at Mission, Minnesota
Breakfast last week at this time. I would like this again. #wafflehouse #kansascity
I stopped at the very newly opened Brasserie Zentral for lunch after a meeting. Grabbing a quick meal at the bar means I didn’t see the whole restaurant, but I liked what I did see (the pork cheeks were delicious too).
Perry luxuriates over downtown, Uptown and part of Northeast.
We braved the icy streets last night to make it to opening night at Kyatchi, chef Hide Tozawa’s new Kingfield restaurant. With a focus on sustainability, the fresh fish menu (like the space) is smaller than you’ll find at most sushi spots around Minneapolis, but quality definitely makes up for quality here. Pictured above: battera (pressed mackerel), scallops (perfect with just the juices of the slice of lemon touching it) and salmon. I also recommend the amaebi nigiri and the ramen.
Sonora Grill Longfellow lunch menu
(I’m posting this as a public service since Sonora Grill doesn’t seem to have the menu for their sit-down location online anywhere.)
Fulton Batch 300. (at Republic)
Baby, it’s cold outside, so the Maker’s Mark bottles are all dressing up in tiny Christmas sweaters.
The man in the bug costume is Hide Tozawa, former personal chef for Tsuyoshi Nishioka and the future chef at the upcoming Kyatchi, making us great omakase on Halloween. That’s cheek of amberjack, scallop, tuna belly, some random nigiri, shrimp and deep-fried shrimp heads. Not pictured: lots of other sushi. Hide has made us omakase before and he is always brilliant. I can’t wait to belly up to the sushi bar at Kyatchi.
So this is what I saw on my morning ride around Lake Calhoun.Looks like this bus came inches from crashing through the Midtown Greenway. The two large tow trucks did not seem to be making much progress at moving the bus.
