New hot spots in 2012

VitaMN put together a really great article about all the new “intriguing” bars and restaurants coming to the Twin Cities in 2012.  The article really got me excited as these new places sound fantastic.

  1. Bucher and the Boar – “The bar’s all-American stance will include 30 domestic craft brews on tap, 50 bourbons and a serious selection of smoked and cured meats.”
  2. Eat Street Social – “While the new restaurant’s farm-to-table menu is enough to coo about, much of the fervor relates to the bartending wizards behind its beverage program.”
  3. Eli’s East – “The dark wood interior will feature antique lighting, leather booths and a copper-top bar.”
  4. Devil’s Advocate –  “[They’ll] have 40 draft lines and American bistro grub.”
  5. Blue Door Longfellow – Blucy anyone?
  6. Icehouse – a rock bar/deli/cocktail den
