Some of my favorites are:

Ketsana's (Thai): actually in Bloomington, service is unfriendly at best, but the food is great. Get the order to go.

Manny's (Steak): What can I say...great steaks.

Ichiban (Teppanyaki): I love a chef who can juggle knives.

The Huddle (Hamburgers): Delicious burgers, located on Hamline in St. Paul.

Fat Lorenzo's (Pizza and Italian): Good food in an unassuming place, down by Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis.

All of the ones mentioned above by others are great as well.

Duluth's wonderful India Palace has an unbelievably good lunch buffet. Interestingly enough, the former owner of the restaurant opened up another Indian place, Taj India, a block down and across the street. I have to check it out.

Bellisio's in Canal Park is very good, if not a little bit expensive (by small-town standards).

River Room - in St Paul's Marshall Field's department store

Sakura - St Paul - excellent Japanese Food

Ruth's Chris - Minneapolis - get the PORTERHOUSE STEAK!

LoTo - St Paul (in the Galtier Plaza) - food is rather inconsistent, but the desserts can't be beat.
