There are some changes coming to the dining scene in Linden Hills, Minneapolis, with Rose Street Patisserie closing its original location.
The bakery at 2811 W. 43rd St. will close its doors this Sunday, it was announced Monday, but won't be vacant for long.
That's because Daniel Del Prado, the culinary genius behind the adjacent Martina restaurant, and nearby Colita at Penn and 54th, is moving in to open his third restaurant.
Rose Street, which was opened by chef/owner John Kraus and CEO Elizabeth Rose in spring 2016, selling artisan baked goods and coffee, will live on through its two locations in St. Paul, on Snelling Avenue and at Keg & Case food hall in St. Paul's West Seventh neighborhood.
At this stage, Del Prado has not revealed what style of restaurant will be opening at the Rose Street space, but a press release from the companies say the move comes "after a year of conversations" with Kraus.
Kraus wanted to focus more on St. Paul cafes and his "Bread Lab" training program in St. Paul, while Del Prado was "itching to open a new spot but didn't want to spread himself too thin."
The Rose Street location was perfectly, therefore, given its proximity to Martina.
"Danny’s a sublime talent. I’m excited to see what magic he works in the space," Kraus said in a statement.
During his time at Rose Street, Kraus became the first American-born member of the 100-member Relais Desserts Group.
Meanwhile, Del Prado's first restaurant, Martina, is a predominantly seafood spot inspired by Argentinian cuisine, while Colita opened last year, serving food from the Oaxacan region of Mexico.
