Rick looks at the new chefs of Grand Cafe, Cafe Maude, and Porter & Frye (see also: our interview with Sarah Master) and previews the word salad that is Thom Pham’s Wondrous Azian Kitchen; G Sheaves digs the 2009 Alexis Bailly Seyval Blanc; Rachel does a stellar job of rounding up the five worst restaurant names in the area (ah, I remember reviewing Mysore for MNMO…); Twin Cities Media Alliance is having a “Pick of the Market” dinner with Chef Shelagh Connolly; and some thoughts on why toad-licking and food service don’t mix.
