However, a new concept for the eatery is in the works, according to Stephanie March of Mpls. St. Paul Magazine. She reports on her blog that Jack Riebel, the chef behind the critically acclaimed Butcher and the Boar, is working with Joe Kaplan, the owner of Joe's Garage, on a new restaurant for the space.
The Star Tribune named Butcher and the Boar the 2012 Restaurant of the Year.
Joe Kaplan, owner of Joe's Garage, said the team working on the new concept is still finalizing details, but the plan is to have the new restaurant up and running by end of summer/early fall.
Joe's Garage opened July 1996.
