Anyone that knows me here, knows that my wife and I are total foodies, and really love our underrated food and drink scene in the Twin Cities.  We may not get the recognition of New York, LA, or Chicago, but we do get one big benefit in the fact that WE’RE HERE, and don’t have to necessarily pay those mega city prices.  Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had some 5-6 course chef’s dinners with wine pairing that can rival a mortgage payment J

But we seriously have some gems in the region.  Great spots that can offer affordable, fine dining, multi course meals with wine/beer pairings, and some great dive atmospheres that still bring some serious quality in their food.  I thought this would be a great space to share some of our favorites. 

You won’t hear me talking about any major chains or anything.  Nothing wrong with that, I get a Buffalo Wild Wings craving every so often.  But we really focus on the small, independent restaurants and bars, places people just might not know about.  These are places that need our help now more than ever, and I’d like to bring a bit of light to those establishments!

As I’m doing this, I’d sure love to hear your comments on the places I’m blogging about, and even more so, your suggestions on places you like to frequent!  Some of our favorite spots started out a recommendation, and have now been a regular staple in our lives. 

As this is my real estate site I'll of course be adding some market stats and tips as well.  Some national averages VS local numbers, local housing events, things like that.  Like I said in my Facebook video, we live in that sweet spot where Dakota, Ramsey, and Washington counties are just a few minutes apart from each other, so that's where the focus will be.  However if you wanted to see some stats in your neighborhood, or your home, just say the word.

But that's the story!  This will be a monthly blog at the 1st of every month (maybe the 2nd or 3rd, we’ll see, life gets in the way sometimes).  So keep an eye out next week for April's stop #1 on this journey!  Thanks for listening!

I grew up in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis. I remember as a child sitting in the backseat while my parents drove around some of the higher end neighborhoods of the Twin Cities, just to look at ....
