Cafe and Bar Lurcat

Café Lurcat and Bar Lurcat are conjoined twins covering substantial acreage halfway between Uptown and downtown on Minneapolis's beautiful Loring Park, across from the Walker Art Center's famed sculpture garden. The restaurant serves artisanal American bistro fare such as a lush salmon tartare with black mustard seeds. The wine list starts below $20, covers the globe unimpeachably, and is available in the bar as well. Actually, the bar is where the Lurcat vision really shines--and not just because of the first-rate people watching, but because crisp, golden, crusty house-made fries go great with so very many things, from artisanal cheeses, to late-harvest zinfandel, to 12-year single-malt scotch, to Rioja, to bubbly, to oysters on the half shell...
