Scusi St. Paul closing, coming back as something new

St. Paul's Scusi is getting a new identity.

St. Paul's Scusi is getting a new identity.

The Scusi website has good news/bad news for fans of this neighborhood favorite. Scusi as we know it, dishing up pasta family-style, will serve its last meal on Saturday. But never fear, David Burley and Stephanie Shimp, owners of Blue Plate Restaurants, say the space will be morphing into a new concept from the company.

They aren’t revealing yet what that will be, but a recent St. Paul ordinance allowing the introduction of new liquor licenses means that the next incarnation will have a full bar. Plans are to reopen the remodeled, rechristened restaurant in June.
