100 Favorite Dishes: No. 59, The Tangiers Bianca flatbread

Flatbreads at the Tangiers

Flatbreads at the Tangiers

The Tangiers in the North Loop is one of Minneapolis' newest hotspots, but most who frequent the bar are going for the drinks and the company, and arriving after 9 p.m.

Little do they know that this swanky Prohibition-style lounge also has a handful of tasty small plates and a top-notch happy hour to boot.

One such small plate is the Bianca flatbread, among our favorite flatbreads in the cities. The bread is soft and not greasy -- no grabbing for napkins to mop up grease as is common with other flatbreads -- and the sharp Gorgonzola cheese and balsamic vinaigrette blend seamlessly, topped with prosciutto and baked figs. It makes for a simple but well-executed dish worth going back for.

Take note, North Loopers: The newest night club in your hood actually has some note-worthy food. The kitchen is open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
