This cheekily named meat-and-fish joint is the sophomore venture from two of the founders of the Town Talk Diner in Minneapolis, so expect a similarly playful attitude. The dark, clubby digs inside a historic Dayton's Bluff building recall St. Paul's gangster days and make it a perfect spot to sip a sidecar and take in the view of downtown. The restaurant's signature dish is a locally raised, grass-fed strip steak. Chef J.D. Fratzke, formerly of Muffuletta, sources his meat from humane purveyors--even more reason to order the impossibly flavorful braised pork shank. The menu is wide-ranging enough to include foie gras and Braunschweiger, though it doesn't offer much for vegetarians.
