The bar at moto-i. Photos by Tom Wallace.

In case you missed it, Travel + Leisure magazine named two Minneapolis restaurant/bars in its list of “25 American Hot Spots” from the November issue. The story focused on hotness in places outside of big cities like New York and Los Angeles.

LynLake’s sake brewpub, moto-i, was mentioned for being just that: the rare sake brewpub outside of Japan. Spoonriver received a mention for its commitment to using local ingredients. Minneapolis/St. Paul also received kudos in the magazine’s online survey “America’s Favorite Cities.” We were ranked No. 1 for having the country’s most intelligent people. Yay, we’re both hot and smart.
