Artfully connected to the Guthrie Theater, this is perhaps Minneapolis's premier pre-theater dining location, reflecting the coincidence of proximity blended with a masterful menu crafted by James Beard-winner chef Tim McKee and his colleagues. The interior of the restaurant brings together cerulean, aqua, and a range of other blues and greens that give the entire place a pelagic pallor. Casual visitors hoping to just drop by for a quick bite might move directly to the raw bar, which features an array of oysters, smoked salmon, and ahi tuna poke. Lunch is actually a bit less crowded and might be the best time to take in the ambiance. A prix fixe dinner menu is available before 6pm and offers a chicken breast with country ham or a crisp-skinned arctic char as the entrée options. It's tough to beat the happy hour, which includes $5 premium vodka drinks and the "F. Scott Fitzgerald," a literary extravaganza of a cocktail that features cinnamon-infused 2 Gingers Irish whiskey, blackstrap bitters, and maple and apple foam.
