James Beard-nominated chef Jamie Malone’s Eastside flips into a Italian restaurant and market called EaTo on Friday, August 6, bringing downtown Minneapolis a fresh new spot to sample pizzas, salads, sandwiches, housemade sausages, coffees, and soft serve gelato.

EaTo will open in a few phases, starting with a new roll-up takeout window and patio service for now (305 Washington Avenue South). Malone, whose acclaimed French restaurant Grand Cafe went dark on Grand Avenue last fall, maintains a consulting role at the reimagined EaTo venture with help from chef Matt Henrickson. Monroe Enterprises, the hospitality team behind Grand Cafe and the space’s most recent iteration as Eastside, is still the owner. Initial hours are 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
