Salut Bar Américain is the brasserie down the block. Warm and welcoming, with an urbane wit and urban sensibility, it’s an afternoon hangout and an evening refuge. It’s your neighbor with a French accent. The setting evokes a classic Parisian bistro/restaurant. The service is spirited, confident and capably executed. And the cooking captures the freshness and hearty flavor of French cuisine. It’s the vibe inside that sets Salut apart from bowing maitre ‘d’s and sniffing sommeliers. From the welcoming wine list, to the playful décor, to the genial buzz in the dining room, Salut celebrates the French restaurant’s essential qualities while dispensing with the exclusionary ones. It demystifies French food by making it accessible and rewarding while poking fun at the stereotypes that surround it. Salut gives French dining a shot in the arm – while giving the French a gentle kick in the derriere. In this sense, Salut is a dual citizen: Authentically French – but proudly American.

"Was expecting great food and service only to be greatly disappointed. Not the Edina gem I expected. Grilled tuna salad was tiny and not flavorful. The service was painfully slow from start to finish! Won't return"

Urban Eatery offers a warm & comfortable dining experience overlooking the beautiful Lake Calhoun. Urban Eatery's menu is approachable with ingredients that are " Fresh & Local". We've taken traditional favorites & added a twist, like Smoked Duck Nachos, Local Greens Salad. Our Lamb Burgers are AMAZING. <br /><br />January 2014 Open Table Diner' Choice Award<br /><br /><br><br><br />FREE VALET EVERY NIGHT @ 5 PM.<br /><br><br><br />HAPPY HOUR <br /><br><br><br />SUN-WED 4-6 PM, LATE NIGHT 9:30-CLOSE<br /><br>THURS-SAT 4-6 PM, LATE NIGHT 10:30-CLOSE

So Classic They Named a City After It. Business or romance, lunch or dinner, casual or upscale, The St. Paul Grill is many things to many people. This Saint Paul icon features a classic, yet surprisingly diverse menu ranging from prime steaks and thick-cut chops, to succulent poultry and fresh seafood. The Grill is known for its classic bar offering the Twin Cities' finest selection of rare spirits and wines, served by friendly and experienced bartenders who know how to mix the perfect cocktail. From the incredible food, generous cocktails and outstanding wines, to the impeccable service and unrivaled location overlooking Rice Park and near the Ordway Theater and Xcel Energy Center, The St. Paul Grill has a reputation that spans generations. It's the kind of place that has regulars, and makes new ones all the time. Read the reviews, or better yet, ask anyone who has spent time in the Twin Cities and you'll find The St. Paul Grill is "A Favorite on Everyone's List."
