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.”

Earlier this month, The Dayton’s Project unveiled the first of several installations in the Dayton’s skyways. The whole development is on schedule to open this spring and will include retail shopping and direct access to the food hall on the lower level.  

 

CWT was recently awarded a $450,000 grant by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, one of only six Minnesota companies selected this year.

The grant comes from the Job Creation Fund, which targets companies that are creating high-paying jobs in the state, while making the needed capital investments to support that growth. CWT is aiming to recruit 75 people over the next three years. It’s currently renovating its leased spaces at 701 Carlson Parkway to make way for the new hires.

 

The Minnesota State Fair is essentially a red carpet event for Minnesotans. That is, if red carpet events include food that is either fried, on a stick, or both. To celebrate the great love that Minnesotans have for their state, Radisson Blu Mall of America is offering state fair-themed meetings.
