Although the Jucy Lucy, both traditional and "cutting edge", can be found in abundance in MSP, the three classics are Matt's Bar
, 5-8 Club
, and Casper & Runyon's Nook
. Our favorite version came from 5-8 Club. However, the other two offer far more in the way of character and ambiance, with 5-8 looking more like a generic sports bar
. My early inclination is to favor character since all three offer excellent renditions of the sandwich.
I'm thinking we hit Matt's, The Nook, and one of the newer Jucy Lucy outposts. The Blue Door Pub
comes highly recommended by MSP resident rumaki's husband, and seems to hit all the right notes for food
And don't forget, we've still got The Lion's Tap
for great non-Jucy Lucy Burgers:
The Lion's Tap: The only Burger Joint I've ever visited where the actual food lived up to the menu pictures!
P.S. Donatelli's in White Bear Lake is not out of the question. We have the possibility of spending some part of a day outside the Twins, up in the Northlands. Donatelli's might make a worthwhile stop as we head back south. Too early to say, but you never know...
