The weekend brunch menu features dishes like pancake-battered bacon and sausage and fried chicken Benedict. LBC's five beers are on tap along with a rotating selection of seasonal brews.

2. Kyoto Sushi   
8242 Commonwealth Dr
Eden Prairie

Kyoto is another local newcomer celebrating its first month in the area. For one low price, enjoy all you can eat of Kyoto's fresh sushi, sashimi and rolls along with other Japanese favorites like tempura, teriyaki and donburi. Lunch is $15.99 ($19.99 on weekends) and dinner is $25.99. An extensive a la carte carry-out menu is also available.

3. Spoon and Stable  
211 N First St

Looking for an exciting new restaurant to celebrate a special occasion? Spoon and Stable, owned by celebrity chef Gavin Kaysen, was nominated for the prestigious Best New Restaurant award by the James Beard Foundation. The restaurant's rustic but elegant ambiance pays tribute to the building's origin as a horse stable. Seasonal dishes such as nettle potato gnocchi and bison tartare are based on fresh Midwest ingredients prepared with a classic French touch.

4. Nighthawks  
3753 Nicollet Ave S

The classic American diner is a staple of Midwest dining. Nighthawks, a postmodern take on this tradition, is named after Edward Hopper's famous painting depicting a late-night scene in a diner. The menu features dishes such as the diner's namesake foot-long hot dog, topped with dill mayo, horseradish havarti, giardiniera and shoestring potatoes. Breakfast is served anytime, so don't miss the seven flavors of buttermilk pancakes, including peanut butter chocolate chip and chorizo cheddar corn.

5. The Commodore Bar & Restaurant   
79 Western Ave N
Saint Paul

With interesting new restaurants such as the Commodore, Saint Paul's dining scene now rivals that of "big brother" Minneapolis. The historic Commodore, which once served legendary figures like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Sinclair Lewis, has been restored to its art deco glory. You'll feel transported back to the Roaring '20s as you sip on cocktails such as a Dorothy Parker or a Sidecar. The food is all 21st century, with dishes such as fried macaroni and cheese and seared salmon served with a potato, bacon and sweet pea hash.
