Caribe, that cute little tropical place with mofongo of the day, is throwing in the towel. They've posted a message on Facebook that the last day will be April 15. Plans are afoot to raise money to re-open somewhere far, far, far away from LRT construction.
Y'all . . . Sea Salt Eatery is open as of today. That is all.
Victoriano's is open in Stillwater putting up huge NY-style pies like the I Mush You: portabellas, wild mushroom mix, fresh mozz, garlic, and thyme.
Ze's Diner is now open in Eagan. The space is retro-bright, all sunshiney and clean, and the food hits all the burger, pot roast, and meatloaf points along with a bit of gyro and hummus action to boot.COMING SOON
You all saw the news about Smack Shack, yeah? Opening sometime this summer . . .CHANGES
Mike Phillips' Green Ox Meat Company has a new name. Three Sons Meat Co. will be the moniker going forward. If you want to grill him on what he's been up to lately, you should sign up for his whole hog butchery class in which you will grab knives and break down the beast. Fun for the whole family.***** Gastro non Grata is going all sweet on you. The next installment of the rockin'-eatin'-slammin' show is a Pre Earth Day Confection Carousel on April 20, and it's all about pastry. Kicking you into your sugar shock will be Levain's Dustan Pinlac, Haute Dish's Christian Aldrich, and the Queen Bee Michelle Gayer of Salty Tart. There will be beer, there will be music, there will dead meat for raffle, supah sweet. ***** It might be a lovely weekend to trip it out to Stillwater and check out the eats. If you've never been, why not hitch up with Foodies on Foot, a local walking tour that delivers a guided trip through town to all the local hot spots. This Saturday they have a Bloody Mary tour, which might be the right kick-off to a good day. ***** Grain Belt Nordeast is celebrating its second birthday, and you know how much two-year-olds love a good pub crawl! The brew will be making its debut in sassy new 16 oz. cans at the Nordeast Pub Crawl on April 7. Visit the local bars, do some sippin', get some stamps, and end up at Mayslack's where you can tuck into a warm roast beef sandwich and take a nap. *****
