The City Pages' Hot Dish blog has a list of "COMING SOON" restaurants:
One in particular caught my eye:
The Anchor Fish & Chips, Minneapolis
I have heard nothing about it , but the words "Fish & Chips" set off a Pavlovian response in my salivary glands. One lives in hope that finally we will have a GREAT f&c place around here.
Anyone know anything about The Anchor, like when they will open? All i know is what i could find on the internetz. Googling the name brings up this bit of city business:
Which tells us, among other things:
