We may go broke

Last year when the City Pages Best of 2007 came out, I started a list of all of the restaurants that I wanted to try in the Twin Cities. For some reason, we kept going to the same places over and over again... and while some of them were good, it was time to branch out. We have tried a few of the new places since I made that list, and Ben or I will blog about them soon. As you can see from the list of restaurants on the home page, we have about 60 places we want to try... so we might go broke. We are limiting ourselves to once per week at the most, and we'll have to mix in the more expensive places sparingly.

Hopefully this gives you the reader some ideas for new places to try - while I am not against big chains, it will only help keep this area awesome if we promote independent restaurants instead of going to Olive Garden over and over again!

If you have any suggestions for us (especially cheaper places... ) leave a comment and we'll add them to the list!

But if we don't eat at Olive Garden, how do we get endless breadsticks and salad?

i really think lunch is your best option for quite a few of these places. i also expect to see pictures!

Going off Kate's comment...I noted Mairin's table on your list of restaurants- Rett and I went for lunch a few months ago and their lunch prices were great! (and they had a great wine special one day a week, but I can't remember the day...)

Excited to read about many of the places that you chose!

You have got to go to the Ideal Diner on Central just south of Broadway. :)

This is a good idea...

You should try the bad waitress on eat street at somepoint. I've been going there a lot lately and find their food to be very good and they have a few good beers as well.
