Chino Latino, a restaurant in uptown Minneapolis, has amazing food. This restaurant is certainly trendy and is the type of restaurant where you dress to be seen. The bar is modern and beautiful. It is packed with people on Friday and Saturday nights especially, so don't plan on sitting or getting served immediately. Reservations are accepted for dinner though. The food is family style; you order large servings of food such as Jerk Chicken. The Jerk Chicken is my favorite :)
All the food is excellent, as are the fruity cocktails (one will get you quite happy) and the towering desserts. The Smores (complete with your own "fire") is one of my favs. This restaurant has lasted and will last.
