Where to eat in Grand Forks.

Braved the "construction zone" (READ: MESS!) in downtown tonight to hit up Thai Hot 3 across from the Empire.   My wife and I had been there before when they first opened and had a great meal but on a Saturday night at 6:30pm we walked in to a totally empty restaurant in the middle of a orange cone construction mess.

Nice job. 

I try to do that also when I know a decent place is getting crushed by orange cones.

I like Ely's Ivy.  I think they tried to be way too cute with their menu when they first opened, but it has gotten a lot better.  Appreciate that it changes with availability of fresh ingredients. Have been there for lunch a couple times this summer-good fresh fish specials both times and sat outside on their patio (or is it a park?) next to it.

Do yourself a favor if you're in Grand Forks and hit up Fat Albert's. The Crunchy Po-Boy Taco sub changed my life.. 

I rarely went there when in GF.

It wasn't because I didn't like it, mostly just forgot about the restaurant. Never was disappointed though when I did remember to order

Kind of the same lines of that sandwich place by Tim Hortons. Decent food, just never first on my mind

Yes, most people I know never even think of Fat Albert's. Grand Junction is really good too but like you, I tend to forget about it. I have heard really good things about Scotty's Deli but have yet to go.

eat there one time in the 90's...i think it was in the same spot as tea n crepe.

NOEL'S!   Yes - I was thinking about that place but couldn't remember the name.  It was one of the first truly international cuisine restaurants to come to GF.   We did a TV commercial for them and the owner was a very nice Pakistani guy.   (NOT Babu Bhatt but close!)  The food was AMAZING but unfortunately beyond most of GF's palate back in the '90's.   He did a spicy stir fried rice and chicken dish that was AMAZING.   The place had been a former small diner downtown (counter space and a few small tables) and he was around for awhile but I think the flood did him in.

Here's another one for the memory banks and I'm not sure I remember it right either but WEB'S DINER?  Gateway drive...there's a Dobmeyer Bail Bond office there now.
