It's a category that isn't necessarily top of mind when you think of restaurants, but one restaurant here in Minnesota was just named one of the most beautiful in the country.

When it comes to finding a restaurant, most residents of the North Star State are probably more concerned with a restaurant's menu, its prices, and whether or not you can get a reservation for the time you'd like, right? But there's no denying that how a restaurant looks-- or where it's located-- can definitely impact your decision too.

Perhaps that's a small reason why People and Open Table just teamed up to put together a list of the Most Beautiful Restaurants in the Country. (Okay, it's actually part of the celebration of their 50th anniversary, and the release of their 2024 'Beautiful' issue, People said.)

Explaining more, People said, 'These super-stylish stunners deliver unforgettable dining experiences. There are mountaintop chalets with modern rustic touches, glammed-up Art Deco mansions with a view, and mirror-and-glass paneled sky-high stunners.'

Smartscrapers says there are currently around 5,133 restaurants currently operating here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. So which one did People include on their list of the Most Beautiful in the Country?

That would be the RH Rooftop Restaurant at RH Minneapolis. Here's what People said about the restaurant, located along France Avenue in The Gallery in Edina: 'This ultra-glam indoor-outdoor space is a stunning showcase for RH’s luxury furnishings, with a soaring atrium and manicured grounds.'

If you've never been there, here's how Open Table describes the RH Rooftop Restaurant at RH Minneapolis:

The RH Rooftop Restaurant resides on the third floor of RH Minneapolis, a nearly 60,000-square-foot design gallery that blurs the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality. We invite you to enjoy our menu of timeless classics for brunch and dinner, and a selection of wines from esteemed vintners in the United States and Europe.

The RH Minneapolis website notes that the RH Rooftop Restaurant is open Monday through Sunday from 9 am to 10 pm, and has a brunch/lunch menu as well as a separate dinner menu as well.

Behind our own Minnesota entry in Edina, behind the Cheddar Curtain over in Wisconsin, I.d. in Delafield made the list, while down in Iowa, the Mulberry Street Tavern in Des Moines was also included on People's Most Beautiful Restaurants in the Country list this year.
