Travail Kitchen and Amusements is open in Robbinsdale. The team of chefs that recently left Victory 44, notably Mike Brown and James Winberg, opened the small eatery, and you can expect much of the same cooking. A rotating chalkboard of about 20 items will feature highly-crafted cheffy nosh, sans the pretension (you're in Robbinsdale, natch).
Pizza Luce is opening another location on Aug 9 in Hopkins right off the Cedar Lake bike trail. The invite-only pre-opening party is on the 8th, and lucky fans can win an invite. All proceeds from that night will support the ICA food shelves.
