Mucci’s second location opens in the Lyn/Lake neighborhood tonight. The beloved red-sauce restaurant that has been serving crowds fried chicken-topped pizzas, piles of fresh pasta, and lasagna called “layers of love,” has expanded to Minneapolis. At the helm are familiar faces to St. Paul fans including chef Chris Uhrich, owner Tim Niver, and general manager Heather Mady.
The larger restaurant space allows for the crew to expand what is served, including using the location’s wood fire oven to char pizza crusts. The address also comes with a full liquor license, so that means cocktails along with wine and beer. Perhaps most exciting, the new location accepts reservations.
Mucci’s in Minneapolis officially opens for business at 5 p.m. this evening.
This new restaurant replaces Meyvn, a bagel and all day Mediterranean restaurant.
