People Magazine says Minnesota's best breakfast restaurant is in Duluth

The Duluth Grill features in October's magazine.

Looking for the best breakfast in Minnesota? Head to Duluth.

That's according to People Magazine, which has identified what it considers the best breakfast restaurants in each state of the U.S. in its October edition.

In Minnesota, the magazine picked The Duluth Grill at South 27th Avenue and I-35.

The magazine sent a photographer out to Duluth to take a picture of one of its signature dishes, its Smoked Salmon Hash Skillet, which is made with salmon smoked at Duluth Grill's sister restaurant, OMC, a barbecue joint in Lincoln Park.

“They asked for the recipe and stopped by the OMC Smokehouse to take pictures of the salmon coming out of the smoker," owner Tom Hanson said.

 "We work hard making fresh, housemade dishes, so it’s really an honor to be recognized."

The restaurant is no stranger to national attention, it's one of several Duluth eateries to have featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, where they made Guy Fieri a pot roast.
