    Interesting observation.

    Took my family to Butcher & the Boar a few Sundays ago. My oldest son, Jack (12yr) asked where we were going to eat. When I told him the name, he smiled and said, "I'm betting that story doesn't end too well for the boar, huh?"

    Props to these guys for organizing their bourbon list by distillery, even if there are some slight missteps.

    Another place bourbon drinkers should go is Haute Dish. They have a great bourbon list at reasonable prices, and MOST IMPORTANTLY they do NOT measure the drink by the ounce. The Pappy 23 I had there last week for 25$ was easily 2.5 ounces if not more.

    Killer price, but it seems like they are pricing it too low.

    Look good through.

    Food was good. I especially liked the side dishes...but, then again, I am a sucker for grits and greens.

    Haute Dish is a great place...and they love their Bourbon, too.

    I've got to check out both of those places. Which should I do first?

    Re: Attn Twin Cities Folks: New Bourbon Bar!

    It really depends on your mood. Both offer very accommodating bars as well as typical restaurant seating. If you're in the mood for a bustling atmosphere with a lot of energy, I'd say head to B&TB. If you'd like something a bit more sedate, head to H-D.

    Both have really good food, and both have enough Bourbons to keep you busy. B&TB has a few more than H-D does.
