The Hit ListMinneapolis

The June Hit List: Macanda, Gai Noi, Nico’s Tacos, and More


After making it through the whims of winter and an iffy spring, Twin Citians are ready for a breath of fresh air. They’re searching for the ultimate outdoor eating experience, a perfect patio, a table with a view. This month’s Resy Hit List is dedicated to those coveted spaces.

Loring Park is sure to be abuzz due to the recent appearance of Ann Ahmed’s Gai Noi and its rooftop Eden. Across Hennepin at Cardamom, Mediterranean-inspired food and drinks draw patrons to the art-adjacent terrace. St. Paul has plenty to offer, too, including a Paris sidewalk café feel at Meritage and a roomy alfresco hang (with barbecue) at Handsome Hog. And out in the western suburbs, an idyllic deck overlooking Lake Minnetonka charms at Macanda.

Show your patio pride in June with Resy as your guide.
