Wayzata Eatery closes, Taher opens St. Louis Park Woodfire Grill

Taher closes Wayzata Eatery, but opens St. Louis Park Woodfire Grill.
Wayzata Eatery, the Taher Corporation's first foray into the restaurant business, has shut its doors, reports Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine.

The Minnetonka-based food service company previously closed its spinoff Alaska Eatery in St. Louis Park, but sister restaurant Nordeast Eatery remains open. Taher also owns Forepaugh's and the Timber Lodge Steakhouse chain.

Most of the Wayzata Eatery staff has moved to Taher's new Woodfire Grill, which replaced a Timber Lodge last week with internationally inspired, locally sourced, fire-cooked dishes. (Before that, the space was Alaska Eatery, but, for those with long memories, it was probably best known as the home of Shelley's Woodroast).

St. Louis Park Woodfire Grill
6501 Wayzata Boulevard, St. Louis Park
952.345.0505; www.slpwoodfiregrill.com

Woodfire Grill menu is totally different than Alaska Eatery. Far better chef inspired food with lots of international twists. I have been there 4 times in two weeks and have had nothing but solid, decent experiences. I expecially like the back party room overlooking the patio and the new tv's in the bar. The place is warm and cozy and the prices are suprisingly reasonable.


I wonder if it will be as undistinguished as the Alaskan Eatery.


Well then I wish them luck, it just seems the commercial center of that area has shifted to the West End complex. Though I assume they're well positioned for the lunch rush.
