Restaurant Roundup: New menu items, new hours, new owner

Dec. 27, 2018

Bread & Circus Sandwich Kitchen changed up the menu a bit heading into the brunt of winter. The new replacements for the poke bowl, brisket sandwich and pork kafta are red curry wings, a lamb Philly and Swedish meatballs. True to form, chef Jordan Taylor put his twist on traditional dishes at the downtown restaurant. You won’t find ranch or bleu cheese with the wings – they come with a minted yogurt. The Philly features roasted leg of lamb, caramelized onions, goat “cheese wiz” and pickled poblano peppers. And while the Swedish meatballs are in a mushroom gravy, they’re topped with pickled beets and a “chimichurri of sorts.”

The Attic Bar & Grill has introduced winter menu items that will be available through January. Entrees at the restaurant near 41st and Sycamore include a maple bourbon pork chop, bison meatloaf, orange teriyaki chicken rice bowl and “holiday” salmon, which features a pecan cranberry crumble. Among the desserts are a caramel apple bread pudding and Bailey’s pumpkin spice creme brulee.

Himalayan Indian Cuisine has tweaked its hours and offerings. The restaurant on Arrowhead Parkway is closed on Mondays. The lunch buffet is being offered Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and includes goat and lamb dishes. Dine-in orders are 15 percent off from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Carryout orders are always 15 percent off. Dinner hours are 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.

Lam’s Vietnamese Restaurant will be closed from Jan. 8 through Feb. 1 while the owners and family return to their homeland to visit relatives. They’ll be back in time for the celebration of Tet, the Vietnamese New Year that begins Feb. 5, and, similar to previous years, the restaurant on East Rice Street likely will serve the special banh tet, a savory cake traditionally eaten at the new year.

212 The Boiling Point in Brandon will have a new owner Jan. 1. Employee Kyle Thill is buying the bar and grill from Mark Fonder, who also owns Double Ds Saloon in Brandon and The Barrel House and Krav’n in Sioux Falls. Thill, who has worked at the business for five years, is planning to keep the name, but he’s going to introduce a new menu and make a few “cosmetic” changes inside. The Boiling Point is open daily and serves lunch specials.

Remedy Brewing Co. has been named the most dog-friendly restaurant in South Dakota by Food Network. After touting the beers, food and decor, Food Network points out what makes the downtown brewery a good place for four-legged friends: “Dogs are allowed both inside and out. The canine-loving staff have water bowls and treats on hand to make pups feel welcome — though shyer dogs may get overwhelmed when weekend crowds pack the place.” Oddly enough, Food Network’s photo accompanying the Remedy listing does not include a dog, just six smiling people sitting with their beers around a fire pit. At least Remedy included this cool photo with its Facebook post about the ranking.
