Lou Nanne’s is getting a rebrand.
The Edina steakhouse, the product of local National Hockey League legend Lou Nanne and restaurateur Michael McDermott, is flipping its name while aiming for a more approachable concept.
Tavern23 will still offer the steaks and burgers that were most popular in the restaurant’s former iteration, but an expanded lineup of casual options – including sushi, wood-fired pizzas and wok dishes – will also be available, as will many gluten-free dishes such as pizza, flatbreads and burgers.
“By listening to our customer’s feedback, we learned that while they loved Lou Nanne’s steakhouse, they were looking for a more casual experience with a wide variety of menu offerings for lunch, happy hour and dinner,” McDermott said in part, in a release.
Tavern23, a nod to Nanne’s longtime hockey number, will also feature an expanded bar and lounge area. Lou Nanne’s opened in March of 2016.
