A massive update on the Brasserie Zentral (etc.!) project; and catch a preview of Brasserie Zentral at North Coast Nosh X at the American Swedish Institute. Madison is getting its own all-night breakfast joint called the Short Stack Eatery. Just after the publication of Andy Sturdevant’s light and illuminating report on the Sunday traffic to Hudson liquor stores, the scene gets really ugly. A diner at Parka reports creative ideas, and (unrelatedly) under-salted fries and over-salted ice cream. Erik Anderson is back in town and ready to party. Angelina’s in the Park opens in Woodbury in March. A nice profile of 45th Parallel Spirits in City Pages (above: Referent Vodka). And mark your calendar not just for the Nosh (Feb. 23) but also for the Twin Cities Daily Planet Sausage Fest (Feb. 5).
