2.Travail Kitchen, Robbinsdale
The next on our list of tough restaurants to get into in USA is Travail Kitchen.
This little Minneapolis hot spot is known for its huge queues of people in front of it, all waiting to get a table.
With a no-reservation policy, Travail Kitchen has people standing in line outside for hours (in the Minneapolis cold winter), just so they could get a taste of the delicious dishes prepared by the staff.
People even bring their own folding chairs so their wait could be more comfy, while they sit around and expect the restaurant to open.
“Travail is nothing short of a phenomenon. People line up to wait in the dead of Minnesota winter wearing snowmobile suits and facemasks, but it’s worth it because of the fabulous, world-class molecular gastronomy food — at corner diner prices.”
If you manage to go inside, you can enjoy some spiced pumpkin soup with brown butter cotton candy, pepitos and rye bread croutons. Delicious, right?
