Argentina-style empanadas and some of the best pizza in town? This place is really one of a kind in Minneapolis. Chef Facundo De Fraia originally came to Minneapolis to help his childhood friend (legendary local chef Daniel Del Prado) open the storied Martina in Linden Hills, and opened his own pizza spot on Nicollet and a second location in the Mill District just blocks from the stadium!
Located inside the Canopy Hotel, Umbra serves bistro classics with a seasonal fresh twist (think Chicken Po Boys and spicy coleslaw made with local produce and flatbreads topped with local cheese from Faribault Cheese Caves) in a welcoming, expansive space that blends warm woods with modern industrial vibes.
While not right next to the stadium, Hell's Kitchen is a must for game day Bloody Mary's. Any pro brunch-er knows that what makes or breaks a Bloody Mary is the garnish, and Hell’s Kitchen truly raises the bar—the Bloody Mary bar, that is. Their Bloody Mary bar spans an entire hallway and lets you go to town creating the perfect personalized Bloody Mary of your dreams. (Note: the full walk-through experience is currently on pause, but the restaurant offers a “Build-at-your-table” Bloody—they'll bring all the fixings to you!)
