A steak house.
I biked by the other day and you could peek through the curtains in the windows. Looks like they dropped some serious coin into the space. Hope it's successful.
Everything about this article made me sick - it was such a cop out. But I didn't really expect much better from him. There are several restaurants in that area that have lasted decades. Provide us with a concept that features good options at good prices and you'll succeed. Agreed that none of the concepts he's tried have hit both marks. I enjoyed Ling & Louie's - but the food was always meh.grrdanko wrote: ↑November 6th, 2019, 9:12 amArticle on Rojo closing:

The owner Michael McDermott said "After two people were shot on Crave's patio, Rojo's sales dropped and never recovered."
This is a really odd statement. He's claiming a shooting at a restaurant that is still in open caused his restaurant to close.
I don't know how Rojo survives as a chain. The one in West End has been open for years, the food there is garbage like the ones in NL and Nicollet.5th Ave Guy wrote: ↑November 6th, 2019, 2:30 pmThis guy managed to close two different restaurants located on the prime stretch of the North Loop in under two years. The second of the two was, of course, a hail mary Rojo just like the Nicollet version.
I would take it as a badge of honor for the food scene in Minneapolis that we keep rejecting his awful concepts.
I haven't dined there in a long time, and it was always for business functions where I wasn't the one paying, but The News Room always seemed fine to me from a quality standpoint, if a bit generic. Has it gone downhill in recent years?
I've gone to a handful of events and gatherings there. They seem to do hors d'oeuvres well enough, but dining in the restaurant was always mediocre along with some pretty terrible service.Bakken2016 wrote: ↑November 7th, 2019, 3:26 pm
