Last month, the Blue Plate Restaurant Company—also known for the Lowry, Highland Grill, Groveland Tap, the Edina Grill, and other Twin Cities restaurants—announced plans for a restaurant/brewery in the North Loop. Now they've got a name, and it's a mouthful: the Loose-Wiles Freehouse, a tribute to the biscuit company that used to be housed in the building. The 9,000 square foot restaurant will be located on the ground floor of the historic Loose-Wiles Building (the former HGA office building) at 701 Washington Ave. N.
The Loose-Wiles Freehouse will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner; it will also have an on-site brewery and outdoor dining. The restaurant is slated to open in September.
