After months of planning and hard work, Como Dockside is just about ready for its close-up. Throughout May, the newly remodeled restaurant will be open with limited hours due to outdoor construction.
St. Paul Parks and Recreation will be busy building additional outdoor seating and improving the patio and paths, all work that has to wait until May due to weather limitations.
The much-anticipated lakeside service window should be open by Memorial Day weekend, according to co-owner Jon Oulman. Inside the gleaming new space, food service will gradually ramp up in May as new staff gets trained in and more hours, such as breakfast service, are added.
“We want to make sure we move slowly into this so we are confident in our ability to deliver,” Oulman said. A grand opening is planned for Sunday, May 31. Details and hours will be added to Como Dockside’s website, www.comodockside.com, as they become finalized.
