It's been a long road for Laura Bonicelli to get to 1839 Central Ave. N.E in Minneapolis. In 2009 she launched Solo By Bonicelli as a meal delivery business. As the business grew and expanded, she realized that the best hope for business' future and her quest to share sustainably raised, fresh food with the world was to open a restaurant. A Kickstarter campaign was launched in the spring of last year. Despite the funding, things still didn't fall into place so easily. The original location where she had hoped to open ultimately fell through.
Laura Bonicelli is nothing if not determined. Now, a lease has finally been signed and the Bonicelli Kitchen will open in northeast some time in the early summer.
