Now that the ground has thawed, the days are getting longer, and we've (hopefully) seen the last lingering springtime snowfall, it’s time for Minnesotans and visitors alike to get outside and explore the Twin Cities. Radisson Blu’s #BluRoutes offers pre-planned routes for runners, walkers and joggers alike that start and end at either the Mall of America or locations across downtown Minneapolis. Whether you’re after a brisk morning jog or a leisurely stroll between meetings, #BluRoutes offers a chance to get some exercise and sightsee on foot.
Have you ever met someone who doesn’t like brunch? Me neither—and I doubt I ever will. It’s hard not to love a two-meals-for-one situation, especially one that incorporates the best meal (breakfast, of course), and the most important one, as we all learned growing up. Throw in a late-morning reverie and some heartier lunchtime fare, and you’ve got a recipe for human comfort.
D'Amico Catering has officially opened Bushel & Peck, the Mill City Museum's new cafe.
An approachble lunch menu, new weekend brunch, and wine and beer options round out the menu. Later this spring, the cafe will fill with fully updated décor; a food truck also is in the works.
Chef Doug Flicker of Esker Grove, the Walker Art Center’s new restaurant, has added mixologist Jon Olson, chef de cuisine T.J. Rawitzer and general manager Kim Tong to his team.
Olson is a well-known Twin Cities mixologist who has worked at La Belle Vie, Ice House and Bradstreet Crafthouse. In 2015, he won the local Iron Bartender competition. He and his friend, Adam Gorski are the co-founders of TRUEpenny, which hosts pop-up bars across the Twin Cities.
BRUNCH, IN OUR OPINION, is the best (and most important) meal of the day. Not only is it a treat, as it happens only so often, but there’s something for everyone. Be it pancakes for those craving something sweet or eggs Benedict for those fancying something a bit more savory, brunch caters to every person’s desires. Host your next event amidst syrup, coffee and bacon at one of these mouthwatering Twin Cities restaurants, and guests surely won’t be disappointed. Especially when mimosas are involved.
