MINNEAPOLIS - Some Minneapolis restauranteurs are teaming up with a St. Paul developer to bring a food-driven marketplace to St. Paul's Schmidt Brewery.
The development, called "Keg & Case," will feature anchor tenants and original restaurant concepts by Nick Rancone and Thomas Boemer, owners of Corner Table and Revival. The project will also include Christina Nguyen and Birk Grudem, owners of Hola Arepa, and Caleb Garn of 5-Watt Coffee.
The market is expected to be a mix of local favorites as well as a showcase for new businesses.
"The Keg & Case development will help bring some of the most celebrated local restaurateurs to one of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in the state. This project is the perfect mix of a historic, iconic location together with creative and visionary small business owners. When fully completed, the Keg & Case will be a destination for people in the neighborhood, community and across the upper midwest," said St. Paul developer Craig Cohen in a news release.
The developing team hopes the market will be a neighborhood landmark offering dining and cultural events throughout the year. The indoor market will have 22,000 square feet of commercial space with an additional 10,000 square feet on the market's mezzanine.
Groundbreaking for the "Keg & Case" is expected this fall.
