Celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern's long-awaited Twin Cities restaurant, Lucky Cricket, will finally open its doors next week.

The restaurant, located at the Shops at West End in St. Louis Park, will start serving customers this Monday.

The Bizarre Foods host has long wanted to open a restaurant in the Twin Cities, and his Lucky Cricket will serve Chinese cuisine inspired by his experiences in the Orient.

It will also be home to a thatched Tiki bar serving a variety of traditional, alcoholic Tiki drinks and a selection of non-alcoholic concoctions.

The food menu will focus on small-plate foods and shareable dishes, with variations on foods in the Cantonese, Fujianese, Hunan, Shandong and Sichuan styles.

It will include dishes such as house-made dim sum, Chinese barbecue and hand-pulled noodles.

Taking over the space formerly home to Bonefish, Lucky Cricket will have space for more than 200 diners.

It will open daily for lunch and dinner, with longer hours on weekend.
