With all the dining venues at Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Saint Paul Hotel, it’s hard not to find something delicious to eat or drink at nearly every turn. But to make your choice easier, we’ve narrowed down the not-to-be-missed list to these:
1. Grill Charlie’s sandwich. The bar menu at the St. Paul Grill is packed with accessible starters and sandwiches, but the real crowd pleaser is this two-hander, which features grilled medallions of beef tenderloin covered in caramelized onions, horseradish mayonnaise and béarnaise sauce wedged onto a potato roll.
2. Pink peppercorn martini. Yes, you read that right: The Lobby Bar mixes a mean peppery martini of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, Sauza Extra Gold tequila, a pink peppercorn simple syrup and a dash of fresh sage.
3. Steak. With cuts like the U.S.D.A. prime top sirloin and a massive 30 oz. bone-in rib eye amongst the 28-day aged cuts on offer, it’s clear the St. Paul Grill is serious about steaks.
4. Single-malt scotch. The St. Paul Grill’s list is extensive and breaks down the offerings by regions of Scotland for an exacting choice of this stylish drink.
5. Swedish pancakes with lingonberry preserves. As the home of Garrison Keillor and all things Scandinavian, it’s no surprise to see this unique Swedish breakfast item on the M St. Café’s menu. If you’ve never tried it, you won’t be disappointed.
