The owner of Wave Sushi is adding another new concept in the downtown Minneapolis skyway.
Egg Flip will offer Korean-style egg sandwiches and breakfast bowls made with tater tots, eggs, chives and other toppings. It’s expected to open in the next month or two – hopefully by March, its owner said – in the former Taco John’s space within the Six Quebec building.
Egg Flip’s owner, who asked not to be named because he likes to keep a low profile, opened Wave Sushi about six months ago in the skyway level of U.S. Bank Plaza. It’s going so well that he and a business partner saw an opportunity for a breakfast and lunch spot in another downtown building.
Once it launches, Egg Flip will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. An Instagram account for Egg Flip was just set up, so keep an eye out for updates there.
Other tenants in the Six Quebec skyway, branded Avenue 6Q, include My Burger, Vitality Roasting, Savoure Vietnamese Cuisine, Kadai Indian Kitchen, Bamboo Garden and Crepe Avenue. A spot recently became available when 2Bros Sports Collectibles relocated to the suburbs.
Six Quebec owner Larry Abdo previously told Downtown Voices that he’s willing to offer short-term leases to new Avenue 6Q tenants.
“My bet is on tenants with a strong will to survive, not necessarily a strong balance sheet,” Abdo said.
Similarly, other downtown landlords are being more flexible on lease terms and seeking out local businesses that will be strong amenity adds to the building, like SK Coffee, which opened earlier this month in the skyway of the 50 South Sixth building.
