Restaurants in Saint Paul, MN

Separated by the Mississippi River, St. Paul and Minneapolis have different culinary personalities. Minneapolis is bolder, crazier, and more extreme. St. Paul, while no weak sister, tends to be a place where tradition matters more. Not that there’s anything staid about such grand bakeries as Cafe Latte and Bread & Chocolate, but good as their goods are (turtle cake at Cafe Latte is celestial; caramel rolls at Bread & Chocolate are benchmark-elegant), there’s nothing extravagant about them. St. Paul is home to one of the most stunning classical diners in the Midwest — Mickey’s Dining Car, where hash browns O’Brien style are a legacy of yore; and it’s also the place to wallow in the goodness of Minnesota’s State Fish, the walleye. That’s at Tavern on Grand, where the menu includes walleye fillets and sandwiches, walleye cakes, and walleye egg rolls.
