The Uptown dining scene is losing another restaurant. 

New Bohemia, a German-inspired beerhall known for massive pretzels and wurst, is shutting down its Lyn-Lake location in Minneapolis.

That's according to a report by City Pages, which says the restaurant will close at the end of this weekend, "in what’s beginning to feel like dominoes cascading for the mini-chain."

As the paper notes, this comes just two weeks after New Bohemia closed its original location in the Northeast neighborhood. 

Meanwhile, Business Journal is reporting that it will soon by replaced by Famous Dave's, which closed its nearby Calhoun Square location two months ago. 

The paper says Famous Dave's made the owners of New Bohemia "an offer we couldn't refuse."

Famous Dave's will open there in December, the Star Tribune reports. 

The closure leaves three New Bohemia locations: St. Paul, Golden Valley and Roseville.
