Culinary Adventure Awaits
Rand Tower Hotel offers downtown Minneapolis a culinary destination with creative cuisine and curated libations by chef and restaurateur, Daniel del Prado. Bringing distinct points of view on French cuisine and three unique culinary experiences to the city.
The premiere restaurant located on the 5th floor, this uniquely curated restaurant features classic French dishes and techniques transformed by unconventional Pacific Northwest ingredients. Situated beneath a retractable roof and outdoor terrace, guests savor innovative takes on a timeless cuisine that has been turned on its head.
This 5th floor cocktail lounge looks to honor post-prohibition cocktail culture, while ushering in the innovation of the now. Leaning French in ingredients, but with a sleek, almost tropical flair. The playful lounge showcases French island rhums in large format punch bowls and show-stopping small sips, all served alongside light bites, a thought-provoking cocktail menu, and sultry space to spend the evening.
