BEST RESTAURANT WAY THE HECK OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE - 1998
Ever see a limousine cruising down Highway 61 and wonder where the heck it was headed? Chances are it was zooming to the Harbor View, where they serve up treats like seared ahi in a black butter caper sauce and lemon tart as bright as the sun at noon over Lake Pepin, the widening in the Mississippi over which the Harbor View looks out. The freshest ingredients are the stars here, and the treatments of in-season, locally grown vegetables can't be beat. Of course, you'll be waiting outside for a table on one of summer's sunny days--the Harbor View's no secret--but with a glass of wine in hand and the sun setting over the bluffs, you won't mind a bit.
