Go’s painstakingly handmade, vibrantly flavored, and unbelieveably cheap vegetable curries. 840 Central Ave. NE, Minneapolis, 612-788-4571, bombay2deli.com
