There's a lot to love in Longfellow, but it's always been a little quiet when it comes to watering holes. Blue Door, first established in St. Paul, has opened a sister location in Minneapolis and it's delivered the goods: solid gastropub fare, local beers, and a happy hour that can't be beat. The menu is unique to the location, avoiding a chain feel, and the beers are almost all from Minnesota. There's enough seating to hit this place up for either a quick drink after work or for a Sunday afternoon gathering. Accommodating its residential digs, the Blue Door has signs about minimizing noise posted outside, as it delicately treads the line between late-night revelry and a place to take the kids for a burger — make that a Blucy.
