Dear Collective Wisdom,

In a couple of weeks I’ll be in Minneapolis on a Saturday night, and need to find a restaurant which can accommodate a party of about ten people. I’d like something upscale, and quiet enough for relaxed conversation and where we can linger without fear of being rushed.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

DK

Actually, I've one more quick question.

I'm leaning toward Restaurant Alma. I'll be staying at the Marriott City Center at 30 South 7th Street. Does anyone know if Alma is reasonably reachable by cab from that hotel, and if so, roughly how much time it might take on a Saturday evening for a reservation at, say, 7:00 p.m.?

Again, many thanks for all your help.

Cheers,

DK
Two recommendations for you...

First is W.A. Frost, located on Selby Avenue in St. Paul. They have a great wine list and the food is exceptional. http://www.wafrost.com/

Across the street is an interesting Russian restaurant called Moscow On The Hill. I wouldn't recommend eating there over WA Frost, but they have a great selection of vodkas. Try the horse radish flavored one. It sounds terrible but tastes great.

My second recommendation is the St. Paul Grill located on Market Street in downtown St. Paul. Once again great food, super atmosphere and very nice selection of single malts. http://www.stpaulgrill.com/

Excellent choice DK. Alma is one of my favorites. You're only a couple of miles from hotel to restaurant, so a cab is fine. Maybe a 10-minute ride? Enjoy!
