9. Hell's Kitchen 80 S 9th St, Minneapolis, MN 55402 (Downtown)

In a gorgeously Gothic subterranean space in the heart of Downtown Minneapolis, you’ll discover chef-owned Hell's Kitchen, which is known for its, well, heavenly all-day brunch. Alongside hearty dishes like the fan-favorite wild-rice & hazelnut porridge, lemon-ricotta hotcakes, and the aptly named Juicy Lucifer burger with a molten cheese center, it hosts live music during weekend brunch, plus late-night “rock-the-house” shows Thursday through Saturday that run 'til the wee hours of the night. It prevents things from getting too hellish with painted reminders on the wall to ditch "surly attitudes" and "stingy tips."
