Coming Soon…


Here is the customary look ahead to the month’s action on the blog. On the food front my goal is to finally wrap up my reports from London last June (!) and also finish my Bombay reports from December. I’ll squeeze a few Twin Cities reports in there as well. My goal for the year is to better explore the current state of the Indian restaurant scene here. I have an optimistic theory that it may be improving with growing numbers of Indian immigrants.

On the booze front, I will likely have more brandy and rum reviews than usual. In my review of the Baraillon 33 earlier this week I noted that I’ve been buying Armagnac that I have not actually been opening. To a lesser degree that’s true of rum as well. This will accordingly be the month that I open some of those bottles. There’ll also be a steady diet of whisky reviews. The long list follows—let me know in the comments as per usual if there are any you’d vote to the short list.

  1. I hope you’re right about the Indian food scene. We recently had India Palace (Roseville) buffet; I think the food quality has gone up since we last visited. IMHO the best is still Ghorka Palace. Also, I don’t think a dosa can be ordered anywhere around here now anymore.

  3. Springbank 11 Local Barley. Your review would make a handy point of reference before my club opens our bottle later this spring for “Springbank Spring Break.”
