Brim, the brainchild of two runners, is a new counter-service spot that plans to “use meat as a condiment” once it takes the place of what was briefly JJ’s Wine Bistro at 1806 W. Lake Street in Minneapolis, reports the Star Tribune. Set to open on September 22nd, the cashless Uptown restaurant, owned by Patrick and Kate Sidoti, will serve Chipotle-esque bowls comprised of a rice base, sides, proteins, and dressings dished from a string of Le Creuset Dutch ovens, a hipster homemaker favorite.

Referring to the operation as “vegetable-forward” and hoping to be “approachable for all,” Kate, who cut her teeth at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City, will be Brim’s chef. Patrick, who works for the Minneapolis advertising agency Fallon will also be involved.

Ranging from $12.99 to $16.99, menu items will also include concoctions like a paleo-inspired roll that Kate has been “perfecting over the years,” according to the Strib. Guests can wash their food down with a choice of local beer, kombucha, and biodynamic wines in addition to coffee confections brewed by a Toper coffeemaker because its “less expensive than hiring a barista,” Kate explained.

Hours of operation will be from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
