Restaurant Roundup: Sundae Sundays, elk pasta, free taco

Oct. 3, 2019

Parlour Ice Cream House is adding Sundae Sundays. Every month will feature a new creation, with prices ranging from $5 to $6. For October, it’s vanilla chai ice cream with chocolate pearls, caramel and fudge sauces, and whipped cream. The ice cream shop in downtown’s Washington Square on Main Avenue is open from 2 to 7 p.m. Sundays. On the other days of the week, Parlour is open from 2 to 9 p.m Monday through Thursday, and 2 to10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Finding elk on the menu in Sioux Falls is pretty rare. RedRossa Napoli Pizza at 41st and Western has a new special that’s available for a limited time: elk Bolognese pasta. The dish features cavatappi topped with elk sausage in a combination of red and alfredo sauces with mushroom and onion.

After getting requests from customers, Intoxibakes has started selling single servings of the frosting for its cupcakes. The buttercream treats are called Frosting Drops. The bakery in the Jones421 Building downtown typically has a dozen flavors available. They’re $1, which includes tax.

For Friday’s National Vodka Day, get a preview of an offering coming to The SandBar & Grill’s new menu that launches Oct. 14. The restaurant at Lake Lorraine will be serving Rainbow Bright, a spiked milkshake featuring UV cherry vodka and Fruity Pebbles. It’s also National Taco Day, so SandBar’s street tacos will be available at a discount.

Taco John’s is celebrating National Taco Day by giving a free taco to users of its mobile app.

Wilde Prairie Winery near Brandon will celebrate its Harvest Festival from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. Enjoy wine, food from Papa Woody’s Wood Fired Pizza and Kabab King Food Truck and live music by the Vermillion Brothers. Pet an alpaca, do a painting project with Creative Spirits, shop at vendors and bring the kids for face and pumpkin painting, and a bouncy house.

Sanna’s 8th Street Gourmet is having a fundraiser breakfast Sunday for Feeding South Dakota. Owner Sanaa Abourezk is asking for a $10 donation and nonperishable food items. All of the proceeds from the traditional weekend Mediterranean breakfast, which will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will go to the food pantry. If you can’t make the breakfast, stop in with a donation of food and get a piece of baklava. The Mediterranean restaurant at the 8th & Railroad Center typically isn’t open Sundays.

‘O’ So Good, a Garretson restaurant that serves Southern comfort food, is having a special pop-up dinner Oct. 30 in Sioux Falls. The three-course meal at Open Space near 69th and Western will feature jambalaya, lamb chops and pumpkin lasagna. Doors open at 6 p.m., and dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. Tickets must be purchased in advance through the restaurant. They’re $65 per couple and include a bottle of wine or nonalcoholic beverages. Single tickets are $35.

Blue 42 Sports Grill has dropped its Monday through Thursday lunch hours. The Hartford restaurant opens at 3 p.m. on those days. Friday through Sunday, it opens at 11 a.m. To schedule group meals outside of regular business hours, call 605-528-2583.

IHOP has introduced gluten-friendly buttermilk pancakes. The batter includes rice flour and other gluten-friendly ingredients. Other new gluten-friendly menu items include waffles and Ultimate Steakburgers. The restaurant, which is near 41st and I-299, notes that it can’t confirm the new items meet the FDA’s definition of “gluten-free.”
