Twin Ciites Restaurant and food reporter and James Beard Award winner, Sue Zelickson, is the feature writer of the dining lifesyle articles that will lead off each of the culinary categories in the 2010 Twin Cities Food Finds Restaurant Guide. The guide, which is released Metro wide in late March, 2010 is the Twin Cities most comprehensive dining directory and provides readers the ability to search for their perfect dining experience by cuisine type, alphabetically or by location. More than eighty of the top restaurant in the metro area are featured in two page spreads that highlight each restaurant key elements that make them unique; the menu, ambience and magnificent food photography.
Only within the past few years is the Twin cities diner able to order high quality, innovated fare that gourmet burger joints and gatropubs are offering. What is "American Cuisine" mean in 2010? More than Chicken. Just as we are a melting pot of people, the cuisines offered at "American" restaurants now reflect that melting pot. But today, more than ever, American cuisine expands beyond the regions in which it was developed (Pacific Northwest, Southwestern, Southern Cuisine, etc). It is melding the flavors and techniques of the Middle East, South America and Asia to name just a few. Speaking of Asia, restaurants featuring authentic Chinese, Japanese and Thai have been sprouting up faster than any other cuisine category throughout the Metro. Why is that? What has happened to the Twin Citizen's pallettes that are now, finally, accepting these culinary features? Sue Zelickson brings her thoughts on these trends and why today, more than ever before, our restaurants are featuring food that stands up to the best of the best in a country of great Food Cities. Watch for Sue's features in the upcoming Twin Cities Food Finds, due in stores in March.
