cheap eats: by dara moskowitz grumdahl

This little wine bar feels like an insider’s secret, partly because it’s hidden on a side street in Minneapolis’s North Loop neighborhood and partly because, when you order something like the $10 cheese-and-antipasti plate, you are presented with all of the fine-dining tricks of the trade that make white-tablecloth restaurants feel so special—the hard-to-find cheeses and crazy-exotic garnishes like mustard-cured candied violets. No wonder this is where you’ll find all the fine-dining professionals on their nights off.

“There's a lot to love about this little can-do Warehouse District newcomer with the achingly pretty views of the Minneapolis skyline and the aw-shucks modest menu of gourmet bargains...”


"Toast is an intimate wine bar nestled among the condos and lofts of the North Loop."

“Owner Erin Tomczyk really nails the wine-bar food thing, keeping her nibble-friendly menu short and uncomplicated while emphasizing fresh, generous flavors at affordable prices.”


"A handful of sakes, beers, and sparkling wines gives way to a well-heeled list of almost forty wines of recent vintages."
