Minneapolis' bar Pat's Tap is a bar that offers a fresh take on food and décor alike, giving good attention to vegetarian food alongside its more traditional burgers, and showcasing just how good sustainability can look.
Recycled tiles pattern the floor and music blares against a steady din of Skee-Ball machines, according to the Star Tribune's Rick Nelson.
Photos from the Star Tribune show people digging in to a central bowl of appetizers and bartenders with smiles on their faces.
Nelson commented that the "boisterous new Kim Bartmann venture is equal parts neighborhood bar and home away from home."
Turkey burgers and veggie burgers are not given short shrift here, but instead are equally tasty alternatives to the bar's beefier options. Nelson noted that these dishes "cater rather than pander to vegetarian tastes."
