A nod to Northeast

Athens, Tokyo, Buenos Aires… Northeast Minneapolis.

If you missed this Sunday’s New York Times, you might want to go back and check out the Travel section. There, amongst all the other exotic destinations, you’ll find a guide to 13th Ave Northeast Minneapolis.

What makes this four-block stretch of an old Polish neighborhood worth a national review? According to writer Michael Tortorello, a cultural renaissance. Over the years the down-and-out street has transformed itself into a hotbed of fine food and fine art.

You can take in dance at the Ritz Theater, art at the Rogue Buddha Gallery, shop for antiques at Spinario Design and Gallery, or pick up some old LPs at Shuga Records.

Wash it all down with a drink at 331 Club or the Peacock Lounge and a fine meal at the Northeast Social or the Modern Cafe. Looking for some good cheap eats? Try The Anchor Fish and Chips.
