The chef at The Sample Room in Minneapolis knows what to do with a scallop.
The Sample Room has both small plates and larger dishes. While they are, in my opinion, a bit expensive, the food is definitely above average. My favorite is the scallop with sun-dried tomato pesto. The chef does change the menu seasonally.
The service, however, can sometimes be very slow. The restaurant itself is tiny, meaning a wait is likely, but I have actually walked out after standing in the doorway without being acknowledged for five minutes. If you don't have to wait this restaurant is well-worth trying. I recommend going early in the evening!
