BLG is one of the best restaurants in the Twin Cities. Highly recommend their many variations of bruschetta. Also service is exceptional. Tom is a seasoned bartender and he mixes a fabulous drink while making you feel like family—amazing serve!

Very pretty restaurant with great service and food. We did not have a reservation and were able to be seated at a table at the bar. The table was a bit small for four of us but the food and atmosphere made up for that.

We were there on a very busy night. Yet the food and service could not have been better. It was positively excellent. Crowded place but somehow the servers make you feel it’s just you!!! Go!
