Alma Chef Opening Restaurant at 65th and Lyndale

After five years in the kitchen at Alex Roberts' acclaimed Restaurant Alma, Ben Rients will be opening his own restaurant, Lyn 65 Kitchen & Bar, at 65th St. and Lyndale Ave., according to Rick Nelson at the Star Tribune. The 70-seat restaurant will serve classic American food and bar food, with plans for a rotating entree-for-two (fried chicken, steak) for less than $15. Rients also plans on including up to 10 flatbreads on the menu and complimentary soft-serve ice cream at dessert.

Rient has been working on the project for nearly two years, and he is hoping to open Lyn 65 Kitchen & Bar in November.
