Eli"s is the primo neighborhood bar for downtown Minneapolis dwellers, the kind of place suitable for beer with a buddy or an intimate date. Housed in an old brick apartment building, the restaurant has a been-here-forever vibe. Nicely lit by wall sconces with walls painted ochre, vintage black-and-white portraits on the walls, and rich wood everywhere, the room has a chic urban feel. And the menu is divine, comfort food with a contemporary twist, with daily pasta specials and all entrées priced under $20. Try the black-and-blue burger made with smoked paprika, caramelized onions, and blue cheese. Bonus: The kitchen stays open till 1 a.m.--perfect for after a movie or show. Seasonal sidewalk seating.
