DOWNTOWN – Just shy of its one-year anniversary, the Forum restaurant has closed its doors. Named after the space’s original tenant, the Forum Cafeteria, Forum is just the latest in a long line of restaurants that have inhabited the space.

The original Forum restaurant closed in 1975 and briefly became Scottie’s on Seventh. The interior of the space was dismantled and relocated in 1979 to its current location inside City Center, roughly 100 feet away from its original home. Since then, the space has been home to multiple restaurants including Goodfellow’s, which survived for nearly a decade before closing its doors in 2005.

First-time restaurateur Jim Ringo took over the space last spring, around the same time he and his wife opened Ringo in St. Louis Park. That restaurant has also since closed.
