BEST NEW RESTAURANT - 2000
Like Bonnie and Clyde, like Batman and Robin, like Chico and the Man, sometimes a duo gets things done better. Nowhere can you see this dynamic in action more clearly than in the jewel of southeast Minneapolis, Restaurant Alma. Venture in to find talented veteran Jim Reininger managing the gem-studded wine list and baking the extraordinary breads while wunderkind Alex Roberts sends out plates of food so imaginative, but also so well-prepared and refined, customers are swooning. All you aspiring restaurateurs out there, we've got two words for you: Buddy System.
