Minneapolis / Is KinhDo Still Open? / Lucia's / Loring / New French

Lisa | Apr 17, 2005 06:25 PM

I moved away from Minneapolis more than a decade ago, to San Francisco, and have recently been thinking about a return visit to check out my old haunts. I worked at KinhDo as a server for a couple of years and still crave their Hot & Spicy Chicken and their Curried Mock Duck. It's funny how your first experience with a certain type of food can remain your ideal.

I also dearly miss Lucia's! And the Loring Bar/Cafe. Do they still have the block party in August? Aah, good times. Ooh! And the New French!!! Are they still there?

I would love to read an update about these and other Minneapolis faves. (Also the Uptown Bar and CC Club, First Avenue/7th St. Entry...I could go on)

Anyone feel inclined to fill me in? Also, anything new that you think is a don't-miss? Thanks!

P.S. Feel free to e-mail me directly if you want to talk about just the bars I mentioned... gotta keep this chowhoundish.
