Elotes Woodfired Cantina, the newest arrival at the Keg and Case food hall in St. Paul, is set to open Sept. 10. 

Co-founders Brian and Sarah Ingram, owners of the new Gnome restaurant and of Hope Breakfast Bar just down the street on West 7th, announced the grand opening Thursday.

As culinary director, celebrated Twin Cities chef Justin Sutherland will serve wood-fired meats, fish and vegetables with wet tacos, lava rock bowls, tin-can nachos and fresh ceviche. Diners can also order speciality margaritas and craft cantina cocktails. 

They've also added an expanded outdoor patio and upstairs tequila lounge to their space, which was previously held by fine dining restaurant In Bloom.

“St. Paul is our home and so special to us," Brian Ingram said earlier this summer, saying he wanted to add to the Mexican-influenced cuisine in the area after previously living in southern California and Mexico.

"Sarah and I are so grateful for the opportunity to bring another of our concepts to this city and to the impressive space at Keg and Case so that we can continue our work in serving the community by creating jobs, building spaces to gather and eat quality food, and give back to those that need assistance.”

Like the Ingram's other restaurants, Elotes will give back to the community through their nonprofit Give Hope. A minimum 3 percent of proceeds will go to charitable causes.

"It’s amazing what Brian and Sarah have done for St. Paul, their commitment to this community is consistent with what we have built with Keg and Case, being a community hub,” Keg & Case developer and managing partner Craig Cohen said in the news release. "We are excited about the vibrancy and heart they will bring not only to Keg and Case but the entire Schmidt complex."
