Best Breakfast Ever - Your Favorites

I like Blackbird too but while you are in the neighborhood you should try Grand Cafe. It is an amazing place - or several places. It is a busy, happening place on weekends, during the day but at night it is something else - soft light, good music - romantic. But the weekend brunch is simply stellar - Eggs Benedict or Huevos Rancheros are are favorites - but anything there is really special. I live nearby - eat there with regularity and have never been anything but extremely pleased. And while you are there you are right across the street from the best candy shop in town - Sugar Sugar. 38th and Grand S. in Mpls.

Muffin Pan Popovers

I have a question - do you think you could make the batter and bake 6 popovers - store the batter until the next day and bake the other 6?

Creamy Vegan Cauliflower Soup

I have never made a recipe from Chow - much less one from a reader and untried but I hit it lucky with this one. Really a fabulous soup and I am not a vegan but the garlic really gives this one some heft! Highly recommend.

[MPLS] NYC hound coming in for labor day weekend

As a former Minneapolitan I recommend Lucia's in the Uptown area. It has been there for years and the food is consistently wonderful and interesting. They have a wine bar and sidewalk tables - a great place to watch the people go by and enjoy the cool evening.
