this may be too exotic for the twin cities
do you know of any places serving, at least in the summer, home made cold beet borscht served with sour cream and maybe a small boiled potato. nothing out of a jar. might be a more realistic query for NYC or chicago.
Oh gee this makes me miss the Old City Cafe, which used to be located at Grand and Snelling a good 15 yrs ago. They had great cold borscht that I still crave on a regular basis. Sigh.
Needless to say I will be watching this thread with interest!
I think I had a good one last summer at a Ukrainian deli and grocery in Coon Rapids, of all places, they have a LOT of other exotic stuff too. Kind of cute though out of the way, not sure of the hours.
