Restaurant Roundup: New spots for lunch, dinner

Feb. 21, 2019

K Restaurant has added Thursday to its evenings of dinner service. The longtime restaurant at the south end of the boardwalk at 8th & Railroad Center is open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with the kitchen closing at 8:45. The Thursday night menu includes some of the favorites from the lunch menu. “It’s more of a casual menu than our weekend menu,” chef Kristina Kuehn said. “This is more for a friends and family evening … in more of a fun bistro-style atmosphere.” While the Friday and Saturday dinner menu changes every weekend, the Thursday night offerings will be consistent.

O So Good Restaurant in Garretson is giving lunch hours another shot. Chef Omar Thornton is cooking up food from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. Customers can order from the dinner menu of Southern comfort food and more with a 15 percent discount. Thornton is planning to add a lunch menu when spring arrives. For winter, the restaurant is closed Sunday through Tuesday.

Chef Lance’s Cafe & Catering has expanded its prepared-meal delivery to five days a week from two. Lance White cooks meals that can be ordered in individual or family sizes. Order at by midnight Sunday through Thursday and have the food delivered the next day.

22Ten Kitchen Cocktails has added a limited-time featured menu for dinner. Starters include a winter chicken salad, crab cakes and aranci, which are risotto balls with forest mushrooms, tomato confit, a sunflower seed and arugula pesto, and an egg yolk. Entree choices are a duck breast, seafood risotto and cassoulet with red beans, bell pepper, celery, onion, andouille and chicken served with grilled bread. The featured dessert is a cardamom lemon cake. Diners at the new restaurant at 69th and Western will find the special items until mid-March.

Update: Hotdish Competish has been postponed to March 17 because of expected winter weather this weekend, so there’s still time to get your recipes ready for competition.

If you love a winter-hearty casserole or hotdish, or whatever you grew up calling it, you can sample several Sunday at the annual Hotdish Competish. The event is a fundraiser for the All Saints Neighborhood Association. Judging begins at 4:30 p.m. at DakotAbilities, 1116 S. Fourth Ave., and the food will be served from 5 to 7 p.m. Categories include hotdish, notdish (vegetarian), totdish (kid chefs) and dessert bars. Enter the contest or purchase tickets here. Entries are due at noon Friday.

Perhaps only a copy editor would notice this, but the annual Brrrvana party at Monks House of Ale Repute on Saturday has an extra R in it this year. “Well, it’s cold out,” Monks’ Karen Budde said. “It’s Mother Nature putting the ‘brrr’ back in Brrrvana.” One of the great things about the event is all the interesting beer names. Sixty specialty beers will be available for sampling, and here are a few of the more clever ones: Big Doinks, Czar of Hopistan, Circular Reasoning, Fear. Movie. Lions., Funeral Bar Tiramisu and Punk Lemonade. The event runs from 2 to 6 p.m. at the bar on East Eighth Street. Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door.
