1. The Left-Handed Cook 920 E Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55407 (Powderhorn)

The Left-Handed Cook boasts a blend of comfort food, Asian flavors, and a dash of rock and roll that they're calling "new American country cooking".

2. Jax Cafe 1928 University Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN (Northeast)

For nearly 80 years, Northeast's beacon of classic dining Jax Cafe's been "serving steaks, not trends." This steakhouse, outfitted out in 60s esque decor and run by a tuxedo-ed waitstaff, is the perfect spot to go all out on Manhattans and Porterhouse and hold court a la Don Draper in Mad Men.

4. Butcher & The Boar 1121 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403

A deceptively large neighborhood noshery with wood stoves and penny-tiled floors dominated, Butcher puts equal emphasis on bourbon, beer, and shareable plates.

5. The Strip Club Meat & Fish 378 Maria Ave, St. Paul, MN 55106 (Downtown St Paul)

Grass-fed beef is the name of the game at St. Paul’s premier meatery, an independent St. Paul chop and fish house, helmed by chef JD Fratzke. Strip House exhibits incredible use of ingredients from small, local farms, but it’s also distinctly unique and almost rustic despite its overall level of refinement and balance. The drink menu changes seasonally and the results are always spectacular, but even the long-standing staple drinks, like the Cobra Kai, are simply stunning.

6. Burch 1933 Colfax Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55403 (Lowry Park)

James Beard-nominated chef Isaac Becker is behind this steakhouse-slash-pizzeria in Minneapolis. On the first floor, Burch Steakhouse serves an eclectic menu filled with raw bar options, prime beef and domestic Wagyu, and a variety of European-style dumplings. In the basement, the Pizza Bar bangs out Neapolitan-style pies from a white oak-fueled pizza oven. Every pizza comes with an exciting combination of toppings -- hey, there aren't many places you can get pizza topped with a lobster claw.
