112 Eatery

112 N. 3rd St.
Minneapolis , MN
(612) 343-7696

Long known as the place where local chefs eat after-hours, 112 Eatery’s own chef is finally getting his due with a James Beard award nomination. There’s good reason: Isaac Becker’s bacon, egg, and harissa sandwich is seriously addictive, and the pillowy panfried gnocchi are generously covered with Parmigiano Reggiano. Reasonably priced appetizers and half-size pasta portions make sampling a range of Becker’s upscale comfort food a possibility as well. With hardwood floors and brick walls, the long, narrow restaurant resembles an intimate apartment; it’s especially cozy late at night. Since the kitchen is open until 1 a.m. on weekends, it’s the perfect place for a decadent dinner after leaving the bars—if you can get a table, that is.

Tip: Reservations go fast, and the most desirable times are typically booked weeks in advance. If you can’t get the reservation you want, it’s worth showing up just before 5 p.m. (when the restaurant opens) to snag one of the few tables held for walk-ins.
