Are we seeing daylight at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel? This year has been full of heartaches, economical disasters, and too much time at home ( so many confined to their very own four-walls of hell ). There is some hope, however, with North Dakota Governor recently lifting curfew on bars and restaurants. According to KFYRTV with the new year just hours away now, there are multiple new restaurants poised to open here in Bismarck. New beginnings are on the horizon for restaurants opening in Bismarck. Despite financial and construction setbacks restaurant owners experienced this past year, dozens of new businesses are planning to open their doors year-round in 2021. 

           We are all thirsting for our NORMAL lives to come back to us. This is wonderful news, for it brings some encouraging, positive, MOVING FORWARD momentum. These next couple of sentences will be SWEET to all you tasty treat lovers - a new gourmet cookie shop will begin baking on 43rd Street in February. Crumbl Cookies is slated for suite 120 in the Shoppes on 43rd. Across State Street, a second Culvers location will replace this for sale sign next to McKenzie River.

           The owners of Butterhorn have made some plans to expand - their new restaurant will be called Shelter Belt ( specializing in bar food ). We all have been chomping at the bit for the arrival of Chick-fil-A at Kirkwood Mall - and a second Five Guys will open up as well. Bring it on, is what I say!
