Robbinsdale's Travail Kitchen & Amusements will be bringing its food wizardry to Minneapolis for a 6-month run starting in January.

The acclaimed restaurant, a key resident of Robbinsdale's now-booming main drag, will close in the New Year ahead of a move to its new $1 million home across the street, which is slated to open next summer.

Another of Travail Collective's Robbinsdale eateries, Pig Ate My Pizza, will be moving into the current Travail premises, so to keep its cooks in business while construction is carried out, Travail has found a temporary home in Minneapolis.

Beginning January, Travail will operate for 6 months at 1930 Hennepin Avenue, formerly home to restaurants including the Bradstreet Crafthouse and Auriga, and right next to Lowry Hill Meats and Burch Steakhouse.

The Travail team says it will bring its well-known, pay-in-advance, 20-course tasting menu to the location, and intends to offer "three different concepts" over the half-year period, each lasting about 2 months.

The pop-up be open for ticketed reservations between Wednesday and Saturday, along with a first-come, first-served bar.

It marks another step in a momentous year for Travail, which as well as moving into new premises in Robbinsdale in pursuit of becoming Minnesota's only Michelin-starred restaurant, is also opening a small barbecue joint in Northeast Minneapolis.
