We're eagerly awaiting the opening of a handful of new restaurants in the Twin Cities this fall.

  • Some still haven't sorted out their opening dates yet, but here are the ones on our watch list.

Mr. Paul's Supper Club: Midwestern supper club meets New Orleans at this Edina restaurant, which serves steak, seafood and pasta alongside Creole and Cajun dishes. Check out their elaborate cocktails, like this smoky "Mr. Paul's Miracle Sazerac." Opening end of November.

Pagoda: After their Dinkytown location was demolished last spring, the Cantonese and Szechuan restaurant found a new home across from Rosedale Mall. The menu will be the same (including the all-you-can-eat hot pot and bottomless mimosas) and this time, they'll have parking. Opening this November.

Mother Dough Bakery: The bakery will occupy the two former Peace Coffee locations in Capella Tower. The food menu of sandwiches, salads and baked goods will be the same in both locations, but the ground-floor shop will also serve beer and wine. It remains unclear when the ground floor location will open, but the skyway store is slated for mid-November.

Union Hmong Kitchen: After 18 months as a pop-up restaurant around the Twin Cities, chef Yia Vang's spot opened in North Loop food hall Graze last week. Try their noodle bowls and protein platters. Opened Oct 29.

Kahluna: The Southeast Asian restaurant and bar is the latest project of Ann Ahmed, the chef behind Lat14 Asian Eatery and Lemon Grass Thai Cuisine. It has a space for cooking classes and a retail store with hand-crafted goods from Ahmed's home country of Laos. Opened Oct. 20.
