​Either Nye's or Mickey's Diner are perhaps tied for first place as the most notable MN restaurant landmarks, as both show up frequently in the national press. Fresh off a mention in Playboy, Mickey's was recently cited by Forbes as one of 10 Uniquely American Meals, though the writeup was a little bland, as if penned by someone who'd never even set foot in the place:

Nothing about Mickey's Dining Car in St. Paul, Minn., could be more all-American, from the structure resembling a classic train car, to the Midwestern setting, to the unpretentious attitude, wholesome comfort food, and reasonable prices. Breakfast all day (three-egg omelets, hash browns, endless coffee) or feasts of hamburgers and thick malts are the stuff of nostalgia.
