Discussion: Edina Liquor Laws

In November, Minneapolis residents voted to repeal a local ordinance that required restaurants outside of downtown Minneapolis and major commercial areas to adhere to a 70-30 food-to-liquor sales ratio, which affected about 70 neighborhood restaurants. Other restaurants in the City were limited to a 60-40 ratio which was also repealed. Edina requires a food-to-liquor sales ratio of 60-40 percent.

In early 2014, the City also held a similar discussion asking residents’ opinions about adjusting the existing ratio.

What do you think about Edina's liquor laws?
