From hot new restaurants opening to beloved eateries closing their doors, the Hot Dish was all over the Twin Cities food scene this year. As we enter a new year, here are a few of the most popular posts of 2013.
|After all those New Year's Eve toasts, you're gonna need a good breakfast.|Curl up (by the fire, or into a ball in the corner, depending) with a piping hot mug of vintage holiday cheer.
When it comes down to the brass tacks of spending the holidays at your childhood home, let's face it: It's not all decking the halls in your finest gay apparel, caroling, and carrying on. It's also soul-crushing traffic, tiny twin beds, or struggling to wrap anything other than a square box (we still don't get it). For this, and for the good times, let's create something decadent and full of booze to mark the passing of this crazy season. From the comfort of your parent's living room, enjoy a homemade take on the classic Tom & Jerry.More »

Almond Chai Hot Toddy
$9 ($7 during happy hour)
With temperatures plummeting below zero, the weather is practically daring you to go out once the sun goes down. Don't let weather win! Skate your way down the sidewalk to a dimly lit Italian bistro, preferably one with a healthy dose of quaint rustic-chic decor and Frank Sinatra crooning over the speakers to melt your stone-cold heart. Amore Victoria fits the bill, with warm service, a warm seat by the bar (no small feat), and a hand-crafted warm drink like the Almond Chai Hot Toddy to give you a much needed respite from the land of 10,000 slid-through stop signs and wind chill advisories whipping outside the door.
