jP American Bistro - Closed [MSP]

Several blog sources are reporting that jP's closed on Monday. The blogs continue by saying this is probably the first in another wave of closings...

  1. Aw, that stinks. I saw it in Igger's blog in the Rake earlier this week, but I was hoping it was just closed for the night for a private party or something... Such a bummer.

    Here's a link to JP's website announcement:

    1. re: The Dairy Queen

      I'm not surprised. With the endless construction at Lyndale & Lake, it was a challenging area to drive in.

      My wife and I ate there last fall. We thought it was good, but not really memorable. With the influx of new, interesting restaurants we've seen in the last few years, that may not be enough for survival.

    2. OH NO! i was JUST trying to get a group together there for happy hour (i know, not a great way to support a place, but hey - im poor). now this is really pissing me off.

      jP's food was spot on. i had several really great meals there, not just great-for-uptown but really tops.

      hopefully he and the crew will find work elsewhere?
