Our annual Best of the Twin Cities issue is out and we want you to hit the red carpet with us and toast another year of the good life in our favorite sister cities. Join us on Thursday, April 24 at Muse Event Center as we drink, dance, and, of course, chow down on some tasty food. Click here to purchase your tickets, and read on for a full list of participating restaurants.
Nightingale (Best Late Night Dining 2014) will be serving a spring market salad and Butcher and the Boar (Best New Restaurant 2013 and Readers' Choice Best Restaurant in Minneapolis 2014) is sampling smoked turkey liver pâté on beer bread crouton with onion jam and fresh chive.
Pizza Luce (Readers' Choice Best Pizza and Readers' Choice Best Late Night Dining 2014) will be tossing out some of their famous pies, while Bryant-Lake Bowl (Readers' Choice Best Bowling Alley 2014) ups the ante on bowling alley fare, serving smoked lake trout gougères with cream cheese and pea tendrils, and Masu Sushi and Robata (Best Japanese Restaurant 2013) plates its seaweed salad with snow crab.
Top off your evening of fine food sampling with St. Croix Chocolate Company's (Best Chocolate 2013) artisan chocolates, made by hand using fresh and local ingredients. And don't miss Glam Doll Donuts (Best Doughnuts 2014 and Readers' Choice Best Doughnuts and Readers' Choice Best Bakery 2014) demonstrating its doughy prowess with doughnut holes in blackberry Hennessy, peanut butter sriracha, chocolate and vanilla with sprinkles, and chocolate with bacon.
V.I.P. attendees will have access to all those samples, plus east and west coast oysters from Sea Salt Eatery (Readers' Choice Best Seafood 2014), shiitake mushroom lettuce cups and coffee from People's Organic (Best Vegetarian-Friendly Restaurant 2011), and a still-to-be-announced treat from Parlour. Parlour will also host the official after party, which means attendees will be within arm's reach of our winner for Best Fancy Burger 2014 and our number one pick for this year's 100 Favorite Dishes.
This week is the last week to buy your general admission tickets for $25 and your V.I.P. tickets for $55. Next week, both ticket prices will go up by $5. V.I.P. ticket holders will get early entrance to the party, an hour of open bar fun, and access to the upstairs V.I.P. lounge with swag bags and those exclusive restaurant samples we mentioned earlier. Click here to purchase your tickets, and we'll see you there in your finest red carpet wear!
