Minneapolis may not seem like such a hot spot for Southern cuisine, but you wouldn’t know that by eating at Revival. Along with offering Southern staples like hush puppies, pork rinds, fried chicken liver, and shrimp with grits, Revival serves up one of the most delicious burgers in the city. Try out the Revival burger with one of the many beer options, from Founders IPA made in Grand Rapids, Michigan to various Minneapolis made pilsners.

Once an actual icehouse, the since renovated industrial-chic Icehouse restaurant has numerous jazz, folk, and rock music gigs almost nightly. However, the varied music cannot compare to the various influences of this fusion restaurant. Cajun, Italian, and Mediterranean influences characterize the dinner fare. If you’re looking for a burger, however, consider the option of adding foie gras to the already rich Icehouse burger replete with onion confit and truffle bordelaise. A more sophisticated burger does not exist in all of Minneapolis.
