It’s Eater’s tradition to end the year with a survey of local food experts (editors, writers, reporters, and a select few others) about the highs, lows, and surprises in dining over the past 365 days. Today our panel looks at the neighborhoods most looking forward to dining in 2022. Any thoughts to share? Feel free to add them in the comments.

It’s not a neighborhood per se, but the best neighborhood joint is Gus Gus.
Mecca Bos, Food Writer, Chef, Founder of Hidden BIPOC Foodways
Much of our region, especially Minneapolis, is still suffering from the effects of the pandemic and the events surrounding the murder of George Floyd. It has become. We recommend dining in immigrant neighborhoods such as East Lake Street, St. Paul’s University Avenue, and East St. Paul. Here we continue to find ways for cultural food and the people who produce it to thrive.

eat street. Very lively. I don’t know what people do who don’t want to go there every day.
James Norton, Editor and Co-Founder of the Heavy Table Newsletter
Lindale Avenue, Massive—Heavy Table reviews all 70+ independent restaurants along its 18-mile length, with everything from Thai to Italian to Indian to Fish and Chips (among others), with incredible choices. We offer a wide range of cuisine. Including some of the best dim sum and South Indian food I’ve ever had.

Rediscovering my love for West St Paul and all the restaurants there has changed my perspective that there should be better food that doesn’t have to be in the main Twin Cities. From Babani’s to El Burrito Mercado, West St. Paul has plenty and they do it right.

The North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis is one of the most exciting neighborhoods to eat in this year as it is in a moment of renewal.

Nicollette Avenue in South Minneapolis – all the way down. Also University Avenue in St. Paul! This summer he had a great beef tibu, a coconut croissant and a banh mi in one day. It really is he one of the richest food corridors in the city.
