The Hit ListMinneapolis

The July Hit List: Barrio Lowertown, Martina, Guacaya Bistreaux, and More


The Twin Cities are in the midst of summer, and it shows. The lake areas are thick with people, enjoying the extra hours of daylight and balmy nights on bike, on foot, on paddleboat. Music festivals abound. And patios overflow with those unwilling to spend more time than necessary indoors.

As if on cue, Resy’s Hit List is here with some guidance. As you know, each month we bring you our picks of 10 restaurants we love, the spots you need on your dining radar right now. Some may be familiar; hopefully a couple will surprise you.

So, let’s not overlook the riot of opportunity this July, with café seating taking over sidewalks (Barrio Lowertown), tables with a view getting snapped up early (Owamni by the Sioux Chef, Louis Ristorante), and lakeside decks solidifying their status as the place to be (6Smith). This month’s Hit List will help you find just your spot.
