This year, we took our Best of the Twin Cities feature to the people—Very Important People, that is.
To find the best burgers, doughnuts, and breakfast joints, we reached out to the most influential chefs, restaurateurs, and bartenders. In search of the best salon and new boutique, we quizzed the Cities’ chicest fashionistas. And for the best in theater, music, and books, we polled singers, authors, actors, and artists.
Then we tallied the votes and compiled all the kudos—a true testament to the supportiveness of these creative communities.
A few nominations didn’t win but received such high praise that we included them as personal faves. And be sure to check out our reader poll, too, which surveyed another group of VIPs: you.
