After nearly four months of dining center food, it’s time to get out and try something new. Use the first half of your week to venture off campus for a different dining experience. These three restaurants are just a start.
Monday: Scratch Sandwich and Deli Co.
As the name suggests, all of the bread at Scratch Sandwich and Deli Co. is made fresh and from scratch. Scratch pays particular attention to plating, easily making the prettiest sandwiches in Fargo-Moorhead. Pretty, however, often also means very hard to eat. Do yourself a favor and pair your half or whole sandwich with a soup or a deli salad — they’re fantastic and much easier to consume — or try the $7 special: Mom’s meatballs over egg noodles with a mixed greens salad. Monday’s soups are chili and the chef’s choice (cross your fingers that means clam chowder). Though $7-$10 may seem pricey for a simple sandwich, the quality of each ingredient will leave you feeling fresh and full.
Tuesday: Bangkok Corner
This Thai kitchen and sushi bar opens for dinner from 5-9 p.m. Located at 1450 25th St. S, this Fargo restaurant offers sushi, Thai curry, noodle and rice dishes. Specialty rolls are about $13-$14, but there is plenty on the menu for less. Top your meal off with the tempting fried banana and coconut ice cream dessert.
Wednesday: Hennessy’s Irish Pub
Taste perhaps the best reuben in Fargo Wednesday evening at Hennessy’s Irish Pub. The restaurant is open to anyone under 21 until 8 p.m. For those of age, tap beers switch to $4 after 8 p.m. and live music starts at 9 p.m. Though out of the way at 4323 45th St. S., Hennessy’s is definitely worth the gas. Prices range from $8-$13. Live bands take the stage at 9 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday, so be sure to stick around and hear The Blues Band this week.
