Top Attractions in Des Moines
Des Moines' food scene
Des Moines has undergone a dining transformation, the kind that happens one kitchen at a time, until residents look up and say, "Wow! Things have changed." More than 850 restaurants across the city cater to every taste, including Thai, Japanese, French and authentic Mexican cuisine. Popular spots include Centro for contemporary Italian cuisine (515/248-1780; centrodesmoines.com); Bistro Montage with classic French dishes (515/557-1924; bistromontage.com); and, in downtown's ever-hipper East Village, Miyabi 9, with some of the city's best sushi (515/288-8885).
