Tilia is a busy restaurant in Linden Hills, right by Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun. Seating is tight, the conversations are loud, and they don’t take reservations, so it’s best to arrive early and enjoy a drink while you wait. Their menu is filled with simple dishes that are always good regardless of the day or time, like a great cheeseburger, a fish taco torta, and carbonara pasta with bacon and egg mousse. Tilia is also super kid friendly.
