ATA Annual Conference

October 20, 2021

In town for the 62nd ATA Annual Conference? Check out these global restaurants!

Minneapolis is home to a richly diverse community and a vibrant food scene that reflects the many cultures that have settled here. You may associate the Twin Cities with strong Scandinavian roots, but did you know that the Cities also have the largest Hmong population in the country? While you’re in town learning all there is to learn about translation and interpreting at the ATA Annual Conference, you’ll find many delicious options for Nordic fare, Asian eateries, global kitchens, and so much more! Be sure to treat your tastebuds to dishes, drinks, and desserts from cultures near and far.

Need a few recommendations while at the ATA Annual Conference? These are a few of our favorite local spots for global cuisine!

  1. Owanmi by the Sioux Chef.
    Chef Sean and his team are committed to revitalizing the Native American cuisine and reclaiming the culinary culture that’s often inaccessible in restaurants today.
  2. Lat 14 Asian Eatery.
    Diners can eat their way along the exciting, diverse 14th parallel – without the long airplane trip. Small, shareable plates are inspired by Chef Ann Ahmed’s connections to Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines, and their neighboring countries.
  3. Tullibee.
    When the Hewing Hotel opened in downtown Minneapolis, Tullibee quickly became a local hotspot for Nordic cuisine. Diners can enjoy traditional Nordic flavors that come to life through locally grown and sourced ingredients.
  4. World Street Kitchen.
    Featuring flavors from across the globe – from Asia to the Caribbean to the Mediterranean and everything in between — the restaurant serves popular staples, specials, sweets and cocktails in one friendly spot.
  5. Zen Box Izakaya.
    Chef John, also known as the Ramen Architect, takes pride in redefining traditional ramen dishes with unique and interesting flavors, while maintaining the tradition of Japanese cooking.

We hope you take time to enjoy all that Minneapolis has to offer, both local attractions and global influences. While you’re here for the ATA Annual Conference, we’d love to talk with you, learn about your business, and share how INGCO International can support you behind-the-scenes to drive value with your clients and grow your translation and interpreting business.
