Around Town -- July 12, 2013

Posted: Updated:

 

This week, three Cities have new restaurants -- and a local favorite offers some fresh ideas.

We couldn't get owner Dr. Rick Becker to say much about the roof top glass feature going up in Bismarck, but he did say this:  It's going to be something that they've not experienced before -- certainly not in North Dakota."

It's called "Luft" -- German for "air" -- highlighting the new venue's four season patio feel.
There will be fire tables -- and even crowshoes and lawn bowling courts.  

However, the menu is a surprise.  KX did get a sneak peek into how the roof opens up to the sky, revealing the tree growing inside. 

Montana Furniture, Bombshell Salon and Humpback Sally's will be on the ground floor, though the second floor, coming this Fall, is another secret.  Luft is currently accepting applications.

The Owner of Harvest Brazilian Grill in Mandan on Main is opening another eatery just up the street.  The former RoundUp has been completely renovated to become Station West.  "We are bringing a neighborhood American pub.  We're going to have a restaurant in a bar and we're going to allow actually minors to come into our restaurant side of it.," says Edgar Oliveira, owner of Station West.

Station West will feature burgers using a proprietary blend of beef -- ground fresh every morning -- plus appetizers and a wide selection of drinks.  They plan to be open in two weeks.

Not to be left out, Dickinson also gets a new restaurant.  Sakura Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar is now open.  It offers traditional kitchen entrees, as well as wide variety of freshly-prepared Japanese dishes.  They're located on 14th Street West.

Though not a restaurant, since moving to their new downtown Bismarck location last year, The Memory Shack features new items, including food.  Owner Michelle Tait says they offer deli-style sandwiches from White House Cafeteria.

  Most everything in her store is handmade or a "Pride of Dakota" item.  She specializes in affordable alphabet photography and scrapbooking:  You provide the photos and she'll preserve your memories.  If you're headed to the State Fair next week, The Memory Shack says you can find them there across from the Grandstand.
