Will the Gogi Donut Burger grace the new restaurant menu?

Well look out, 'burbs -- you're about to get your own Korean Fusion in Gogi Bros. House, at 6407 City W. Parkway in the Shady Oak Retail Center.

Egg on Hay: A "Modern Farmhouse" dish from upcoming Heirloom in St. Paul

Our "coming soon" buttons are getting a workout this year, and our "closed" one is growing dust. This is such happy news!

The Twin Cities restaurant scene is like that Tupperware you're just absolutely sure is big enough for ALL the chili. Very little is leaking out; it's bulging and auspicious and abundant, threatening to burst, but so far, so good! You're gonna have meals for days and days and days.

Four new spots, coming soon.

Motley Crews The Food Truck = no more. Motley Crews the Restaurant = coming soon.

Up until a couple of weeks ago, Marty Richie was just a small-town guy with a small-time food business with plans to expand. But then, all of it quite literally went up in flames when his 1980's heavy-metal themed food truck exploded in his driveway.

Neither Richie nor his lawyer are commenting on the cause of the blast, but no one was hurt, and his plans to move into a downtown Lakeville restaurant space have not changed.

Spyhouse Will Open Fourth Location in the North Loop

Spyhouse will open a fourth location in the North Loop this summer

Managing to hit all the required notes, as running a mallet up a xylophone: great coffee? Bing! Music like your very own playlist? Bang! Understated decor like all your favorite catalogs mind-melded? Ding! Outlets galore, foolproof wi-fi, and a liberal stay-all-day policy? Zing!

The best coffee shop is usually the one that's closest to your apartment, but Spyhouse is actually really truly kinda the best, worth traveling for because of all the reasons above plus they serve Patisserie 46 pastry. Spyhouse is stylish enough for a date or a business meeting, or just that place to get out off the couch and stare at the laptop from different environs.

The North Loop will be getting its very own, and yes it's in a luxury apartment building, with a projected opening date in June.

Grand Avenue Twisted Fork Grille Will Close; 3rd Colossal Cafe Will Open In Its Place By May

Colossal Cafe's famous flappers. Soon you'll be able to get 'em on Grand Avenue.

Did you know that there is a restaurant on Grand Avenue called Twisted Fork Grille? (In the annals of unfortunately named restaurants, this should be entered).

We did, but we also drove past it all the time; it was just sort of there, like a backhoe or a streetlamp or a fire hydrant is there. You know that they're there, but you pay them no never mind and if anyone asked you if you saw them today you'd probably shrug, say "dunno," and move on about your business.

These guys are working up a manly appetite for burgers, beer, and bourbon.

Remember when Rachel had that cute haircut on Friends and then suddenly, all the girls, from the one next door to your boss, had it right on top of her own head? Or how about when the Hummer first came out? Arnold Schwarzenegger had one, so what better way to show you could pump it up like the big boys? The smartphone? You just had to have one too -- didn't you?!

The burgers, beer, and bourbon equation is the current Rachel haircut of the restaurant world -- a one-size-fits-all proposition that's now heading to Woodbury.
