SOTC Award: Best Place to Power Lunch—Secretly
You work downtown in MPLS. Your bosses and coworkers work downtown in MPLS. But you need to meet up with a new prospective employer or client or boyfriend on the down low. Most spots you normally lunch are out, but you need somewhere with a good lunch to show you know what’s going on. Enter Zenbox Izakaya on Washington and 6th. Just out of the reach of prying eyes and ears, Zenbox fills up with young professionals at lunch because they’ve got a great menu (we recommend their bento boxes or veggie curry and tofu skewers), quick service, and you can stay in the loop on any big time events they have, like Ramen Massive Attack. And you can get your private business done without bumping into anyone . . . for now.
