Well Seasoned—the gastropub slated to open in Midtown Global Market—may be permanently stalled, reports Stephanie March at Mpls.St.Paul.Magazine. Construction has been stalled for a while, March says, and now she hears that, due to lack of financing, the restaurant is "dead as a doornail."
But, given owner Nick Miller's recent troubles at one of his other restaurants, The Hanger Room in Willernie, maybe the shutter is not so surprising. Miller is a former owner of St. Paul's The Happy Gnome and also a current co-owner of Buster's on 28th. Evan Connolly, the former executive chef of Buster's, had been tapped to run the Well Seasoned kitchen.
