With dozens of international culinary traditions, locally sourced "farm to table" restaurants and chefs with James Beard Award wins and nominations, it's no surprise Minneapolis is the winner of USA Today/10Best.com's Best Local Food Scene 2015. Find out why foodies are taking note.
Take the short drive to area orchards and farms, or one of our local Minneapolis Farmers Markets, for just-picked produce and local specialties. Sit down to a meal by an internationally known chef at a trendy, urban Minneapolis restaurant. Taste the cuisine from Japan, Germany, Vietnam, Russia, India or rural Minnesota -- all within blocks of one another on Eat Street or downtown.
Farm-fresh, organic ingredients inspire many local chefs, such as long-time restauranteur Chef Brenda Langton from Spoonriver, who pioneered the locavore movement here and runs the uber-popular Mill City Farmer's Market. James Beard Award (the culinary world's "Oscar") winners and nominees are interspersed throughout the city. Up-and-coming chefs and seasoned kitchen veterans cook alongside one another in every neighborhood. We enjoy our Juicy Lucys as much as our sushi. In Minneapolis, experience a food and wine scene that rivals any large city in the nation, where you'll find a culture of locally-grown, globally-inspired foods that nourish body and soul.
