At his Warehouse District people magnet, chef/owner Isaac Becker does beautiful work with such high-brow fare as sea scallops with wild mushrooms and seared ahi tuna with chimichurri sauce. But don't miss his great takes on basic bar grub: the sweet-and-sour crab salad, cold cuts-pickles plate, bacon-harissa sandwich, one of the Twin Cities' best burger. Reservations a must; be sure to ask for a main-floor table. The restaurant was the Star Tribune's 2005 restaurant of the year. Becker is a 2008, 2009 and 2010 nominee for Best Chef: Midwest by the James Beard Foundation Awards.
