Maine lobster with celery root gratin and saffron vanilla emulsion at Meritage
St. Paul's best French brasserie, located in the historic Hamm Building, is a real charmer. Chef-owner Russell Klein and his wife, Desta, set out to capture the feel and the flavors of an urbane French dining experience, and they've done a superb job. From escargots and foie gras to the authentic cheese cart, you'll feel like you're in Paris. Don't forget to try a fresh absinthe cocktail in the new oyster bar area.
