ROBBINSDALE, Minn. -- A restaurant in the northwest Twin Cities Metro has been named one of the best new restaurants in the entire county.
Bon Appetit magazine ranked Travail Kitchen and Amusements in Robbinsdale fourth in its list of Best New Restaurants in America in 2011.
Travail opened in 2010 in the 4100 block of West Broadway. The menu changes every week.
The magazine gave the restaurant a rave review, calling the menu's offerings "smart, ambitious food that applies elements of molecular gastronomy to the Midwestern traditions of pickling, preserving, and lots of meat."
Travail's co-owners say they picked Robbinsdale because they liked the neighborhood feel.
They say they feel like the "first date" capitol of Minnesota because they host so many first dates.
