The Twin Cities offer a rich diversity of restaurants. There are a number of delicious options within walking distance of the RiverCentre and Crown Plaza. The city of Saint Paul historically attracted Irish immigrants and has a number of Irish pubs and restaurants. Italian, Mexican, Vietnamese, Japanese, and Thai restaurants are also close; as are upscale restaurants, cafes, and hamburger joints. The Twin Cities’ Hmong, Somali, and other cultures further flavor dining choices. Expand your restaurant options beyond downtown Saint Paul by starting or ending your field trip or outing with a meal.
Rather than us highlighting particular restaurants and pubs, we encourage you to visit the Minneapolis St Paul Magazine 2012 Best Restaurants Readers Poll. The poll has categories for best service, Twin Cities institutions, neighborhood cafes, farm-to-the-table, bar dining, beer selection, and more.
