Heavy Table is named the readers’ choice for Best Blog over at City Pages for the fifth year running. Rick interviews Rye Deli owner David Weinstein about the restaurant’s closure and TC Jewfolk interviews Rye critic Andrew Zimmern. (Here are our takes on Rye: a sunny initial review and an attempt to interpret all the critical furor, both positive and negative.) Lake Superior Flavors is featured on MPR (our own Becca Dilley files a narrated slideshow), on The Current, and in the Star Tribune. Well Fed Guide to Life heads out to Digby’s. A number of Minnesota breweries did well at the World Beer Cup. And Irony or Mayo does a fish fry and old fashioned tour on the street I (practically) grew up on: Monroe Street in Madison.
