Restaurant review: New in the neighborhood

Add an underused corner of a famous pizzeria, a local foods-minded chef and an affordable breakfast-lunch-dinner menu. The result: St. Paul's Twisted Fork Grille. Is it a chain in the making?

Thanks for the great idea. We like the fresh-squeezed orange juice. I'll even help with the flapjacks.

It's ok to take your kids out to eat once in a while. Though I understand if your parenting has resulted in kids which are not fit for public.

Looks like they might need some help with plate presentation, and portion amounts. Is it a scallop dish or polenta with side of scallops? The big glob of sauce (Ketchup?), could be presented with some creativity. Great concept, looks like some fine tunng is a must for the look of the dishes. Nice presentation of the beet salad though.

Yay, another new St. Paul restaurant option. Between the Bulldog, Barrio, Bin wine bar, the new expanded Heartland, Faces Mears Park, the expanding Meritage, Brasa, and a few other new ones up on Grand, we have a lot more options now than a couple of years ago!

I've never been to this location but everytime I've been to one the food wasn't very good and the prices seemed high for the quality of food.

restaraunt has decent prices, but the portions look really small when looking at the pictures. If I buy an entry for $12 I want it to fill me up and maybe have left overs to take home.

Hubby and I moved to Lowertown about a month ago from Minneapolis and we are loving all the new eats! St. Paul needs more great casual eateries like these. Also...love the Mr. Steak reference (Many family members of mine waited tables at the one on Robert St.). I truly miss the deep fried mushrooms and cheese sauce...

First, having worked in restaurants, I know they don't want you to take food home. They want to serve you apps and a desert as well. Drinks too. Leftovers are a waste of money. Lastly, that is a healthy portion size. At the typical suburban chain where one gets a giant bowl of fat and salt is not a healthy portion.
