As a Fairview/Randolph neighbor, it would be lovely to have something in the Mississippi Market space.
But I disagree that St. Paul Academy is a "lousy landlord." I understand that the school has - as you said - a long-term development plan, and that they're not renting the spot as a result. So it's not as if new stores/restaurants/markets aren't choosing to rent that space due to some view of the school as a bad landlord, it's that the space is not on the rental market at all.
As to WF, very bummed that it is moving. I hate the corner of Snelling and Selby - too busy and no easy parking.
Hi all - long time lurker, new member with a question:
My husband is a relatively new scotch enthusiast and so I was thinking it might be fun to take him to a scotch tasting dinner as a holiday gift. From my internet browsings, I can see that Butcher and Boar has an extensive bourbon list (with flights), and that the St. Paul Grill has a huge scotch list, but I can't find any place doing a dinner.
Any ideas? Anyone done a bourbon flight at Butcher and Boar or is in the scotch club at St. Paul Grill? Thanks in advance!
