On our walk from the train to Hollidazzle we like to stop on Nicollet at Barrio for the corn chowder. How’s that for a Holiday tradition? Good beer and tacos too. Cheers

Trendy spot full ala carte menu so watch how that adds up. Small portions but very tasty. Waitress was not freindly (at all) but efficient. Supporting staff was great, changing out plates, filling water etc. Should promote them!

Always a great spot to hit for happy hour prices on beers and appetizers. Every app on the happy hour list is a winner! And their awesome bartenders turned me on to some great tequila I never heard of.
