Whitey's is just across the river from downtown Minneapolis, and its gateway-to-Nordeast location places it alongside a number of bar and dining options. Its decor -- including a gigantic carving of a burlesque-style lady sprawling over its well-stocked bar -- is one thing that sets it apart; it's kitschy without being tacky or overly ironic. But once you're inside -- or outside on the patio -- its wide selection of bar food (including burgers and sandwiches) is what will wind up catching your eye even more.
