The Cuningham Group has been selected to design the Ling & Louie's Asian Bar & Grill planned for Nicollet Mall.
The proposed 10,500-square-foot restaurant, billed as a "cross between P.F. Chang's and Kona Grill" with a mix of Asian and American menu items," is slated to open spring of 2014 at 9th & Nicollet.
The restaurant will have private dining room, mezzanine dining and a rooftop bar patio. "Not only does the building have great bones, but the way the rooftop is perfectly nested in between the adjacent buildings will make it the most sought after rooftop in the city," said Cuningham Group Project architect Gregory Houck.
