May 24 Morning Roundup

Dara asks if Chef Jim Kyndberg can reinvent Crave and save BBQ all at the same time, an objection to a Minnesota farmer’s defensiveness vis-a-vis animal welfare, a roll-by-roll look at Mt. Fuji in Uptown, the once shaky Midtown Farmers Market location seems more stable (plus: wood-fired pizza by Olive Pizza at Midtown and a new gelato place called Simply Gelato at the St. Paul Farmers Market), a contest offering $495 worth of coffee and more from the Bull Run Roasting Company, Minnetonka’s Michael Foods sells for $1.7 billion to a private equity unit of Goldman Sachs, and will Victory 44’s loss of chefs be a new restaurant named Trevail’s gain?
