Where the Families Are — and Aren’t
The key to enjoying a good Twin Cities weekend brunch is knowing not just where to go, but when.
Like just about everything else in life . . . timing is everything.
Instead, head Uptown, where the nocturnal Yuppies are still sleeping, and spots like Common Roots and the Egg & I (both on Lyndale in “The Wedge” neighborhood) are line-free.
Scarcely two hours later, those places typically have lines out the door on weekends.
Then, spots like Zumbro (Linden Hills) and any Edina Perkins (good buttermilk pancakes!) are better bets.
Ditto for Sunday Dinner
The same advice holds for Sunday dinner out.
Not so at the Uptown D’Amico’s on Hennepin, where the rush kicks in a full hour later.
P.S.: Unlike some places I can think of in Scottsdale and South Florida, I’m not aware of any Twin Cities restaurants that have a “senior special” rush . . . also around 5 p.m. (if not earlier).
