Transit Oriented Development
Running from the Mississippi River to Lake of the Isles, Lake Street is a complex, colorful thoroughfare that showcases the city's immigrant/ethnic soul. Here Schatzlein's, a venerable horse-tackle store and Ingebretsen's, one of Minneapolis' only remaining Scandinavian grocery and gift shops, share the sidewalk with taquerias, panaderias, Latin record stores, and Somali souqas (markets). Near Patrick's Cabaret, a home for edgy performance art, there's fine Indian and Japanese fare at Gandhi Mahal and Midori's Floating World, and farther west two of the city's most ambitious marketplaces, the multicultural Midtown Global Market and the very Latin American Mercado Central, add their energy to the street.
