New diner coming to Loring Park


An old-fashioned, all-American diner will be coming soon to Loring Park.

The Nicollet Diner will be open “sometime in April, May 1 at the latest,” according to co-owner Sam Turner. Demolition in the building at 1428 Nicollet Ave. will begin this week, and after getting the architectural plans approved by the city construction is expected to take two to five weeks.

Turner said that he hopes to keep the diner open 24 hours a day on weekends, and possibly expand the diner's operations to 24/7 if there is enough demand.
