i enjoyed my visit to the 128 cafe in st paul minnesota. i had passed by it for a long time and never really had the occasion to dine there.
a business meeting had ended and it was suggested we dine at the 128
it is a cozy place, like walking into someone's house, albeit a very well kept house. it has a very homey feel to it, not like being at a high end restaurant, but more like being at a rich friend's dining room.
the service is good and everyone quickly was attracted to the ribs - the food was very well prepared, and especially tasty. the portions are perfect, not to much, but good. the wine selection was appropriate for the occasion and the atmosphere was excellent in spite of feeling a bit closed in. the restaurant has no apparent view to the outside so it is almost as if you are in a basement.
i think it would be best enjoyed in a special romantic occasion.
