Revival slated for expansion on Nicollet

Revival is growing at 43rd & Nicollet.

With current weekend wait times at Revival ranging from one-three hours, an expansion late this summer aims to cut that time down to about 30 minutes.

Revival will also add takeout and delivery service at 4257 Nicollet Ave. S.

“We’ll focus a little more on a modern barbecue program,” said co-owner Nick Rancone, who said they’re adding a smoker. “A little more nose to tail like Corner Table.”

Revival will take over the former Restyle and Fun Sisters boutique spaces. The restaurant will remain open throughout nearly all of the construction.

In the meantime, a waitlist system that links to text messaging aims to ease the process.

“It’s a fun place to wait,” Rancone said. “We’re more than happy to get beer and wine while you’re waiting.”
