Hotel: Aloft Minneapolis
Would I stay again? Possibly. I booked late and that was the option closest to the event I attended within my allowed rate. I liked the location because Izzy’s ice cream was nearby and had I been there longer in better weather, there was a park behind the property. We did enjoy our walk home from dinner but I would like to explore another area next time.
Lunch: McKinney Roe
Would I dine again? Yes. Service was a but slow but the food was good. I opted for a burrata salad and added beets. It was the perfect meal after my flight.
Would I dine again? Yes. I needed a pick me up after a few hours of email so I walked around the corner to this ice cream shop. I tried the sampler which is five small scoops-blueberry cheesecake, salted caramel, cookies n’ cream, chocolate peanut butter and chocolate caramel. YUM!
Dinner: Spoon and Stable
Would I dine again? Yes. We did not have a reservation but got lucky to score three seats at the bar. I started with the tempura baby squash and ordered the half portion of spaghetti Nero. My pasta was awesome!
