It looks like St. Paul is getting a new restaurant that'll honor Herb Brooks

Job postings hint that a new restaurant will be coming to the Twin Cities.

Job postings hint that a new restaurant will be coming to the Twin Cities. And it will honor the famous hockey coach, Herb Brooks.

Levy Restaurants describes itself as "the leader in sports and entertainment dining," having catered Super Bowls, World Series and other big events.

The company is based in Chicago, but it has roots in Minnesota. It provides food and beverages at the Xcel Energy Center and operates the event center 317 on Rice Park.

Now it's hiring a general manager and executive chef to work at their latest business, Herbie's on the Park.

According to Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal, Minnesota Wild owner Craig Leipold and the famous hockey coach's brother David Brooks are leading the project.

That makes sense seeing David Brooks is a well-known real estate developer. An earlier Pioneer Press article says he's redeveloped more than 20 historic properties in the St. Paul area in the last 40 years.

Not a lot of information on the newest project has been released yet. The company that's hiring has really only released a name – no details as far as what type of food will be served, when it will open, or how it will commemorate the Hall of Fame coach.

But sources have told both the Business Journal and the Pioneer Press that it will be near the Xcel Energy Center. The Pioneer Press says it will be just down the street at 317 on Rice Park.

The Journal projects it will be a steakhouse of sorts.

Herb Brooks

Herb Brooks went to the University of Minnesota in 1956, playing for the Gophers.

According to the U of M, he went on to play on two Olympic teams and five U.S. national teams before becoming the Golden Gophers' head coach 1n 1972.

When Brooks took over, the U says the team wasn't doing so well. But in just two years, he took the team to its first NCAA Hockey National Championship.

Then in 1980, Brooks had an Olympic victory. The legendary win inspired the film "Miracle on Ice."

He died in 2003 at the age of 66, the Herb Brooks Foundation says.
