Restaurant Roundup: Christmas sushi, famous food blogger, Proost! to Monks

Plum’s Cooking Co. is bringing food blogger Molly Yeh to Sioux Falls for a special event Feb. 22. She’ll make several of her signature dishes: chicken pot tot hotdish, meatless balls, marzipan and funfetti cake. She’ll also sign copies of her cookbook “Molly on the Range.” Yeh, who graduated from The Juilliard School with a degree in percussion, moved from New York to North Dakota, where her husband is a fifth-generation farmer. Seating is limited, and tickets are $140 and $165.

Monks House of Ale Repute is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a party today, Dec. 21. It’s tapping several specialty kegs, including some that are fitting for the occasion: Surly 10, the 2016 Prairie Artisan Birthday Bomb and Oskar Blues Ten-Fidy RIS. The craft beer pub at 410 E. Eighth St. opened before the brewing scene blossomed in Sioux Falls. The party goes until midnight.

Ouch for Wall Drug but hooray for Flyboy Donuts! The Travel Channel picked the Sioux Falls doughnut shop as the “best, must-try donut shop” for South Dakota. Here’s a link to the selections for the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Bakeries aren’t the only eateries to come up with festively decorated foods for the holidays. Check out the Christmas Roll that’s on the menu at Oshima Sushi Japanese Cuisine for the holiday season. It’s made with white tuna, avocado and mango inside, with crab meat, crunch flakes, seaweed and tobiko, or flying fish roe, on the top. The restaurant at 109 E. 10th St. will be open from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Christmas Day.

Put on that ugly Christmas sweater because the parties aren’t over yet.

  • Tinners Public House is celebrating from 6 to 10 p.m. Dec. 23 with half-price Anheuser Busch drinks.
  • Hydra Beer Hall is the location for day two of Hydra Beer Co.’s second anniversary party. The new taproom downtown will celebrate Dec. 23 with festivities that include an ugly sweater contest throughout the night. Krampus, the “half-goat, half-demon” companion to St. Nicholas, will award bottle prizes.
  • Both J.L. Beers locations are having ugly sweater parties. The Western Avenue restaurant will celebrate Dec. 21, giving a free set of glassware to anyone wearing an ugly Christmas sweater. The party downtown starts at 5 p.m. Dec. 28 with the tapping of Founders CBS, an imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels that most recently housed maple syrup. The bar will post photos of the ugly-sweater wearers on Facebook, and the person with the most likes will win a Founders cooler.

If you like wild game, you’ll like this dinner. 212 The Boiling Point in Brandon is having its 10th annual wild game feed Jan. 8 and 9. It’s a free-will donation meal with proceeds going to feed local children. Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 5:30 p.m., and the meal starts at 6 p.m. Diners can expect to eat duck, goose, turkey, pheasant, deer, elk, antelope, walleye, salmon, bear, boar, turtle, beaver, raccoon and “exotic surprises.”
