On a beautiful spring day in Minneapolis, a group of us sat patiently on yoga mats inside a tiny pen on Tiny Diner’s parking lot listening to instructions before they let the goats in. This is just one of the out-of-the-ordinary things the Bartmann Group has in store for people this summer at its nine restaurants.
Following orders from Chef/Owner Jamie Malone of Grand Café and Eastside, enthusiastic guests literally buried the whole branzino fish under an igloo of whipped egg whites and salt. Meanwhile another group tacked a flatbread and salad, while still others portioned pot de crème into round stemware (known as wineglasses in other locales) that someone had discovered in a Kids Café little used cupboard.
Rome, the birthplace of civilization, is also the birthplace of Fettuccine Alfredo, created in 1914 by Chef Alfredo di Lelio at his civilized restaurant, Alfredo alla Scrofa.
Eataly Roma, a massive food emporium located at the mouth of a metro stop in south Rome, is a sensory overload for foodies.
When the first of the family-style dishes were placed on the table at the media dinner at Café & Bar Lurcat Thursday (May 23), phones all around the table were whipped out and people started shooting. It reminded me of an old TV Western when a stranger walks into a bar and everyone draws their six-shooter in anticipation of a fight.
