Momento is a destination restaurant in Downtown St. Paul that feels – and tastes – a world away.

Executive Chef Aaron Uban has created modern interpretations of old-world dishes from Greece, Morocco, North Africa, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Egypt, and beyond. Beverage Manager Kevin Tester crafted an innovative bar menu to complement the cuisine, featuring an inspired array of handcrafted cocktails, housemade cellos, refreshing spritzes, and bright mocktails. Our service staff is expertly trained to take guests on a flavorful journey, guiding them through the rich and diverse flavor profiles of the region — all from their table.
