Whether restaurants are in your moving research or not, it’s always nice to know what is around your new home. Are you a household that orders out or goes out to eat a lot? Do you prefer staying in and cooking? Regardless of your lifestyle when it comes to food, Daymakers Moving & Storage Company wanted to provide you with a list of the top 10 restaurants in the Twin Cities, rated by Twin Cities Eater.
Lat14 Asian Eatery
Chef and owner, Ann Ahmed, cooks dishes from all around the 14th parallel, meaning delicious versions of pineapple pork fried rice, lumpia, Bangladeshi beef curry, and a banh mi tartine. She wanted to cook the food that brings people together around the table. This restaurant creates small, shareable plates that are inspired by the chef herself and her connections to Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, and their neighboring countries. This brings their flavorful cuisines, ingredients, and cultural traditions, to deliver an exceptional culinary experience.
Travail Kitchen and Amusements
New to the area, the Travail team made the restaurant work through opening at the same time as the pandemic hit with fun, verve, and incredible flavors. They allow you to order family-style meals to make at home or an a la carte selection of yummy food. Once they open their doors to indoor eating again, you have to check it out. The decor is modern and as exceptional as their food.
Chef Daniel del Prado’s Linden Hills restaurant ignites with wood fire, stunning Argentinian and Italian dishes. You’ll find an array of seafoods and meats, as well as other delicious plates cooked over a wood-fire grill. Their mission is to “provide an unparalleled dining experience paired with world-class service to our guests.” If you’re coming here to check it out, don’t forget to order the potato churros or a glass of wine from their great wine list.
Broders’ Pasta Bar
Since 1994, Broders’ Pasta Bar has been serving house-made and quality imported pasta and risottos, focusing both on Italian regional traditions as well as seasonal & local ingredients. Currently, they’re not allowing indoor dining, but you’re able to place an order and pick it up! They offer many delicious options such as signature lasagnas, staple sauces, seasonal ragus, fresh pasta & bread, olive oil & more!
Lowry Hills Meats
Part neighborhood butcher shop, part sandwich shop – what’s better than that!? Lowry Hills Meats have been selling delicious cuts of meat and ready-to-eat dishes for curbside. If you’re looking for a place to stock up your kitchen, you can grab local eggs, rendered lard, dried pasta, and more!

On December 16th, 2019 two brothers and a roommate for life opened Wrecktangle Pizza in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis. The pizza is Detroit-style pizza through a Minnesota lens, featuring familiar flavors and cameos of the bold. Its light and crispy crust is the outcome of their specialty dough baked in a rectangle steel Detroit Pan. If you love pizza, this is where you need to go!
Revival serves delicious food from wings, beer-battered cheese curds, sandwiches, chicken & waffles, and more. You have to try their Southern-style fried bird that is doused in buttermilk, dredged through heavily seasoned flour, and fried to perfection. If you’re a fan of spice, you’ll become a huge fan of Revival. Keep in mind that they have two locations in the Twin Cities; Revival Saint Paul and Revival Minneapolis.
