Memorable meals of 2011

My most memorable meals of 2011 were mostly at old favorites - like Saffron, in the warehouse district. The cuisine is as good as ever, but their big news this year is that they stripped off the tablecloths and have repositioned the restaurant as a more casual not-just-for-special-occasions place. We did go…

Leftovers: Dinner at Sunstreet, noodles at Galactic Pizza, and more

If you think of my brain as a refrigerator, then all the food stories that I haven't had time to write about are like left-overs, sitting there in takeout containers, and not getting any fresher. So, it's time to clear out the fridge...…

Rye Delicatessen and Bar - Digging Deeper into Deli Cuisine


The first thing you might say to yourself when you walk into Rye, the new Jewish deli and bar in the former Auriga's / Becky's Cafeteria location is, "What!  No pastrami! A shonde! (disgrace, scandal, shame)." But this is not just any Jewish deli - it is (though they don't advertise this fact) a Montreal-inspired…

Good news for lovers of authentic Thai cuisine: you no longer have to cross the Mississippi to find authentic Thai cuisine.

Glad to have found your blog Jeremy. You were the Simon Cowell of the Star Tribune restaurant critics. I miss your candid, critical, yet, fair reviews.

Had dinner at Risotto last night--really liked it. Thought the bare concrete floor was an unusual touch, would probably make a larger place too noisy, but it really wasn't a problem here. The place was comfortable, the service was attentive, personable, if not always perfect (we had to ask to get more water a couple of times, but there was never a long wait or anything), and the risotto was pretty quick--certainly didn't need the extra 20 minutes the menu warned of. I had the saffron/sausage/asparagus risotto, and it was excellent. Also tasted the walleye, and it was very rich--wonderful. We were the second group in the door at 7pm, but by 8 it was at least 3/4 full. They probably got one full turn over the course of the Saturday night.
The green bean souffle/appetizer was amazing, the calamari were very good--maybe a bit skimpy on the size compared to other restaurants.
the wine list was nice--no great bargains, but extensive and thoughtful.
We will definitely be going back.
A little bit surprised that he only had the arborio rice risottos, and not the carnaroli rice risottos.

Hi Jeremy,

I just posted a little thing about Caneles De Bordeeaux. Besides my current obsession with these Caneles, I do love Hong Kong Noodle, on Washington Ave, in what used to be known as Stadium Village. They are the only authentic Hong Kong style shop in town that I know of. Excellent broths in their noodle soups. I am shamelessly addicted to the crispy duck. They make congee, several varieties, the plain is just perfect with some scallions on top and the ginger -chicken congee serves as our family's cure for the cold and flu.

Hi Jeremy, long time I know. Thank you for your mention of the Harrington Mansion Tasting re: 8/20. Due to storm and weather damage to the grounds and overall terrible weather that week, the tasting had to be rescheduled. In case of interest, the new date is Sept. 24th - all other information remains the same. Contact jeffrey Fortson at Harrington for further details, or my e-mail Thanks man. Hope the foodie biz has been well. Big E

Hi Jeremy. I did go to L'Ecosse (48th and Chicago, next door to the Parkway Theater) on Saturday night, as I said I would. However, I am hesitant to post any kind of review based on my experience that night. I was there for a big event, and they were serving a limited menu. Even with the limited menu, they were clearly unprepared for the number of people that showed up. The event started at 6pm and they were out of several items on the menu by 6:30, including the house wine (on a Saturday night!). Some of the servers were clearly very inexperienced out out of their league as well. When we finally did order, we waited about two hours for our food, and I didn't end up getting exactly what I ordered. What I did get was tasty and the presentation was definitely up a notch or two from what you might normally expect for this type of cuisine (see attached photo). I felt it was worth another visit on a "normal" night and would definitely want to give it at least one more try before posting something that might be considered a review.

Forgot to say -- the photos shows the chicken pie with chips. I had hoped for the mashed potatoes with goat cheese, rather than the chips, but alas, mine ended up in front of someone else and having waited two hours for my dinner already, I wasn't about to send this back.

Jeremy: Just want to take this opportunity to thank you for TC Foodies. I
have thoroughly enjoyed all the posts of the last few years ( I have been
an Iggers groupie since the early Star Tribune columns in the 80's; I don't
have a life :-)  and am excited about the new partnering and wish you well.
