Marin Restaurant & Bar

901 Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55403 | Minneapolis (Downtown) | 612-252-7000

Location Description:

Marin’s aim is to offer healthy options without relegating diners to the salad section (though they do have a number of those), but that doesn’t mean the menu is devoid of indulgence. Whole grain flatbread pizzas are served straight from the wood-fired oven at lunch and dinner. The slow-roasted tomato with scant amounts of mozzarella had beautiful summer-sweet flavor and a cornmeal-dusted sturdy crust that still had a bit of softness to it. Loads of fresh herbs from the garden boxes on the patio, courtesy Dragsmith Farms, one of the local purveyors that works with Marin, finish the pizzas and provide flavor and visual interest without adding any calories. If you’re in the mood for something a little meatier, try the ham, fig, and blue cheese version, which features the same crust but a far more savory experience.
