Mon Petit Cheri to open for Dinner & Wine/Beer

Message from owner Emily Rheingans: Hello everyone! I’d just like to say a heartfelt thank you to every one of you who have introduced yourselves and made us feel welcome since we opened in February. We’ve had a fabulous year so far and we can’t wait to see where the next year takes us. I’d just like to take a minute to let you all know of our upcoming plans with the bakery. In February, we are planning on adding bottled beer and wine to our menu as well as starting dinner service Thursday-Sunday evenings. We take the addition of wine and beer service as well as extended hours very seriously, and we intend to help keep our neighborhood clean, safe, quiet, and even more delicious now with more local made from scratch food. If you have any questions, please direct any e-mails to me, Emily, at mpcbakery@gmail.com. Here’s to hoping everyone has a successful December, and a great new year!

Mon Petit Cheri is located at 2401 E Franklin Ave. www.mpcbakery.com


Blue Nile Restaurant

Blue Nile Restaurant

Blue Nile closes – Site purchased by Indian Health Board

The Blue Nile Restaurant & Lounge, a long term restaurant at the gateway to Seward on Franklin Avenue, closed for business earlier this winter and this month has closed on a sale of its property. The property had been held by the Katabay family since 1996, and the Blue Nile had a good run with dynamic live music offerings and hearty Ethiopian food.

As of December 2015, the property running along Franklin from Minnehaha to 21st Avenue South has been sold to the Indian Health Board, which Redesign has been told has plans to redevelop the site.
