A Heartland Survey and Morning Roundup

Rachel surveys Heartland’s “ambitious complex” in Lowertown and picks her five favorite restaurants for foodies, the garlic growers at Swede Lake Farms get a New York Times writeup (via @dbrauer), why a Shakopee restaurant owner is deliberately flooding his own basement, Chowhounds think the Twin Cities have a service problem, Rick looks at the team behind Prairie Ale House (a post-Town Talk gastropub in Eden Prairie), Well Fed Guide to Life visits Uptown Cafeteria (we just revisited it and dug it), and how to savor brown trout.
