January 28 Morning Roundup

The Strib has the story behind Sauce Spirits & Soundbar’s busted window [via bring.mn], Rick Nelson likes many aspects of OM other than the plus-sized side dishes (“resigned nods to Minnesota tastes”) and the decor (“a vast, gloomy, generically decorated basement”), there’s a hell of a lineup over at the soon-to-open Haute Dish, a Fitger’s Brewhouse beer called the 90999 Pils that’s raising money for Haiti, Mecca presents five things she’s loving about the local food scene (two of which are dishes from Subo), Teddy loves the Rachel at Bad Waitress, Iggers joins the growing outraged torch-wielding mob of villagers storming Piccolo in protest of its tiny tiny portions, Rachel Hutton calls the proposed Northeast Pierogi sculpture “an awful metal lump” (the evidence appears to be on her side), and a good rundown of upcoming area restaurant openings.
