The Purple Onion Food Review: 36 of 52

As part of my New Year's Resolution to try 52 new restaurants, diners, coffee shops and bakeries during 2009, I present the following review.

The Purple Onion

1301 University Ave. SE
Minneapolis, MN

Who I Went With

What I Ate
Maple Dijon Salad: Romaine lettuce, dried cherries, toasted walnuts, and Feta cheese tossed in a Maple Dijon Dressing.

Roast Beef Sandwich: Tender sliced roast beef served on grilled Ciabatta bread with lettuce, tomato, melted Swiss cheese, and horseradish aioli.

Would I Go Back

Worth the Price
Very much. The decor was great and the food was wonderful. The maple Dijon salad was the best I've tasted on this journey of food! I would go back just for the salad.

That salad does look awesome! After all the freaking Halloween candy I've been eating the past week I think I need to go on a salad only diet for a while and I'd like to start with one of those.
