Maybe something like a historic armory or an now-empty department store?

Or a mostly-vacant Post Office, which is already off the tax rolls. ;)

The Minneapolis Armory seems like a pretty obvious candidate for such a thing, but I actually think that the locations we're talking about (MGM and Schmidt's) are more useful for residents.

Midtown Global Market. Try it sometime.
Oh, I've never heard of that... :roll:

(Which this isn't either, so.)
If something is good enough it is a neighborhood and game-changer, which this project has the ability to be. It will bring the tourists and looky-loos.

Not to forget that W 7th can have much better transit and maybe this will be a reason to finally get it..

The Zantigo in the Alliance Bank skyway food court has closed. They're now down to four locations: Bloomington, Blaine, Fridley, and Woodbury.

As good as a restaurateur as Russo is, he's a better interview.

At the new Fitzgerald's (aka Salt Cellar). Pretty impressive:

The wraparound bar is huge.
Quite a few television, but they are not obtrusive - feels very upscale not like a sports bar.
I'm not a food person, so I can't report on that.

New Bohemia is planning to open in 2017 on West 7th Street in one of the buildings going up as part of the 7 Corners Hardware redevelopment site, a block away from the Xcel Center

Baja Sol is moving into the old Four Inns location on the skyway level of the U.S. Bank building in downtown. They had crews actively working in there today and some signs up in the window to say what it will be.

Faces Mears Park in the Galtier building is closing for a remodel/retooling at the end of the year, and they're planning to reopen in March or April.

I take issue with the 'restored original brick' reference. They hacked the original plaster off the walls. :(


Also, this is my friend's restaurant and it's going to be bomb.

The remodeling project for Baja Sol in the U.S. Bank building seems to be moving along pretty quickly -- I'm not sure when they'll open, but it's possible they'll be ready by the beginning of January. There's also a Freshii location opening in the Town Square building (across from Potbelly and next to Cassie's [formerly D. Brian's]), and I suspect they're aiming for January too.

Pajarito in the former Glockenspiel location on West 7th is planning to open late this week (Dec. 22nd):

Ox Cart has decided to close on Sundays and Mondays for the winter. Not a great sign.
