It’s Valentine’s Day! How about some foods that are aphrodisiacs? You should make them for dinner because it’s Valentine’s Day! What a lovely way to say you love someone.
Simplicity is a major focus for many after the New Year. Less plans, less stuff and less work. It’s almost like spring cleaning but without the chirping birds and spring thaw. Since the days are short and the winter is long, there is plenty of time to figure out ways to simplify before summer hits.
New year, new you? It doesn’t quite work that way, but now is as good of a time as any to implement changes in your life. I’m never been one for resolutions and didn’t make any this year, but I do believe in always striving for better. So, for the first couple weeks of January, we’re doing a bit of a “cleanse” through Bon Appetit.
Bon Appetit magazine has released a list of the top 50 best new restaurants in the U.S. and Minnesota has two — Borough and World Street Kitchen Lyndale. Borough’s known for its oysters, pasta, cheesburgers and even tofu. At World Street Kitchen, a multitude of cultures are represented, from rice bowls, to burritos, and sandwiches.
One of America’s hottest new restaurants is right here in the Twin Cities. “Bon Appetit” magazine ranked Bachelor Farmer and Marvel Bar as the sixth best on its “Hot 10 List: 2012.”
Northeast hotspot Masu Sushi and Robata has been named one of the best places in America to get your sashimi and nigiri on.
Each month, I get excited when Bon Appétit arrives in the mailbox and I search the issue for mentions of Minneapolis establishments like Chef Shack and Rustica Bakery.
