The Dish bistro hopes to gain breakfast vibe

Many have come before, but the owner and chef of the Dish hope none will come after. They are opening a neighborhood bistro at 229 62nd Ave. N in a strip center that formerly housed the Brown Dog Cafe and other eateries.

The Dish will serve breakfast and lunch, offering a variety of egg dishes, sandwiches and salads with a nod to vegetarians, vegans and diners looking for whole grain.

"If you look down Fourth Street, there are 25 other restaurants that serve dinner but not many places do breakfast," said chef Jason Kingsley.

Jim Wilson, owner of the 66-seat restaurant, was a waiter at Pepin for seven years. "I want this to be a place where you remember people's names or she likes two lemons and Splenda," he said.
