Here is Fogo's website. I know I have done large groups there and it does work very well and the food is great. I mean it is all various cuts of meat....and a salad. Price is reasonable for a nice meal out. If you make reservations very early Bar La Grassa is probably the best pasta in town and is very affordable! Only issue is it can be tough to get a table in Friday's and Saturday's.
Swanky look up the Grand Hotel in St. Paul, Graves 601 in Minneapolis, or the "W" also in Minneapolis. All are online. The "W" is in the historic Foshay tower downtown. Otherwise there are the Marriot, Marquette, Hyatt, and Ramada downtown are all very nice and good access to the whole twin cities area. I have stayed at the Graves and Ramada for business even though I am in town and would recommend either. The "W" has nice bars with the Living Room and Prohibition. Hope that helps......

Yeah, lets stay away from downtown. I was at the Crown Plaza in Egan last year and that was pretty nice as I recall. I was there the year before as well, but can't remember the name of the place. It was really nice as well and about in the same vicinity. Both where $55 - $85 a night as I recall.
