Bismarck – There will soon be more food options in Downtown Bismarck.
Anima Cucina will be open to everyone Friday. But there is soft opening this evening through Thursday.
Owners tell KX News they played around with several different types of cuisines to offer before settling on one everyone can enjoy.
“We specialize in Italian focused deli kinda cafe setting, we also have a wine bar and a full bakery where we do breads for our sandwiches, and rotisserie meats and veggies so we have entrees as well, so it’s kind of an all day eating place from Breakfast through dinner” said Co-Owner Ken Howard.
Howard adds they’s been working for nearly a year to get the business ready.
Anima Cucina is located at the corner of North 5th Street and East Main Avenue.
Meanwhile, Today marked day one of operations for the new Laughing Sun Brewery location in Bismark.
The new 5-thousand square foot restaurant and brewery features a wide variety of pub food as well as live music several nights a week.
We talked with the owner who tells us they worked hard to find the perfect location in Bismarck.
“It made a lot of sense to move to a more industrial area, we love this neighborhood, we think it’s underserved, we even went out into the neighborhood and we have a neighbors club and so we went door-to-door got to know our neighbors a little bit so they’re all coming in now and really from the pub side, wanted a place for everyone to get together.” Said Owner Todd Sattler
Sattler adds it took them about 10 months to renovate the building before opening. Laughing Sun is open everyday, but Monday.
It’s located in the 1-thousand block of East Front Avenue.
