January 25 Morning Roundup

A first look at the Galaxie Diner in Apple Valley, the current and future wanderings of Tosca’s Adam Vickerman, Cafe Maude’s Aaron Slavicek is out and Burke Forster is in, long thoughtful musings on Julia Child and Bouef Bourguignon, some great new back-and-forth in the comments about Duluth’s Hell’s Kitchen-owned HellBurgers, tuna salad with soul and a side of nostalgia, will authentic Chinese gem Tian Jin fall apart under new ownership or blossom anew? (stay tuned), three things one local blogger just won’t eat, the food at Rainbow is dubbed “lackluster” (including non-hot “hot” food; just had this happen to me at Quang…), and poor marks for the lack of vegetarian options in Minneapolis restaurants. Also: Why not build a statue of a giant pierogi in Northeast?
