Hi-Lake is aglow again thanks to the blazing Town Talk Diner sign—now with a stylized “Le” in front of the name, signaling a new era (and cuisine inspiration). New owners Emilie Cellai Johnson and Ben Johnson bring her hometown of Marseille to Minneapolis via classic French dishes, including ratatouille, crepes, vol-au-vent, and tarte tatin. And in a nod to the Town Talk Diner, a forerunner in the craft-cocktail movement, the bar is pouring a full menu of upscale mixed drinks, specializing in the sparkling. • 2707 E.
