Much has changed since pioneering vegan eatery Reverie was first forced to close its doors in Minneapolis. Now the restaurant turned food truck is ready to be a restaurant again, just a hop, skip from Powderhorn Park at 1517 East 35th Street. Partners Kirstin Wiegmann and Jeff Therkelsen are excited to share plans on its evolution.
In 2015 the restaurant first opened on the corner of Nicollet and Franklin, serving a radical-at-the-time fully vegan menu. In summer of 2017 the cafe and restaurant beloved for its baked goods and savory items like jackfruit tacos, was forced to shutter and cast about for a new location. Soon after, a food truck was set upon and meat-free diners rejoiced that although the mobility meant tracking Reverie down, the dishes lived to be served again. Now, the little restaurant that just won’t quit has again secured a permanent location, “with 100% more walls.”
It will reopen as Reverie Plant Based Kitchen serving lunch, dinner, brunch, beer, wine, kombucha, coffee, and other beverages.
Fans are clearly stoked about the plans as crowdfunding to build out the kitchen, construct reclaimed wood furniture, install a reclaimed mahogany wood bar saved from the original location, was an immediate success. The campaign is already at $21,000 its $25,000 goal.
