Can anybody confirm rumor- Dayton's son's restaurant?

We live on 1st St. North in the warehouse district in Minneapolis, and there's an older building a couple blocks up that is undergoing serious renovation. Rumor has it that Mark Dayton's son purchased it and is planning on opening a restaurant there. Has anybody else heard anything about this? Just curious...

  1. Where on 1st St N? Trocadero? Closer or further from Origami?

        Could we get a bit more info please? This is quite vague...

        1. re: ilikepeas

          do you have any more details? What kind of restaurant, and when might it be opening?

            Grad_girl - Can you tell us where it is? Which block of 1st?

            1. re: Foureyes137

              Yes, it's at 1st St. North & 2nd Ave. Major construction going on right now, with the entire 2-story building surrounded by scaffolding and plastic. The street in front also has a lane closed for what appears to be utility work related to the project.

              The building was formerly owned by an eccentric old man and full of junk, so they obviously have a lot of work to do to get it ready for anything.

              It's across the street and down the block from the former Trocaderos space.

                Wow! That building!? You're right...it's going to need a lot of architectural rehab before it can be a restaurant...but what an awesome space it could end up being.

                If only the Lune would open back up :(

        2. Not my details to share, but the concept sounded cool as I heard it. A girl's gotta keep some secrets.

          1. There is a sign on the building that says Peer House, coming in summer of 2011. I tried googling it, but there's not a formal website yet. Very intrigued by this one.....

                Parallevar, thank you so much for posting solid, publishable info when it became available. It's a nice clear example of useful info that helps these Chowhound boards accomplish what they're intended to do.

            1. More information on this restaurant is emerging:

              ...they also have a Facebook page, and are listed on Open Table but are not taking reservations yet.

              1. Looks like they had a soft opening yesterday and are taking reservations now. Not sure when we'll make it over there, but look forward to the reviews.
