Monello, P.S. Steak will switch to sandwiches, noodles during shutdown

The Minneapolis eateries are pivoting during the closure of dine-in service.
Monello

Two acclaimed Minneapolis restaurants have announcing they are pivoting during Gov. Walz's four-week COVID-19 shutdown, offering faster, more casual fare for takeout.

Jester Concepts announced this week the switch underway at downtown Italian restaurant Monello and its respected fine dining steak restaurant P.S. Steak in Loring Park.

During the four week "pause" on dine-in service that started Friday and lasts until Dec. 18 (though may be extended), Monello will be known as "Dirty Sams," which will be slinging sandwiches for takeout.

You can find its menu here, with its sandwiches named after characters in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.

P.S. Steak meanwhile will be known temporarily as P.S. Noodles, an Asian-inspired concept that will sell a selection of noodle and rice dishes, as well as wraps.

It's also selling a selection of make-at-home cocktail kits, and wine and beer for takeout. You can find the menu here.

Restaurants and bars across Minnesota are having to transition back to takeout-only models due to the re-introduction of restrictions last seen during the spring Stay at Home order.

It comes as Minnesota faces a worsening COVID crisis, with cases, hospitalizations, and deaths rocketing over the past month, with ICU capacity nearing its peak in several regions of the state.
