An old grocery space in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis is getting a late-night facelift, courtesy of partners (both in business and life) Jasha "J.J."Johnston and Carrie McCabe-Johnston, reports the Southwest Journal. Sandwiched between the Uptown Bulldog and Treehouse Records, their new bar and restaurant, the Nightingale, will be serving a full menu from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday and will offer brunch on Sunday.

Here are more details on what you can expect to see on the menu and when they plan to open:

The focus of the menu will be small plates and bar snacks, such as bruschetta, oysters, charcuterie plates, salads, onion rings, and burgers. A veteran of Restaurant Alma and Brasa, McCabe-Johnston will be managing the kitchen, and Johnston, who has worked for years behind the bar at Mortimer's, will manage the bar program.

To transform the old grocery store space into a beautiful, 75-seat restaurant, McCabe and Johnston have enlisted the skills of Rachel Kate, a local designer who is now recognized on the national stage thanks to her appearance as a contestant on season 7 of HGTV's Design Star. If you want an idea of what the space will look like, check out McCabe-Johnston and Rachel Kate's shared Pinterest board to see their design inspiration.

The team plans to open the Nightingale sometime in September.
