The Melthouse Bistro Opens and Morning Roundup

A (very hostile) open letter to the Lexington in St. Paul, a review of Bittercube Bitters, a gourmet grilled cheese restaurant called Melthouse Bistro is opening in Milwaukee, a visit to Steve’s Meat Market in Ellendale, a review of Summit’s Black Ale, the vintage and profoundly enigmatic Live from Lunds, the owners of Oceanaire need a geography lesson, and a profile of Hook’s Cheese in Mineral Point, WI. (Hook’s 10-Year Cheddar + Buffalo Trace bourbon = the best late-night snack ever created.)
