Abdo family behind new North Loop restaurant Dalton & Wade
According to city documents, Dalton & Wade will open a 4,000-square foot establishment on the first floor of the building. D&W’s ownership (each with about a one-quarter stake) includes Corey Abdo, John Abdo, Paul Abdo and Daniel O’Brien.
John and Paul Abdo are president and vice president respectively of My Burger, a Minneapolis fast-casual burger chain that was launched by their parents, Larry and Caryl Abdo, in 2004. Corey Abdo is senior restaurant manager at the Nicollet Island Inn.
Representatives of Dalton & Wade couldn’t be reached for comment. A public hearing for the bar and restaurant will be held Feb. 28.
According to the filing, Dalton & Wade’s menu items will include chicken wings, cheese plates, soups, salads, burgers, fish, chicken and desserts ranging in price from $6 to $20. Its proposed hours are 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Sunday. There will be seating for 110 guests inside and room for another 42 guests on a patio.
Minneapolis-based Studio M Architects Inc. was listed on the project site plans.
Houston-based Hines finished its 224,000-square-foot T3 office building last November in the thriving North Loop area. Its key tenant will be Seattle-based retail giant Amazon.com, which is expected to lease the top floors of the building for at least 100 employees. The main floor of the building has common spaces, a Bar Method fitness studio and a fitness center for tenants
T3 stands for transit, timber and technology. The project is near the Target Field transit station and Cedar Lake Trail.
