The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Saint Paul Hotel features three dining venues: The St. Paul Grill, M ST. Café and the Lobby Bar. Since 1990, The St. Paul Grill has been the see-and-be-seen epicenter of the city, beloved not only for its heritage and comfort menu but also for the service that speaks of old-fashioned, hometown warmth. Choose a high-backed booth or a spacious, white-clad table with a view of charming Rice Park to enjoy classic grill fare ranging from grassland steaks to liver and onions. Lunchtime, it’s the magnet for the city’s movers and shakers (including the mayor) at their favorite tables, while evening draws romantic couples and theater patrons before the show, or post-performance, where they might catch a glimpse of the performers. Sunday brunch is an occasion here, too.
The adjoining Lobby Bar — a clubby, masculine affair of mahogany and brass — boasts an extensive list of premium scotches, along with premium cocktails shaken or stirred by its longtime bartenders. Breakfast and quick lunches are served downstairs in M ST. Café, which also hosts catered private functions.
