Restaurant Roundup: Pheasant pizza and pasta, throwback pricing, ‘steal’ a taco

Oct. 24, 2019

Blue Rock Bar & Grill on the Sanford Sports Complex has a seasonal pizza in honor of pheasant hunting season. It’s made with South Dakota pheasant sausage, fontina cheese and more.

Pheasant also is the star of a dish on the new fall menu at Parker’s Bistro. The pheasant-stuffed raviolis are made by hand each day. A dish of three with a bacon scallion cream sauce is $14. The restaurant that’s downtown on Main Avenue is open every day for dinner.

Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que of America is celebrating 25 years with throwback prices. Through Sunday, get 1994 prices like this: Six St. Louis-style spareribs with two sides and a corn bread muffin for $10.99, a Georgia chopped pork sandwich and a side for $4.99, Dave’s Bread Pudding for $2 and a fountain drink for $1. The restaurant is at 2700 S. Minnesota Ave.

Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals stole a base in Game 1 of the World Series, so customers get to “steal” a Doritos Locos Taco from 2 to 6 p.m. Wednesday at Taco Bell. If you order online or use the app, you can get the free taco anytime that day.

If football is more your thing, W. 12th Pourhouse and Kitchen has a special menu filled with $5 appetizers, sliders and flatbread pizzas to enjoy while watching a game at the bar and restaurant at 12th and Marion. The football menu is available all day Sunday and from 6 to 10 p.m. Monday.

Agua Fresh has added a pick-two special for its downtown location at Ninth and Phillips. Choices includes soup, salad or sandwich for $7.89.

‘Tis the season … wait, it’s only Halloween? Word of Life Pentecostal Church’s homemade peanut brittle is in stock already at Poppy’s Popcorn Co. on 41st Street just west of Minnesota Avenue. The church ladies will keep restocking the store into the Christmas season. Poppy’s typically sells about 1,000 packages each year.

McNally’s Irish Pub at 69th and Western is having a Halloween Boo Brunch from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. The menu includes several Halloween-themed goods for parents and kids, including pumpkin pecan French toast and powdered sugar doughnuts with “spiders,” and there’s a costume contest with prizes. The price is $25 for adults, which includes bottomless mimosas, and $1 per year of age for kids. Reservations are encouraged.

This could be a battle to rival SDSU vs. NDSU. McNally’s is hosting the fourth annual Bartender Battle for Breast Cancer from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday. Dana Dykhouse, CEO of First Premier Bank, and Kelby Krabbenhoft, president and CEO of Sanford Health will compete for the most tips to benefit the Edith Sanford Breast Initiative.

Here’s some depressing news to share. There’s no denying that winter is coming — it’s the end of the season for the last of the B&G Milkyways that are still open. The locations at 69th and Louise and at 41st and Veterans Parkway close Sunday. Stock up on half-gallons of your favorite Avalanche flavor or get grab bags of novelty items.

Here’s a healthy, fun twist on a caramel apple. Nature’s Way Juice Bar on South Louise Avenue has put the caramel apple bowl back on the menu through mid-November. It’s served in a pineapple boat. The base is juiced apples, acai and frozen bananas topped with fresh bananas, dehydrated crispy apple chips, chia seeds and a drizzle of caramel.

This sounds like an interesting pairing! The Boozy Bakery has created Candy Corn Martini Brownies. Get them through Halloween at the bakery, which is open Wednesday through Sunday inside JJ’s Wine, Spirits & Cigars on West 57th Street.
