Opening soon, a new deli and bagel shop with a cocktail bar at the corner of Lake Street and Bryant Avenue in Minneapolis.
It's called Meyvn, and it's being brought to the Lyn-Lake neighborhood by the team at St. Paul's wildly popular Lowertown restaurant Saint Dinette, owner Tim Niver, executive chef Adam Eaton, and general manager Laurel Elm.
Coming with them across the Mississippi is Eaton's signature Montreal-style bagels, which will be complimented by an array of deli meats and smoked fish.
Meyvn (901 W. Lake St.) will feature breakfast, lunch and dinner options, carry out services and a full bar. Niver tweeted that he hopes to open in June, at which point he'll have an indoor/outdoor bar and patio area.
MSP Magazine talked to Eaton, who's moving from Saint Dinette to Meyvn, who said that along with the bagels, customers can expect hot pastrami sandwiches, Eastern European-style pierogies, deli salads and "six or eight sorts of house-smoked fish."
