Fabulous food, delightful digs
Plenty of Mesabi restaurants deliver great food to your table, but these four stand out for having a great vibe, too. If you’re hungry for hot food and a warm atmosphere, be sure to stop at The Shop Coffee House in Virginia, The Whistling Bird in Gilbert, BoomTown Woodfire in Eveleth, or (and?) Kunnari’s Kitchen in Virginia. You’ll find specialty coffees, prime rib dinners, seasonal dishes with local produce, hot soups, fresh bread, even Caribbean cuisine in these delightful restaurants!
Make room for fantastic fare
The Shop is known for wood-fired pizzas, awesome coffee, soups and goodies served up in an artistically redesigned downtown building, complete with exposed brick walls and works by local artists. The neighboring 218 Taphouse brings you music, special events and a variety of craft beers. On Gilbert’s main street, The Whistling Bird transports you to the islands, with plenty of seafood, surf and turf, jerk flavorings and tropical drinks. The decor matches the menu: bright, tasty and fun. Over in Eveleth’s BoomTown, enjoy comfort food with a twist, complemented by a rich and delicious wine, beer and drinks menu. Completely remodeled for that classic chop house feel. At Kunnari’s, enjoy homemade soups, salads, breads and pastries, plus hot drinks and more, all with a farm to table concept and great service.
Hospitality, cooked to perfection
Each of these venues has an eye toward pleasing the modern palate, not only with food, but through events like special mulit-course date nights, live acoustic music, food and wine pairings/tastings, create-and-dine nights, brunch, and of course, daily specials. Patronize these four restaurants and you’ll leave well-fed and treated well, too!
