After a brief holdover as BoneYard, the restaurant address occupied for years as an Old Chicago has been reborn with a Mexican flare. Salsa a la Salsa has opened a third outpost of its richly sauced, deeply satisfying Mexican cuisine.
The location at 2841 Hennepin Avenue in Uptown has an expanded food menu over the original Nicollet Avenue location and A la Salsa, the Midtown Global Market location. In addition to the favorites like the long-stewed mole and the grandmotherly pozole, there are gluten-free and vegetarian offerings. There is also a much larger bar offering.
Kaskaid Hospitality, owners of the Crave chain of restaurants in addition to Union in downtown Minneapolis had purchased the building from Old Chicago and opened BoneYard early in 2014. Last month they announced that they were closing the Southern-fried concept and that Salsa a La Salsa would be taking over operation of the space.
Lorenzo Azria first opened Salsa a La Salsa on the edge of downtown Minneapolis in 2003 serving Minneapolis cuisine from central Mexico. The second A la Salsa location opened with the reborn Midtown Exchange building in 2005.
Salsa a la Salsa is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. today.
