Long-awaited opening of The Nicollet Diner scheduled for end of June


The opening of The Nicollet Diner in Loring Park is finally within reach for owners Sam Turner and Dion Coker after a long year and a half of waiting and unexpected complications. 

Turner was the director of operations for an Internet service provider when he and Coker decided to try something new and open up a restaurant.

“It came pretty natural to us,” Turner said. “Most people come up with a concept and start looking for real estate and then work on it, but we backed into the concept the other way, without any plans for the real estate.”
