Almost a year since the last doughnuts were served at Mucci's in St. Paul, it's been announced that they're on their way back.
The Randolph Avenue restaurant was swamped last year as chef and co-owner Chris Uhrich served his last bunch of doughnuts, after a "quality of life decision" for Uhrich and his staff was taken to stop production.
But fast-forward a year, Mucci's has a second location having opened in the Lyn-Lake neighborhood of Minneapolis earlier this year, and it looks like Mucci's famous doughnuts will soon debut west of the Mississippi.
The news came via Mucci's co-owner, restaurateur Tim Niver, who said that Mucci's in Lyn-Lake will be opening for brunch, and that doughnuts will be added to the menu.
Niver told the CityPages that they'll be changing up the doughnut offering so that they can be ordered ahead, giving chefs an idea of how much they need to make, thus lightening the workload.
