The Churn: Beek’s Burns and More

Becca Dilley / Heavy TableThe Strib profiles Matt Kenevan (of Beer Dabbler and Growler fame). A former WCCO anchor starts a club that celebrates wine from the Central Coast of California. Some love for the irreverent gastromony of Travail (we had fun with their “anti-griddle” dessert). Some positive notice for Copper Pot Indian Grill (pictured above; here’s our review). A serious blaze damages Beek’s Pizza in South Minneapolis. Some background on the newly opened Parka (our first meal there this week was a treat.) Smoke in the Pit barbecue will reopen at 38th and Chicago.
