No "Riff Raff" At Tooties On Lowry Ave. N.
Tooties is a low-key family restaurant with good, affordable food, nothing too flashy. The St. Patrick's Day special was corned beef and cabbage.
I was there yesterday with Connie Nompelis, (realtor, historical housing preservationist) Jeff Skrenes, (Hawthorne Housing Director) and Meagan Goodmundson (activist-at-large for the Jordan neighborhood and DFL) having one of our round robin discussions about neighborhood issues. I tried to order a mixed drink and found Tooties only has wine and beer. I was all, like, what's up with that? Only wine and beer?
Connie told me not selling hard liquor kept out "the riff raff."
Well, I certainly approve of that. So I had some red wine.
But then I slammed down the wine glass like a shot. Because I am, after all, part riff raff.
But Tooties is a nice little place. You could bring your little kids to Tooties, and feel very comfortable having dinner there.
