It’s no secret that many Minnesotans love hockey. Across the state, people sleep, breathe, and eat the sport. And opening this month, fans will be able to devour even more hockey at Herbie’s on the Park.
To honor the late and great “Miracle on Ice” coach and Minnesota legend, Herb Brooks, Minnesota Wild owner, Craig Leipold, is opening a restaurant in downtown St. Paul on September 24.
Nestled inside the historic Minnesota Club, Herbie’s on the Park will be guided by general manager Aaron Johnson, current co-owner of The Strip Club, and executive chef Tim Kovacs, former head chef at Basil’s Restaurant and the Marquette Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. The 208-seat restaurant will offer a contemporary tavern menu, handcrafted cocktails, and an extensive wine and craft beer list.
“People who live in and love St. Paul appreciate the ritual of being together—to socialize, talk and share stories,” Johnson said in a press release. “We look forward to welcoming guests to this historic building, and creating a space where people of all ages can do just that—gather for happy hour or an amazing meal among friends.”
