Tavern 23

Straying from the traditional dark and old-fashioned steakhouse atmosphere, Tavern 23 is bright and airy with an open kitchen and large U-shaped bar. In lieu of cluttered sports memorabilia, the décor includes sophisticated references to the career of Minnesota hockey legend Lou Nanne, who wore number 23 during his playing days. The main dining room accommodates 156 diners with seating for 46 in the bar, while 18 can be seated for private dining in “Lou’s Room.” A patio expansion makes space for approximately 86 guests to enjoy views of the Centennial Lakes.
