Mission American Kitchen & Bar
Minneapolis, MN 55402
City Pages' Description
Mission American Kitchen occupies the old Aquavit space in the IDS Center, and it's a very likable, plain American restaurant that, if you can imagine such a thing, sort of splits the difference between a businessman's expense-account destination, a 1960s cocktail party, a soul-food shack, and a place your wife will find acceptable on your anniversary. For the ladies, Mission offers attractive lighting, a classy decorating scheme of cinnamon and terra cotta, a lovely wine list, and fresh oysters. For the expense-account crowd, Mission offers comfort foods tailored to the most crotchety elderly client (roasted chicken and scotch) or most rambunctious new hire (barbecued ribs and a beer). The dimensions of 1960s cocktail party can be uncovered once you set some creamy deviled eggs and house-made potato chips with sour cream next to your ice wine-enhanced martini. Mission accomplished.
Tips from foursquare
The truffle wontons are INCREDIBLE. They're cheaper than most of the apps but they're also maybe the best. So good.
Great cocktails and the service is excellent!
Ceviche is great, esp for winter!
Make sure you get seated by the hottest hostess around, Ashley!
The ceviche is great! Even better in your living room. Next time have www.bitesquad.com bring it to you. $5 off your first order with code "FOURSQUARE".
