At least three new restaurants have popped up onto the radar in the last week. Details are thin, as is the case at this stage of things but I have done the usual digging and posted a variety of links to the information that is available so that you can be as informed as ever about the new places opening up around town.
1. Las Tortillas Mexican Restaurant
15051 Crestone Ave
Rosemount, MN 55068
According to the Star Tribune here’s what the restaurant will look like:
“We’re looking to do fresh tortillas made in house, handmade margaritas, traditional Mexican fare, as well as the more standard American-Mexican style.”
2. The Onion Grille
100 Sibley St
Hastings, MN 55033
According to the Star Gazette article, the owner will be trying to recapture the recently close Levee Cafe’s “fine dining” with its popular menu items such as:
long-standing favorites that patrons of the Levee were used to, like the creamed artichoke dip, the chicken wild rice soup, the salmon BLT, the liver and onions, the Levee salad and the chicken ala king, to name a few.
14871 Granada Ave
Apple Valley, MN 55124
The only information I can find is a completely empty Secretary of State filing and the City Council Agenda here.
Spoon will be taking over the Mandarin Buffett location in the outdated strip mall behind McDonald’s. Aside from that small detail and the trendy single word name, no other details are available at this time.
Are you aware of any other restaurant openings coming up in the South Metro? What do you think of the three listed here? Which one of the three here interest you the most and why? Do you consider the menu items listed for The Onion Grille to be “fine dining”? Whatever you have to say about these three new restaurants opening in Apple Valley, Hastings and Rosemount go ahead and comment on!
