Cafe Bonxai = Art, Food, Design!!!
Okay... So I was also looking for art and design in the local metro. But, I was on a bus back from the Center of Hmong Arts and Talent (CHAT) when I passed Cafe BonXai, a Hmong owned authentic cuisine of French, Italian, and Thai with the spices of Hmong chili sauce. After I got back to my room, I researched online in the journals and news from local newspaper to the website blogs. Here are two articles from local news on Cafe BonXai:

MPLS ST.Paul Magazine: http://www.mspmag.com/dining/restaurantreviews/69161.asp
This image is from the website above.
There are many more articles written on Cafe BonXai however, the interesting part of Cafe BonXai is not only the food, but the interior design. As the articles commented on Cafe BonXai's interior design puts a different spin in local cuisine on University Avenue. The cool blue with smooth color contrast walls brings a different atmosphere to the customers and the environment.
Personally I've been to Cafe BonXai once and fell in love with the place. Not only is it a place of classic and contemporary, but the location also sets a motion in changing for the good and claiming it's own identity in the cuisine and local art on University Ave.
