Treat Yourself at our Award-Winning Minneapolis Restaurant
Be prepared for a dining experience unexpected in a hotel restaurant. Lela offers a comfortably modern setting accented by a bustling open kitchen, inviting guests to take a peek into the behind-the-scenes action. Contemporary seafood crudos, prime steaks and handmade pastas are the cornerstone of our creative menu, but you'll find a little bit of everything here, from elevated comfort foods such as Lobster Truffle Gnocchi and classically prepared steaks to dishes crafted with an inventive flair like Yellowfin Tuna served with butternut squash puree and garnished with pistachio pesto. No matter which you prefer, you'll savor every morsel of your perfectly prepared, beautifully presented meal.
