Best Restaurant Expansion - Cossetta - 2013 Best of MN

  • May 19, 2013 - 9:01 PM

Here’s how Cossetta marked its centennial: Owner Dave Cossetta plowed $10 million into his family’s business. The dramatic transformation has remade and improved the classic elements of this W. 7th Street landmark — the well-stocked market, the casual pizzeria and pasta café — while deftly incorporating an elaborate bakery and gelateria along with adding Louis, a sit-down restaurant and bar (and now-requisite rooftop seating area, this one boasting an extraordinary river valley view). With this kind of one-stop experience, no wonder the family expanded the business’ name, too. It’s now Cossetta Alimentari, which is the Italian way of saying grocery stores. 211 W. 7th St., St. Paul; 651-222-3476, cossettas.com
