Chef's Kitchen closed up.
My wife and I have our 5 year anniversary coming up next weekend. Any recommendations for dinner in the Des Moines metro? Our family is on a tighter budget so I don't want to go anywhere too expensive but don't want a chain restaurant either. Any recommendations?
Shut up. Iowa is the nation's best kept secret and if you spew stuff like this, people are going to flock here and ruin it for us all! :jimlad:
I hear Muscatine is nice.
But how do they compare to 5 Guys?
Tasty Tacos ain't got **** on the 'Tico.
Chicago Speak Easy
Tumea and Sons
Iowa Tap Room
I love me some Taco Tico but nobody touches the original flour taco.
If you like Asian cuisine -- Fawn's, Thai Flavors, Cool Basil are all good IMO.
For Mexican I strongly recommend El Barco (The Boat). You can get out of there for around $30-35 even with a drink or two.
oh no.....I loved that place
Simons 100%....not super spendy and the food is amazing.
Depends on what you like. For sushi I'd recommend Miyabi 9 in the East Village or Akebono. Christopher's in Beaverdale for supper club style. Django downtown for casual French. Malo downtown for Latin cuisine. Flying Mango for barbecue/cajun.
The menu at Cool Basil is about 20 pages long. So many options to choose from there.
And Simon is an awesome dude. Only problem with his place is it's a little small other than that, he nails it.
This is my wife's favorite place to go. Really small place but great food and great service.
At least it's not like almost every Mexican restaurant: 8 pages of the same food just called something different, ending with a page of kids meals (hot dogs and macaroni and cheese) and margarita flavors.
Really though, Cool Basil is legit.
That's always been a tough area too, and it's nice that Cool Basil is doing well.
What's scary is that's twice as much as Minneapolis.
A+. You know your Fort Dodge industries.
There's a Chef's Kitchen if Fort Dodge.
