RIP Purple Sandpiper

My son just stopped in at the Purple Sandpiper in Bloomington. There was a sign on the door that they are closed indefinitely for mechanical reasons. I think we all know what this means in “restaurant speak”. The Web site is also gone.

A year ago I had such high hopes, but as the months passed, it seemed inevitable. The restaurant had been plagued by a bad location, high chef turnover, dumbing down the menu, and reports of inconsistent food and service.

I will miss anything they made with pork belly, but I will especially miss the cheddar ice cream.
