Northeast's upscale take on the traditional Minnesota steak and seafood house hits many positive marks. The rooms are lovely, full of art deco features, with high ceilings covered in tin and wall painted in jewel tones. Erte offers modern takes on classic dishes like brisket, cooked for an entire day, served with carrots and mashed potatoes, or sunflower-crusted walleye with a sweet corn relish. The Peacock Lounge is a wonderful stop for a classic cocktail. Order a martini or Rob Roy. Bonus: bottles of wine are half-price on Monday and Tuesdays. Sidewalk seating available in the summer.
