Itโ€™s not a magic trick, there IS steak under there. Juicy marinated flank steak atop a bed of mashed potatoes and parmesan cream topped with crispy onions.

The amount of food is astounding to the point where you should skip the appetizers and just order right away when the server gets to the table. But Iโ€™m getting ahead of myself.

For the appetizer course, get Bread Is Life. Need I say more? I think not. A French baguette accompanied with a fantastic flight of honey ricotta, butter and green chimichurri make for a killer opening to a night of exceptional cuisine.

My fiancรฉe had the Miso Marinated Seabass which was by far one of the best pieces of fish Iโ€™ve ever had ever grace my palate. Make sure to order that if youโ€™re feeling fishy.

My fiancรฉe and I love the food truck boom happening right now and happened to stumble upon Peeps at Tattersall Distillery. We werenโ€™t super hungry, so I settled on the Cream Cheese Wontons after speaking to the peeps from Peeps saying that would be the best option.

Now most places you get wontons from skimp out on the main ingredient, cream cheese. When I bit into this wonton, the cream cheese both filled my palate and the wonton in the basket below. It was jam packed in the best of ways. The sweet and sour sauce was the perfect accompaniment, gracing the outer edges of the crisp wonton with the gooey center. This classic has been elevated in the best of ways, a true โ€œMust Have App.โ€

The vibe alone at Martina is enough of a draw to go in for dinner or brunch. It just so happens that they also put out great food and drinks.

I definitely recommend getting a reservation a week or two in advance. Itโ€™s one of the harder tables to get during prime dinner time.

From Chef Daniel del Prado, Colita is a Mecca for high end Mexican fare. We looked around at other diners and were told to order a few plates to share for our table. I highly recommend doing this.

The flavors are diverse and compatible. Smoke is definitely noticeable throughout the menu. And do not forget to order the extremely instagram-able drinks they serve. Pictured above is the Five Suns. To me, the drinks were about as fun and surprising as the food.

Trying new things is something Iโ€™ve been doing for the past few years now, and duck is one of those things on the list. Sitting elbow to elbow inches away from strangers looking for local celebrities, our former governor being one of them, coming to Spoon and Stable is always an experience I canโ€™t begin to pass up.

The team takes care of you the moment you walk in until you leave. From the bread course to the bill, you always feel like one of the VIPs you might find walking through the door.

If you know anything about me, Iโ€™m a sucker for Eggs Benedict. I always get them wherever I go. The lemon-rosemary hollandaise was by far the best part of the meal.

By the way, the name of the restaurant may say Bad Waitress, but the service was prime. Get the Delmonico Eggs Benedict and enjoy the ride.

I love cleverly named menu items, and with it being my first brunch at Chef Gavin Kaysenโ€™s French bistro Bellecour in Wayzata, I went with the appropriately named Dirty French Burger.

Burgers are my usual go-to for afternoon meals, and this one was right on the money. This dish holds its own amongst the other items on the menu. Brunch isnโ€™t just for eggs benedict anymore.

It was my first time here after seeing a lot about it via social media. Iโ€™ve heard nothing but high praise for Chef Ann Ahmedโ€™s stand out restaurant on Highway 55 in Golden Valley.

I must join that group of folks who show high praise because the Drunken Noodles hit my taste buds in all of the right places.

I also paired my Drunken Noodles with the Old Fashioned. Great food, great cocktails, great service.

To dine at Demi is a communal experience. At no point did we feel like guests in a restaurant, rather like friends at a dinner party. That is, if your friends are Michelin star worthy cooks.

This dish was one of many AHA! moments throughout the night. As we sat at the counter, having casual conversation about food, wine and life with Chef Gavin, patrons around us and the rest of the Demi team, I couldnโ€™t help but think, this is what dining should be.

One thing I knew right away walking in to Young Joni is that this seemed like the place to be. A gourmet pizza joint in the heart of Northeast Minneapolis is definitely a must visit. The aesthetic of the room immediately makes you feel at home.

Another thing I know for sure is that bacon makes everything better. So when I saw it as one of the sides and heard from our server that it was smoked, I knew it had to be on my pizza. It complimented the other toppings perfectly. And I know, honey on pizza? Donโ€™t knock it until you try it. The sweet, salt and heat combo in each bite makes this pie a for sure favorite.
