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.”
