Wildfire Jucy Lucy Disappoints

Wildfire Jucy Lucy Disappoints, originally uploaded by edkohler.

I was surprised to find a Jucy Lucy on the specials menu at Wildfire today. Obviously, I had to try it.

It was hiding under the name “Stuffed Peppercorn White Cheddar Burger.”

My first realization that things weren’t going to go we’ll was when they asked how it should be cooked. Um, Jucy’s are either done or now done.

It had cooked onions, sesame seed bun, lettuce, and tomatoes.

The Lucy showed up ruptured, so they didn’t manage to deliver the goods. It was also slightly burnt.

Would I get it again? Nope. But I do have to give Wildfire credit for trying.

Top-7 Minneapolis Restaurant Blogs

If you’re looking or ideas on Minneapolis restaurants to check out, here are seven blogs that may offer some good tips for ya:

  • Chef Andrew Zimmern – generally focuses on top restaurants, chefs, and Minneapolis restaurant politics. Great place to find places when someone else is paying.
  • MNBeer.com – If beer is the main course, or something that has to be considered in your dining choice, look no further than MNBeer, who offers up to date news on what beers have been released to the public at local brew pubs.
  • The Bloated Belly – TBB covers a large variety of local restaurants. Or, as TBB puts it, offers, “Comments on Consumption”
  • Aaron Landry – Aaron photo blogs visits to local restaurants using his Hiptop at s4xton.com. If you want to see arm wrestling at the Town Talk or the view from the Clicquot Club, Aaron’s your guy.
  • Girl Friday – Girl Friday covers local watering holes and a whole lot more. Check out the drinking category for her latest takes on . . . um . . . drinking.
  • Doodledee.com – The most extensive published research on Jucy Lucy’s to date. Definitely worth a visit before heading out for your next Lucy.
  • Gin & Phonics – A little lean on the restaurant scene to date, but I had to include them solely on their coverage of Jucy Lucy’s at the NE Palace. I hope that post is the sign of more great research to come.

And while not a blog, it’s worth mentioning Thrifty Hipster, where you can find happy hour deals for any hour of the day.
