Looking for a bite to eat while you're in town for Confab? Minneapolis has options to suit every budget and taste. Here is a selection of our favorites, all within easy distance of the conference hotel.
Dakota Jazz Club
1010 Nicollet Mall
4-minute walk from hotel
Intimate fine dining with live music
A Minneapolis institution (and Confab fan favorite), the Dakota’s menu changes as often as their music lineup. Grab a booth and enjoy some new American cuisine, signature cocktails, and sweet, sweet tunes.

50 N 2ndAve
25-minute walk or 15-min car/bus ride from hotel
Nordic-inspired fine dining
A Minneapolis institution. Head to the main restaurant for elegant Nordic-inspired dishes, the front cafe for an Instagrammable coffee, or the “secret” basement bar for a night cap. (Look for the purple door.)
Wilde Café & Spirits
65 SE Main St
30-minute walk, 18-min bus, or 10-min car ride from hotel
Eclectic café and gelato
If you’re looking to trek outside the downtown area, head across the river for creative comfort food and one of the prettiest patio views in town. (Named for Oscar Wilde, so expect delightful Victorian décor.)
750 South 2ndSt
30-minute walk, 20-min bus, or 10-min car ride from hotel
Contemporary natural cuisine
Elegant dining with a sustainably-sourced menu, including several vegetarian and vegan options. Stop by the Guthrie Theater right next door for a lovely view from the Endless Bridge or Amber Room.
