Two more stores have left Boulevard Mall. Subway restaurant closed last week. With its departure, it leaves just four quick-serve food options scattered throughout the mall since the food court closed to make room for Dick's Sporting Goods: Isa Bella Pizza, Taste of China, Mrs. Fields and Auntie Anne's. TGI Friday's, Chili's and Bonefish Grill are also on the property. Dakota Watch Co., a kiosk at that sold and serviced wristwatches, closed when its lease expired at the end of last month.

There are nine cafes, restaurants and takeaways with food hygiene rating of zero out of five. The ratings were given in 2018 after inspectors paid a visit to the Bristol eateries. Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times. Sometimes a zero rating doesn’t mean unhygienic, it can be in some cases a paperwork problem. The scheme gives businesses a rating from 5 to 0 which is displayed at their premises and online so you can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

‘Good evening,” the maître d’ would say, “and welcome.” He’d usher you into the dining room, where the clink of cutlery and crystal glasses added a light percussion to an otherwise whispery soundtrack. A table covered in a heavy white cloth awaited. A server with a towel draped over his arm delivered a leather-bound menu — from the left, mind you, always the left — with flourish and a slight bow. Sound more like a scene from a movie than a night out? With fast-casual restaurants arriving in the Twin Cities area by the dozen, how we dine out is being transformed. Tablecloths are being whisked off, the hush is rising to a dull roar, and tableside servers are being replaced with counters and sometimes even computers. And while more people are going to restaurants more often, service is increasingly being seen as a luxury rather than a necessity. “With the fine dining mentality going away, some of those hospitality basics get … [Read more...] about Does service in Twin Cities restaurants still matter?
SHOPS and restaurants are running low on crabs for seafood fans — because of devastating weather throughout last winter. “Beast from the East” storms killed millions of shellfish, and tons were washed up on coasts. Andy Fray, crabbing for nearly 40 years, warned: “We’re catching about 60 per cent of what we usually get at this time of year.” But he told customers not to panic. He said: “We’ve had on-and-off years but we haven’t had an off one since 2012. “Less prolific seasons are always going to happen especially after really good years. “A number of factors might have contributed. “The ‘Beast from the East’ would’ve churned up the seabed injuring bigger and more juvenile crabs.” MOST READ IN MONEYBANKS FOR NOTHING TSB customer sees hacker steal £9k wedding cash as bank keeps him on hold Olé, Olé Sun Savers is offering you the chance to win a World Cup Party at home FANTASTIC … [Read more...] about Shops and restaurants running low on crabs because of ‘Beast from the East’ winter storms
