“Northeast Minneapolis is at the heart of the craft beer scene and Dangerous Man sits right at the center. The lively tap room is the only place you will be able to snag any of their beers. They always have a lot of options available to try. If they are on tap, order a half Chocolate Milk stout and half Peanut Butter Porter. ”

“National awards? Check Best Pizza Around? Check Beautiful vibe? Check You can't beat Young Joni's, I've added the older sister location that may be easier to find a table at sometimes as well (Pizzeria Lola). If you go to Young Joni's or Pizzeria Lola, you have to try the Korean BBQ Pizza, it's absolutely FANTASTIC. If you're hanging out at the Airbnb now, and you're still reading this, why haven't you left yet?? I'm sure you'll thoroughly enjoy! ”

“Maya Cuisine is awesome. The front features counter service, really affordable Mexican food that is seriously top notch (my friends swear by the tamales, but everything is good). Add your own toppings at the salsa bar. In the back, there's a full-service restaurant (with liquor) and even a garden dining area behind that. ”

“I go to Stanley's for lunch during work a lot. This is a great place- not too fancy, not a dive bar, but just right. They have a solid menu of lunch, dinner and bar food. great for family. Secret tip: Thu- Sat there is a fancy drink secret speakeasy called "Al's place" upstairs. If they are open, enter through the photo booth and tell the door guy "I'm here to see some furniture."”
