TC Foodies hot tip: Monday night is pizza night at Sun Street Breads

Take a very careful look at the photograph, taken at Sun Street Breads, 4600 Nicollet Ave., Minneapolis.

Do you see a pizza? 


Curran's Family Restaurant: Home of the $1.99 Early Riser Special

I drive by Curran's Family Restaurant at 42nd and Nicollet frequently, but I can't remember the last time I set foot inside the place. I'm much more likely to eat at one of the many immigrant family-owned ethnic restaurants a little further north on the Eat Street stretch of Nicollet. But what finally lured me in was the big banner outside the restaurant advertising their Early Riser breakfast special: two eggs, potatoes and toast or a pancake for $1.99, available from 6 to 8:30 a.m. daily.

I love exploring little Mexican hole-in-the-walls, but I have to admit that my two latest discoveries don’t exactly fit that description.


Indochin hits the sweet spot for Vietnamese dining in St. Paul: cheap, interesting and reasonably attractive

If you were to draw on of those Venn diagrams for Vietnamese restaurants with overlapping circles showing the places that are a) inexpensive, b) offer authentic, interesting cuisine and c) suitable for a date, Indochin on Grand Ave. in St. Paul would fall right into the sweet spot.


The Kenwood and Gray House: Welcome to the neighborhoods

It’s exciting to see a new wave of restaurants opening up in the Twin Cities – and especially places with a little personality and style. Uptown may be turning into Updale, with the opening of chain restaurants like Primebar and most recently, Bar Louie, but elsewhere, things are looking up – first Maude’s in Loring Park, and now The Kenwood and Gray House.


Drafts, dishes and moments in time: Merlin's Rest, Tin Fish and the Black Forest

9 p.m. on a Friday night at Merlin’s Rest. I can’t remember the last time I saw so much fun packed into such a small space. Every table in the bar is taken, and nearly every seat at the bar.
