If you are craving satisfying, European style fish and chips one of the best places to get it in the Twin Cities is The Anchor Fish & Chips in Northeast Minneapolis. I judge fish and chips not only by the fish but also by the chips… and BOTH are outstanding here!
Located on 13th Avenue NE, this street is the heart of the Sheridan neighborhood. It was originally developed as a lively commercial strip on a streetcar route in this industrial area filled with immigrants from Eastern Europe. You can still see evidence of its roots in the churches and ethnic restaurants which dot NE Minneapolis. It's a fun fact that the streets were named after US Presidents in order of their election… to help residents prepare for citizenship exams.
Today this area has a cozy small-town atmosphere, with restaurants, brew house and shops such as art gallery, bookstore, bicycle shop, historic theater, and Grain Belt Area multi-use complex.
Looking for a walkable neighborhood? This neighborhood has a walk score of 71 and a bike score of 84, with easy access to downtown Minneapolis. Perhaps even more telling of this urban neighborhood is that 30% of households are automobile-free!
