Owner Mary Colon said on Tuesday that she will hold a soft-opening for the long-awaited restaurant on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. The restaurant, located at 300 13th Ave. NE, will be open for regular business beginning on Monday, Colon said.
Colon, the former owner of the popular Northeast Minneapolis hangout Audubon Coffee, had originally planned to open the restaurant this summer. Delays getting city approvals have prevented that from happening.
Colon said she is still waiting for her liquor license, so she will be unable to serve alcohol for at least six weeks. But just being open is a relief and a milestone to be celebrate, she said.
“We’re ready to hit the ground running,” she said.
The restaurant, which sits next to The Anchor Fish & Chips, will offer an eclectic variety of ethnic dishes inspired by the neighborhood as well as coffee.
