NORTH LOOP — Washington Avenue is becoming another Eat Street. The latest newcomer is the restaurant Borough and below it, the bar Parlour.

The restaurant and bar are set to open Jan. 2 in the new apartment building ElseWarehouse at 730 Washington Ave. N.

The new restaurant will be led by chefs Nick O’Leary and Tyler Shipton — alumni of the acclaimed restaurant Travail in Robbinsdale.

Borough will have vintage decor and seat 120. In a news release, the food is described as “contemporary American cuisine using modern techniques and locally sourced ingredients with the menu changing on a chef’s whim.”

Veteran bartender Jesse Held, who has worked at the Town Talk Diner, Marvel Bar and Eat Street Social, will oversee the Parlour bar. It will have classic cocktails and a mix of craft brews. Mixologists will also provide personalized tableside cocktail service.
