Heelan said one of the biggest challenges to luring restaurants to the North Side is that they have historically been short of them.

“The North Side is ripe for great restaurants that understand the neighborhood,” he said.

Umami’s success “just goes to show people will travel for a good restaurant,” Rose said.

“There’s a huge healthy-food movement building in north Minneapolis, with people wanting fresh produce,” Heelan said. “I think there’s a huge opportunity up here.”
