Russell and Desta Klein of Meritage crossed into downtown Minneapolis with this old-world eatery focusing on fine plates of German, Austrian, and Central European dishes. Besides crazy great orders of spaetzle, a whole section devoted to foie gras, and a technically spot-on pretzel on the bar plate, there's a sense of conviviality and comfort that underpins the sophistication, making it a top dining spot in the city.
