Re: Most Iconic Restaurant in Every State
I'm getting kind of tired of these lists of best this, best that, most this, most that. Not too long ago there was one on the oldest restaurants in each state list. In Minnesota, Pracna on Main was listed. It is now closed, BTW, as of the first of the year. I was totally puzzled by that one. Turns out there was a restaurant in the building in 1890 when it was built but more likely a saloon. It closed in 1919 with prohibition. After that the building was a mattress factory amongst other ventures but never a restaurant. Then a contemporary architect I knew opened a restaurant and called it Pracna on Main in 1973 when the area was going through renewal and baby boomer gentrification. I think there must be idiots holed up in editorial offices somewhere in places like NYC making this stuff up from Google searches and everyone eats it up.
