This was before my time – not sure where this one came from either. The first one I remember was from late 1975, which featured the U.S. bicentennial parade floats on the cover (I’ll see if I can find that one and scan it too).

After this Minnesota winter, I could really use another visit to Anaheim. More page scans after the jump.

A Return to Meritage

Posted Friday, February 28th, 2014 01:23 pm GMT -5 in Family,Food at 1:23 PM

I can’t believe it’s been three years since our last visit to Meritage in downtown St. Paul, but there you have it. Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s Restaurant Week promotion was the catalyst to get us back again and I’m so glad we did – I think Chef Russell Klein and his wife Desta Maree Klein may have overtaken Ristorante Luci as my favorite St. Paul restaurant.

Started in 2007, Restaurant Week provides the opportunity to sample some of the best food in the metro at a reduced cost (dinners top out at $30 per person, not counting drinks, tip or tax). The website had posted menus for several of the restaurants, but not all of them turned out to be accurate. This was a bummer for me, as I really wanted to try the marinated leek salad with mimosa vinaigrette, walnuts and blue cheese that was listed for Meritage. I switched to the smoked salmon mousse with frisee, lemon and capers, dill and rye crisp, though, and was a very happy camper (although one of the servers tried to bring me something else first).

Colleen picked the cream of mushroom soup for her first course and the Atlantic skate grenobeloise with seasonal vegetables and roasted potatoes for her entr̩e (along with a champaign cocktail with St. Germaine liquor). My main dish might be my favorite thing of the past year: classic beef bourguignon with pappardelle and grand mere garnish. It was a serious Remy Ratatouille moment Рthe flavor of the sauce, the tenderness of the beef, the hand-made ribbon noodles, carrots, mushrooms and bits of pork combined for a taste sensation. Superb!

Our desserts consisted of panna cotta for Colleen and a chocolate torte with pear caramel for me. Now sold on the concept of wine pairings, I ordered a three-course wine flight, which had a different three ounce pour of a pre-selected wine for each course. Late to the game, but I’ll become a oenophile yet.

We close out Restaurant Week tonight with a first-time visit to Chef Landon Schoenefeld’s place in Minneapolis, HauteDish.

Jeremy Messersmith at First Avenue

Posted Thursday, February 27th, 2014 12:45 am GMT -5 in Concerts,Family,Friends,Music at 12:45 AM

Jeremy Messersmith is such an easy artist to root for – talented, modest, friendly and approachable. When we saw him nine months ago at the Fine Line, he signed a shirt for kid two (who absolutely adores him) and was eager to talk to anyone who wanted to chat. Both kids were lucky enough to get tickets to the Electric Fetus Breakfast Show on February 16th and (of course) he was happy to sign stuff for them again and pose for a picture.

It seems that he is starting to get rewarded for his work. His newest album, Heart Murmurs, was released on Glassnote Records, home to that little band called Mumford and Sons. A few days after the two sold out First Avenue shows, his Twitter feed was full of London stuff. When he returns to the States, a quick tour swing through the west awaits. I’m guessing we won’t see any more living room shows any time soon, unfortunately…

We had four tickets to the Saturday night show, but scheduling was tight due to dinner, roads were terrible and Colleen didn’t feel good and decided to head home early. One woman who was turned away at the door was the lucky recipient of a free ticket, though.

I’ve talked a lot lately about how crowded sold out shows are getting at First Avenue, but arriving after the headliner has taken the stage is really bad (and one of my least favorite things to do). I’m guessing we missed the first two songs (Tourniquet and ?) and had to stand way in the back by the rear bar. We moved up a little as the night went on, but it was still sub-optimal (and definitely too close to the dumb bar talkers). At least there weren’t a ton of super tall people completely blocking us out.

Andrea Swensson has a nice review on the Current blog, but I haven’t seen a full set list anywhere. My favorite song was probably the cover of Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend, but the closer Someday, Someone was also great, as was A Girl, A Boy And A Graveyard. I thought I had heard him sing the Robyn cover before, but kid one corrected me, saying it was really The New Standards.

Smart kid, that one.

I loved the big 10-piece band – First Avenue should have string sections more often (the Laurels String Quartet sounded great and added a very unique and powerful dimension to a number of songs). I’ve never been a big fan of Cloud Cult, but keyboardist Sarah Perbix was wonderful. It was also really nice to see my friend David and his daughter afterwards (near the soundboard, of course).

Louis at Cossetta’s

Posted Tuesday, February 25th, 2014 09:37 pm GMT -5 in Family,Food at 9:37 PM

Kid one wanted a triple date for her birthday dinner, so we all squeezed into Colleen’s car and drove to Cossetta’s new fancy restaurant on the top floor, Louis Ristorante & Bar. I’ve been a fan of the market and pizza/pasta remodel project, but hadn’t seen the top floor until now. It was a pretty room with a beautiful outdoor patio (and one very brave winter bartender).

The menu was pretty straight-forward Italian, but I was a little concerned our young picky eater wouldn’t find anything. They have a very nice kids menu, though, that included buttered noodles with parmesan cheese (along with fresh fruit, house bread, fries, beverage and vanilla or chocolate gelato). All for $7!

I tried the Spiedini di Mozzarella (fresh mozzarella fried, served with a tomato, anchovy, lemon and white wine sauce) from the appetizer options and really liked it. Strangely enough, the main course I ordered isn’t listed online, but it was a nice chicken parmigiana with a side of spaghetti. The portions were large and I had the rest of it the next day for lunch. The New York cheesecake for dessert was creamy and smooth.

Colleen ordered the Louis brick chicken, which the menu described as “lemon-brined chicken cooked under a brick and finished with a natural sauce and lemon.” Very tender chicken, but be prepared to wait a little longer for the special preparation. We also shared a side of pan-fried yukon gold potatoes, which were cooked perfectly.

We ran into Tom Cody, who was also dining there that night. The place was packed, mainly due to Red Bull Smashed Ice (which had a sweet branded ice bar on the patio). It’s a loud, dark room that seems to be a relatively minor bump up in formality from the rest of the building (you could easily feel comfortable in jeans there). Prices were fine for the quality of the food and service, but overall I’d probably be just as happy eating downstairs…

Chef Shack Ranch

Posted Sunday, February 23rd, 2014 03:51 pm GMT -5 in Food at 3:51 PM

Dara wrote a very nice review of the new Chef Shack Ranch location in Minneapolis that reminded me I needed to write a post about our visit last week. Located at 31st and Franklin near the Mississippi River, you need to pick your day to visit carefully, as they are only open from 5-10pm Thursday – Saturday and for Sunday brunch from noon-4pm. Oh, it’s much easier to park in the back too…

The Big Boy Ranch Plate was our primary reason to visit, although Colleen also wanted a bag of the famous mini-donuts that we usually get from the big red truck at the Mill City Farmers Market during the warmer and less snowy parts of the year. As Dara wrote in her review, the $25 meat plate contains “buttery and tender biscuits, baked beans, a bacon bratwurst, fresh cucumber pickles, perky red cabbage, and some combination of pulled pork, barbecued chicken and brisket.” It was amazing. All we added was a side of the excellent fries (makes sense now that I know the Barbette connection) and the mini-donuts.

The room has all sorts of cool stuff hanging on the walls. The line was non-existent on our visit, so we walked right up and paid via Square running on an iPad (still really like that service). We took the number on a stick to our table and didn’t have to wait long at all for our food to arrive. Service was attentive and friendly (including what I assume to be the owners) and we got a pitch to visit the Bay City location sometime after their winter break. Maybe a little Treasure Island – Red Wing – Chef Shack trip is in order once the snow melts. Gotta go back and try the wings too…

Arctic Monkeys at First Avenue

Posted Sunday, February 16th, 2014 12:19 am GMT -5 in Concerts,Family,Music at 12:19 AM

As soon as the arena-quality lighting effects started during their introduction, you knew this was going to be a true rock and roll show. The opening notes of Do I Wanna Know? were just chilling – the Arctic Monkeys were ready to bring it to First Avenue for Valentine’s Day in a big way.

This was my first time seeing Alex Turner and the gang from Sheffield in person and they did not disappoint. It’s just amazing to me that they play Madison Square Garden one week, then before 1600 people at a very sold out First Avenue the next. Stuff like that just doesn’t usually happen (although First Ave does get a fair share of these shows – see Black Crowes, Paul Simon, etc.).

Surprised there was no Chris Riemenschneider at this show – I’ll have to see if I can find a full set list somewhere. I do know the three song encore consisted of an acoustic Cornerstone, then One for the Road and R U Mine?, while the main set ended with 505. Of course Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High? was somewhere in there too, along with Snap Out of It, Fireside and Fluorescent Adolescent.

The band was tight and sounded great in that room. Bassist Nick O’Malley and lead guitar Jamie Cook don’t play with a lot of emotion, but were technically very good (as is drummer Matt Helders). Turner has the rock star act down pat, raising and holding his hands in the air for maximum effect, combing his hair between songs and grinding his hips to make the ladies swoon. And that voice – wow.

The Monkeys have five albums out, all of which went to number one in the UK. They’ve also won five Brit Awards (including Best British Group twice), so it was really a special treat to see them in such an intimate venue. Well, maybe a little too intimate. The kids wanted to be up front and we were essentially right in the middle of the floor. It was jammed in there and once they took the stage, there was a huge surge of people pushing up on my back. I basically spent that first song leaning backwards at a 45-degree angle so I wouldn’t get pushed over. No complaints though – that’s part of the deal with standing there instead of my usual spot by the soundboard…

Speaking of kids, this was an 18+ show and the FAQ on the First Ave website said people under 18 can attend with their parents. We unfortunately didn’t have them bring their school IDs, so the very nice front door manager looked for “family resemblance” and decided the photo I had on my phone of the two of them was enough proof of parenthood. Both kids got the black X (along with Colleen) and we were told they had to stay by us for the whole show (hence the crowded main floor).

Next up: Jeremy Messersmith on February 22nd.
