In less than two weeks, Robbinsdale powerhouse Travail will be opening the new Travail and its newest restaurant/cocktail bar, The Rookery, according to a note the restaurant sent to its Kickstarter backers (and was passed on to us by a tipster). They've got a new sound system, stone countertops and tables, two separate kitchens (one for each restaurant), and a whole lot of new kitchen toys, including a Rotary evaporator and an anti-griddle.
They'll be opening to the public on February 4th, but first they'll host a week of soft opening for Kickstarter backers who pledged $100 or more, from January 27 - February 1.
And, in other Travail news, they just posted on their Facebook page that two of their newly-hired cooks are "out first day" and they now need two more, along with an email address for prospective Travailians to send their info.
