John Kraus and Elizabeth Rose are closing the original location of Rose Street Patisserie in Minneapolis’ Linden Hills neighborhood on November 3. However, the space won’t remain empty for long. Chef Daniel del Prado who runs the adjacent and always busy Martina, will use the address to open his third restaurant.

Rose Street will continue to operate the Snelling and Selby, a stand inside Keg & Case, as well as the new Bread Lab and Cafe on West 7th. Pastry chef and world-class baker Kraus is loving the Bread Lab, where he’s teaching classes and working on apprenticeships to train the Twin Cities’ next generation of bakers. He and Rose also own and operate Minneapolis’ Patisserie 46, which is also staying put. Kraus was a teacher before he began opening bakeries packed with stunning pastries and crusty breads.

Meanwhile, del Prado opened two immediately successful restaurants within a 12 month span last year. Another eatery that’s right next to his original, Martina, seems like an easy extension. Martina first opened in the winter of 2017. He followed that success by opening Colita in the fall of 2018.

Rose Street Patisserie first opened the summer of 2016, and comes with some highly prized parking spots, something the cozy neighborhood is short on.

The location of Martina and Linden Hill’s Rose Street Patisserie were originally connected by one chef. The buildings were first redone by chef Erick Harcey for his Upton 43 and Dirty Bird restaurants with the plan to open a kitchen lab in the bakery space. He shuttered those businesses in the summer of 2017, and relocated to his hometown.

No word yet on what type of restaurant del Prado will build, but expectations are high for another hit from this chef.
