The critically-acclaimed and award-winning Saffron Restaurant & Lounge is the brain child of brothers Saed & Chef Sameh Wadi. Opened in February 2007 and now nationally recognized for their fresh interpretation of traditional Mediterranean cuisine, featuring a seasonal menu with a strong emphasis on the old world tradition of sharing a meal, from the delectable Mezze/Tapas to the unique selections of Tagine and Entrées, you are sure to find something to crave. <br /><br />The bar at Saffron is an ideal location to sit and relax while enjoying unique, hand-crafted cocktails, craft beer or enjoy a glass of wine from the perfectly adapted wine list with selections from around the world. <br /><br />The space itself boast a vibrant, warm and inviting atmosphere, while staying casual and fun, which makes it a perfect location for dinner with family and friends, business associates or an intimate night out.

"The food is very good, although somewhat expensive, as the portions are not large. The appetizers are varied, interesting & fun to share. The servers always treat you well."

Nestled in the Kingfield neighborhood in south Minneapolis, Corner Table features modern American cuisine steeped in European tradition, with an emphasis on locality and seasonality. Our menu changes frequently to reflect the current offerings from our region, delivering the best of our local bounty.

"We liked the original Corner Table but this one is even better. It is a bigger & a nicer space & they take reservations & the menu is much larger. Everything that any of us had was wonderful. The servers had cheerful attitudes. And we loved having a round table for 6 people. It was not a too big table & was perfect for talking with each other."

"Cafe Lurcat is holding up very well after many years. For birthdays, they bring a lovely dessert for sharing, complete with candle. The management totally cares about their patrons."
