Rock Elm Tavern
When Rock Elm Tavern opened in 2015 at its first location in Plymouth, their goal was to provide a downtown dining atmosphere within the suburbs. Rock Elm prides itself on approachable, made-from-scratch fare, and the 30 craft beers they have on tap. Troy Reding, the owner, had just completed the opening of Holman’s Table in between the openings of the two Rock Elm Taverns, in January of 2018. Holman’s table is located in the downtown St. Paul airport and is a destination for aviation fanatics and foodies alike.
With traffic in the area increasing, plans were made to open a second location of Rock Elm Tavern in Maple Grove, MN. Rapids Contract & Design worked along side Owner Troy Reding and his Interior designer Marit Zosel (a family friend) to complete the complete spatial layout. Rapids provided full packages for this project including the kitchen equipment, full furniture package as well as the bar millwork package.
The restaurant underwent a tough inspection process with two weeks left until a fully-booked soft opening weekend. With only two hours before the scheduled opening, final approval was received and Rock Elm Tavern was good to go.
The official opening is September 17, 2018. With the same friendly atmosphere, homemade food and extensive bar selection as the original, Rock Elm Tavern is sure to be a great neighborhood gathering place for Maple Grove.
