The August Hit List: 112 Eatery, Josefina, Duke’s on 7, and More


The Twin Cities have definitely gotten their dinner-and-a-drink groove back. Go out any night of the week and you’ll feel the energy: bars are standing-room only, restaurants are once again filled with the din of conversation, and patios are now the hottest real estate in town.

Specifically: Favorites like 112 Eatery and Surly Beer Hall have returned after a hiatus, while a handful of more-recently opened spots, including Josefina, Duke’s on 7, and Margie’s Kitchen + Cocktails, are creating buzz in the suburbs. Oh, the places you’ll go with this month’s Hit List!
