Full Disclosure: I paid for this meal with my own money. The opinions are completely my own and I am not being compensated for this post.
Have I mentioned already that Minneapolis seems to be filled with many different local restaurants? It’s true. For each meal, there were several local food options within walking distance, and many more a short cab ride (or long walk) away. After a full day of Summit activities, we were ready to get out of the hotel for some food. Megan, Megan’s boyfriend, Heather, Julie, Danielle, Emily, Elizabeth, and I headed down the street to The Local.
The Local bills itself as an Irish Pub – but definitely not a typical Irish Pub. Aside from having a large beer selection and serving ruebens and other pub standards, they had many other options as well. Lots of different plates made for sharing, hummus and cheese platters, and more.
I started my meal with a glass of Malbec.
My dinner was a bit of a hodge podge of food, but it was a good one. I ordered a cup of baked cheddar and tomato soup with a side salad, and a side of fries. I only have a (not-so-great) photo of the soup because by that time it had gotten a little too dark for decent photography. Also, I was hungry and didn’t want to spend a ton of time getting good photos. 🙂
The fries and salad were good, but the soup really was the star. On the menu it is described as creamy tomato basil soup under a crouton and melted cheddar cheese. It was delicious. There was enough added cheese to make it feel a little bit more complete, but it wasn’t so much that I felt like I was eating cheese dipped in soup.
Taste: A+, all of it was really delicious.
Cost: A, I don’t remember exactly how much it all cost, but I don’t remember it being particularly expensive, espesically considering it was so tasty.
Would I go there again? Yes, if I was in the area I do think I would go there again.
