Forum opens at City Center

Design firm Shea said Wednesday that Forum, a new restaurant concept, has opened at City Center in a space vacated by Goodfellows restaurant.

Forum opened to the public on April 23.

The one-of-a-kind City Center space is listed on the national historic register for its exceptional Art Deco interior. The Art Deco style, with its zigzag woodwork, etched mirrors and glass chandeliers was originally designed and built as the Saxe Moving Picture Theater in 1914.

Forum owners Jim and Stefanie Ringo have restored and updated the space with help from Shea and Rich Brothers Construction.

The Ringos’ first restaurant venture, Ringo, also opened in mid-April in the new Shops at West End development in St. Louis Park, Minneapolis.
