Restaurant Interiors

I’m sure that I’m not the first to remind you that it’s Restaurant Week here in the Twin Cities. We have such a fabulous food scene here in both Minneapolis and St. Paul; I really recommend splurging a bit this week and taking in the ambience of a spot that’s been on your list of places to try. Looking for a suggestion? If you haven’t already, stop by Barbette. The French food is superb, and you can count on me to steer you in the direction of aesthetically pleasing interiors. If that’s not a 2 for 1 deal, I don’t know what is!
