  • D’Amico Catering Announces the Opening of Bushel & Peck Café

     
    POSTED April 28, 2017
     

D'Amico Catering has officially opened Bushel & Peck, the Mill City Museum's new cafe. 

An approachble lunch menu, new weekend brunch, and wine and beer options round out the menu. Later this spring, the cafe will fill with fully updated décor; a food truck also is in the works.

“D’Amico & Partners has operated the Mill City Café and event space since the Minnesota Historical Society opened the museum in 2003,” says Larry D’Amico, co-owner of D’Amico& Partners. “The entire Downtown East area has evolved and grown dramatically since the museum opened. It was time for an update so we could not only better serve museum visitors but also expand the café’s service and broaden its community appeal to also include local residents and employees of nearby businesses who have limited lunch or early dinner options, farmer’s market attendees, riverfront visitors and passersby, downtown event goers and others.”

The name and concept are a tie-in to the Mill City Famer's Market, which runs year-round at the museum. Dean Taylor, general manager, will continue to run the café.

Café hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Mondays during July and August) and Sunday 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Mill City Museum was D’Amico Catering’s first exclusive vendor partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society.

The two organizations announced a new partnership last year at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul, where D’Amico Catering manages the event spaces and the museum café.

“We are thrilled to continue our wonderful partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society, and we look forward to working on some of their other intriguing venues in the near future,” says D’Amico.

Graves Hospitality has proposed plans for a future development on the current site that will necessitate the immediate closing of Bradstreet Craftshouse in Minneapolis.

The restuarant opened in 2009 in the downtown Minneapolis Graves 601 Hotel. In 2014, Graves Hospitality sold the hotel and the Bradstreet concept was moved to the Lowry Hill neighborhood of Minneapolis. It opened again in 2015. In approximately 14 months, Bradstreet will open within the InterContinental Hotel, which will be directly connected by skyway to Terminal One of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

 

One highway exit away from Minnesota's largest city, there’s an oasis of free parking, great shopping and a bustling social scene. “We like to say that we’re so close to Minneapolis, we share a ZIP code,” says Becky Bakken, president and CEO of Discover St. Louis Park. “We’re convenient and near all the experiences and activities that meeting and event participants want.” 

 

The fast-casual Chicago-style food concept, Portillo’s, will be opening its first Minnesota location at 8450 Hudson Rd. in Woodbury at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 11. The new location marks the brand’s 50th restaurant opening.

The restaurant will feature a 1920s theme with décor inspired by the Prohibition era. The restaurant will include seating for more than 200 guests, with double drive-thru lanes and an outdoor patio.
