Take a look back at 20 years of Eat Street at this show celebrating the rich legacy of world cuisines available along the stretch of Nicollet Avenue that runs from Grant Street in downtown to 29th Street in south Minneapolis. With pho, tacos, and wiener-schnitzel offerings, Eat Street boasts many immigrant-owned establishments, and its emergence demonstrates how public and private collaboration, under a clear plan, can have delicious results. This new exhibition is based on a project by Spotlight Oral History and Whittier Alliance. There will be snippets of interviews with the restaurant owners who have helped make Eat Street a delectable hot spot, as well as historic photos illustrating the area’s evolution into a foodie haven.
