City Pages Best Neighborhood (2012): Armatage
Sitting right on the border of Edina, the Armatage neighborhood has quickly staked its claim as one Minneapolis’s unsung hotspots for foodies, families, and fitness, providing a little something for everyone. For the food lover, uber-popular Café Maude offers a phenomenal Sunday brunch (the full menu is pretty good too), Cave Vin brings a French flair to the neighborhood, and just recently, Food Network star Guy Fieri swung by Pizzeria Lola for its appearance on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Armatage has begun to see some turnover in recent years, with younger families moving into the area thanks to its easy access to downtown, as well as to Southdale Mall and even the airport. Finally, the budding community is just a quick run (literally) to Lake Harriett, giving weekend walkers and joggers a scenic route to stretch their legs. Being in Armatage is like having suburban living with an urban appeal.
