Cafe Maude has had a good run at its spot in the Armatage neighborhood of south Minneapolis, but its coming to an end next month.

The bistro at 5411 Penn Ave. S will close its doors at the end of July, according to Heavy Eater, and will be replaced this fall by a new concept from the Bartmann Group, the Twin Cities restaurant company helmed by Kim Bartmann.

Heavy Eater notes that the new concept will be headed up by chef Asher Miller, who was the head chef at the former 20:21 restaurant at the Walker, which was owned by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.

Bartmann's acquisition marks the second time she has taken over space vacated by Cafe Maude.

The bistro's second location at 1612 Harmon Place, in Loring Park, closed at the end of 2013 and the space is now in its third incarnation under Bartmann. It's been called the Third Bird and the Bearcat, but is now simply The Bird.

In a press release, the Bartmann Group says the Penn Ave. restaurant will be "refreshed" come the fall, featuring an "enhanced dining room, patio updates, a broader beverage selection and a menu that will respect the space's French heritage while adding California influences."

The new restaurant will make use of Maude's wood-fire grill and will source some of its ingredients from its own farm plot in Ramsey, Minnesota.

The Bartmann Group's other restaurants include Barbette, Tiny Diner, Bryant Lake Bowl, Pat's Tap and Bread & Pickle.
