Parkway Pizza is scheduled to open in December in the old Nuff/Amici space. Owner San Nestingen says he has been looking at the neighborhood—Johnson Street in particular—for the past six years. However, his involvement in a currently owned restaurant in South Minneapolis has prevented him from obtaining the property when it was previously available.
That restaurant, also “Parkway Pizza,” opened iin the Longfellow neighborhood in 2006. Sam moved the restaurant to its current location at 4359 Minnehaha last March because of its larger capacity: double the seating and 50 percent more kitchen capacity.
On this special day, Saturday, October 5th, the Northeast Farmers Market will be a full-fledged restaurant! We bring together the tastemakers of Northeast to one convenient location for our very own “Eat Street”. Explore the flavors of our neighborhood restaurants during this Fall event!
