Developers of The Dayton's Project have announced plans to transform the former JB Hudson Jewelers store into a restaurant space open to the public in spring 2020. Located at Nicollet and 8th Street, the restaurant will include indoor and outdoor patio seating and a dedicated entrance on Nicollet.

“Converting the JB Hudson space into a restaurant will offer a completely original dining experience in one of the most historic and iconic buildings in Minneapolis,” says Tricia Pitchford, principal and senior vice president of leasing, Mid-America Real Estate.

In addition to the soon-to-be restaurant in JB Hudson, The Dayton's Project will also house a 45,000-square-foot food hall and market curated by James Beard Award-winning chef Andrew Zimmern and Robert Montwaid of Gansevoort Market in New York. 

“The variety of fresh, local food offerings you will find at The Dayton’s Project is unparalleled in the Twin Cities,” says Pitchford. “This project has a world-class culinary team launching the food hall, and together with a new restaurant opportunity in JB Hudson, elevates the Minneapolis dining landscape.”

Hotel Emery and Fleur de Lis are teaming up for a Brunch, Blooms and Bottomless Bubbly event on Sunday, Oct. 20. The event will include a family-style brunch from Emery's restaurant Giulia and executive chef  Josh Hedquist and a floral design session instructed by Fleur de Lis experts. With a lobby filled with lush greenery, Emery makes for the perfect location for a floral-focused event.

 

This October, the Xcel Energy Center and Saint Paul RiverCentre will celebrate a decade since the launch of their unrivaled sustainability program, as well as their recent LEED Platinum Certification. 

 

Due to its influx of new hotels and venues, hosting of major events like the Super Bowl LII, vibrant music and food scene, and value, Minneapolis has been named a destination on the rise in 2020 by CWT Meetings & Events.
