City Pages's Description
The menu isn't particularly ambitious at Eat Street Social, and that's a good thing. The emphasis here is on competent and satisfying food (try the soups, and the grilled sirloin is a steal); a warm, social vibe; and great drinks, including a soda fountain where you can get an amazing egg cream. With all of that going for it, it seems destined, like its sister restaurant Northeast Social, to be a new late-night hangout. If you really want to get the whole dog and pony show at Eat Street, sit at the gorgeous custom bar outfitted with the soda fountain. The restaurant's "social hour" could introduce you to some fast new friends, and your cocktails will be created personally by acclaimed local mixologists Nick Kosevich and and Ira Koplowitz, whose drinks, both alcoholic and non, are raising the bar for other Minneapolis restaurants.
Tips from foursquare
Go for one of the bartenders' unique creations. The Copper Dagger and 21st Century Cocktail are both impressive-looking and delicious.
Their Breakfast Old Fashioned ($9) pulls off an impressive feat: it stars overly-trendy bacon without being obnoxious.
oooh…also….sit at the bar if you can! Watch the "show" provided by the barkeeps.
Copper Dagger is a lovely drink.
Ask a bartender for his favorite drink... You won't be sorry.
