Rick gives a four-star review for Burch (here’s our review) and a rundown on four different upcoming crayfish dinners. The old Molly Quinn space on East Lake is going to become a full-scale Sonora Grill location (we’re fans). A new website called lists food code violations for local restaurants. A positive notice for the sushi (and more) at Haiku (pictured above; here’s our review). Summit rolls out batch 13 of its Unchained series of beers — another IPA! Pig Ate My Pizza gets some national TV exposure (here’s our review). The Sunnyside Up space in Uptown will become Heyday. Our editor talks about Urban Growler on the Current. And a new cheese rolls out of the award-winning LaClare Farms dairy in Wisconsin (here’s our profile of their Evalon cheese).

    Love Sonora Grill! But I’m pretty certain The Craftsman is in the old Molly Quinn location. Anyone who remembers the old Molly Quinn patio will immediately recognize it in the Craftsman patio.

    This place used to be an Ethiopian place, and before that, a Taco Bell or something. Anyway, I’m very happy about Sonora Grill.
