Located in the long-dormant Hennepin Steam Building, husband-and-wife owners Ivy and Behnad Taheri have clearly invested a lot in the Tangiers’ decor, managing to create a luxe speakeasy vibe without being too gimmicky. Unfortunately, the team at Tangiers does not pull off the small plates menu with such success, opting for easily assembled plates rather than freshly prepared dishes. Though it would be nice to see a more inspired menu, the location is primo and the get-tipsy-and-dance drinks seem to do their job. So, sink into a curvaceous couch and enjoy a Tangiers signature martini made with Grey Goose, St. Germain, and Prosecco. You’ll get used to the VIP treatment in no time. PHOTOS BY ALMA GUZMAN
