Sopranos chef J.P. Samuelson will stay on at the new restaurant.
After barely a year of business, Sopranos Italian Kitchen at West End will be closing, and a former Uptown favorite is moving in. The Star Tribune reports that Figlio will be taking over the space, and that Kam Talebi, who operates Crave, is behind the effort. The paper notes that Sopranos' last day will be July 29, and the goal is to open Figlio on Sept. 24. "It had a great stay, and we've been happy with it," Talebi told the Star Tribune of Sopranos. "But this was such a unique opportunity. I couldn't let it pass by." Sopranos chef J.P. Samuelson will reportedly stay put and work on Figlio's menu. You can read more about Samuelson—and the opening of Sopranos last year—in this Patch article.

The restaurant is located at the West End.
We can't put one past you, St. Louis Park. Readers Steve Hallfin and Bill James correctly noted below that the mystery photo this week indeed was Crave. Also, special tip of the hat to Jeff Luke (@thelongcut), who Tweeted the correct answer within minutes of the post going up. Good job, all! For those that haven't been, Crave is a restaurant at the West End featuring an American menu with Asian and Mediterranean influences. With the weather as nice as it's been lately, you can also check out their street-side patio. If you want to rate or review Crave, be sure to head to the restaurant's directory listing on Patch. Check back next week for another "Where in the Park?"

Bachelorette party, special birthday, or another celebration in order? Here are some ways to throw a fanciful fête in St. Louis Park.
There are certain occasions in life that call for a grown woman to put on her pearls and pink tutu for a glamorous night on the town. I was blessed with such an opportunity this weekend when my closest girlfriends took me out for my bachelorette party. We started the day at Vizi Salon Spa in Uptown, where four of my bridesmaids treated me to a manicure, facial and massage—with sides of champagne, fruit and cheese to boot. How did I luck out with such great friends? The girls had much more in store. After the spa day, I put on my pink H&M feathery, tutu-esque skirt (one of those oh-so-cute-but-where-can-you-ever-wear-it?-pieces), and headed to my bridesmaid Rosie's place where more friends joined us for a quick gift opening before dinner at…
