With four distinct seasons and dozens of international culinary traditions, Minneapolis restaurants offer farm-to-table experiences you won't find anywhere else.
Take the short drive to area orchards and farms, or one of our local Minneapolis Farmer's Markets, for just-picked produce and local specialties. Sit down to a meal by an internationally-known chef at a Minneapolis restaurant. Farm fresh ingredients inspire many local chefs. Last year alone four local chefs were nominated for the James Beard Award - the Oscar of culinary - including Tim McKee of La Belle Vie and Solera, and Alex Roberts of Restaurant Alma and Brasa Rotisserie. Experience the flavors of Sweden, Germany and Poland -- or Somalia, Vietnam and Mexico. From fine Minneapolis restaurants to local fairs, you'll find a culture of locally-grown, globally-inspired foods that nourish body and soul.

We bring fresh, authentic food from Thailand all the way to Minnesota. Sawatdee isn't just about great food; it's about exploring Thai culture. Sawatdee began in 1983 as the first Thai restaurant in the five-state area. Minnesotans were intriuged by the sweet, sour, bitter and salty taste combinations found in authentic Thai cooking. Celebrating 30 years, Sawatdee has become a Twin Cities favorite. Voted Best Thai 2012 by MPLS/St. Paul Magazine.
