North Loop Restaurant Getting A New Look

As it celebrates its 7th anniversary in the North Loop, Borough is about to undergo extensive remodeling that will include new decor, a few changes to the menu, and a “trolley captained by a chef” on weekends, roaming the dining room with small plates aboard.

After its 7th annual Borough Block Party on September 8th, the restaurant will close for a week before unveiling the changes on September 16th.

They’ll include more banquette seating, an updated chef’s counter with a chef’s tasting menu, and subtle and softer tones throughout, according to a news release from Jester Concepts, the hospitality company that runs Borough and other restaurants. The back bar will also be remodeled with lighter wood tones, glass features and new seating adjacent to the bar.

As for the menu changes, Jester says the restaurant will still showcase “the best of Minnesota’s seasons with familiar and classic flavors,” but will now include smaller plates designed to encourage guests to experience more of the menu. In addition, they’ll have limited quality specials highlighting “whole animal butchery”—with dishes crafted from all parts of the animal.

“In any business, it’s important to stay ahead of the curve and constantly reinvent yourself,” said Brent Frederick, owner of Jester Concepts. “Things are always changing and we realize the importance of being adaptable.”

During the transition, Parlour Bar will still be open on the lower level, serving those famous Parlour burgers.
