Kind of interesting that this will now be their fourth restaurant, though. Kind of surprised it's been that successful.
It's a great concept for the area and I think they'll knock it out of the park. But I'm also a bit surprised at their success because the first time I ate at the Minneapolis location I thought they'd go under before too long. Not really my vibe but they certainly appeal to a lot of people.

Is this the latest miss in the old Filigo space in Calhoun Square?

So strange how nothing seems to work there.

When I've gone thru the area on the weekend evenings, it looks like Lagoon is the main street that I see silly fools standing out in the cold waiting to get in. Don't think that Lake is that popular right now. Anyone know how Libertine and Senca Bar are doing for crowds on the weekends?

Anyone know if they did a weekend brunch there? Seem that Filigo had great weekend brunch business there when they were open. But then again Filigo's did not have the number of new competitors that are now open also.

Not that strange. I walk there all the time and always forget there's a restaurant there. It just does not have very good street visibility. Honestly, it could use a sign perpendicular to the facade to alert sidewalk walkers.

Then again the Calhoun Cafeteria Comfort Therapy Session Hug Group had enormous signage and...

The rent is too high. You would have to be one of the ten highest grossing restaurants in the state to make it there. All of the restaurants in Minneapolis that fall within that group would be steakhouses or high risk high reward independents that paid off, like Hell's Kitchen or Psycho Suzi's. It is very hard to plan a $10 million a year restaurant that doesn't sell $50 steaks.

Yep. It's a large, expensive space. Paraella was very good but never had a chance there. Is it practical to sub-divide this thing?

Weird that Libertine is working out.
Towns!

I've no idea about practicality, but that's what I'd personally prefer. I think multiple storefronts would make the whole area work better. There's already a glut of restaurants so one fewer isn't going to hurt. More stores might attract more shoppers.

I want a food option that's fast and something other than pizza and sandwiches.

A http://onetwothreesushi.com would be awesome but probably wouldn't work with all the other sushi competition in the immediate area.

I was just thinking onetwothree. Seriously right now the options are Jersey Mikes, Jimmy Johns, Davannis, Mesa and the Lunds I guess. Maybe a smashburger or my burger would work?

Pizza Luce has great food - I'd love to see them go in there. Their venue on Lyndale is so tiny, but the rent is likely a lot cheaper than what they'd have to pay at Calhoun Square.

Naf Naf would be perfect!! Realistically though, what are the chances of the space getting subdivided? It has such a long record of failure after failure...

Subdividing it would hopefully help that trend.
