Lisa Hanson resurfaces, opening Mona
Farm-to-table dining coming to downtown?
Lisa Hanson, onetime chef de cuisine at Corner Table, will be opening Mona in downtown Minneapolis. Hanson has most recently been running her own Mona Lisa catering, and she will likely bring her passion for local, sustainable farming and deft culinary skills to an underutilized corner of downtown.
Mona will replace Black Bamboo on the ground floor of the Accenture tower. Slated to open in the spring, the restaurant will seat about 100 people, according to Jim Smart of Smart Architects, which is designing the space, as first reported by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal.
