We've been eyeing the restaurant location on Nicollet Avenue closely, but couldn't see past the papered up windows. Finally, Nighthawk's has shared a hard opening date. Over the weekend the restaurant announced that Wednesday May 6 will mark the first day of service.
Nighthawks, one of the most anticipated spring restaurant openings of the year, will serve diner style fare as Schoenefeld says, "Done really well." Not necessarily cheffed-up versions of classic dishes (such as his glorious take on tater tot hotdish), but straightforward burgers, hot dogs and pancakes, simply cooked to perfection.
