Figlio rebooted on Monday at the old Sopranos location.
West End, meet Figlio. Figlio, meet West End. The former Uptown favorite—which closed in 2009 after 25 years of business—reopened today at the trendy St. Louis Park shopping destination, filling the space left vacant by Sopranos Italian Kitchen. Figlio should be right at home, according to this post on the restaurant's website last week: The Shops at West End has been affectionately nicknamed “the new Uptown” and we couldn’t agree more. Figlio lives, and right in the heart of the new Uptown, just where it should be. The new restaurant will be open Monday-Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Thursday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. If you want to check out Figlio today after work, there is a …

The new restaurant is filling Sopranos vacant space.
Figlio fans only have seven more days to wait until the restaurant opens in St. Louis Park. The former Uptown favorite is rebooting at the Shops at West End, filling the vacant Sopranos space around the corner from Crave. Figlio called Lake and Hennepin home for 25 years, but closed in 2009 as a new restaurant opened. That venture ultimately failed, and fans of the popular Figlio have been clamoring for it to reopen ever since. On its website, Figlio staffers say the new West End spot should be a great fit for the restaurant: The Shops at West End has been affectionately nicknamed “the new Uptown” and we couldn’t agree more. Figlio lives, and right in the heart of the new Uptown, just where it should be. Reservations are currently being …

Hardee's might be coming to town—would it be a local hot spot?
Yesterday, we reported that Hardee's might open a restaurant in St. Louis Park sometime in the next five years. That got people talking, as a number of folks left comments—both positive and negative—on our Facebook page. Guess fast food really strikes a chord with people. So, we decided to find out which local fast food joint residents like most. That means that Arby's, Burger King, McDonald's and Taco Bell are vying for your vote. We also made a slight exception and added in White Castle, as there is one just across Highway 7 in Hopkins. Really looking forward to Hardee's? You can vote for them instead. Hate fast food? That's an option, too. Let the fast food fight begin!

The nationwide burger chain is looking to build as many as 59 new locations around the Twin Cities in the next five years.
When Hardee's announced plans earlier this month to build as many as 59 new locations around the Twin Cities in the next five years, there was still a lot of mystery over where those restaurants would be built. That question appears to have been answered, as City Pages secured a map of planned homes for the burger joints. Local carnivores can breathe a sigh of relief, as one of the targeted spots for a new Hardee's is in St. Louis Park, though a specific spot hasn't been identified. Jim Sullivan, head of franchise development with CKE Restaurants, told City Pages the tentative locations—59 in total—all have high traffic counts, populations in the 40,000 range, good site visibility and drive-thru access. Michael Sawyer, CKE's market …
