Convoluted history of Fuji Ya site, a re-telling

Minneapolis riverfront mavens can get an update later this week on what the future may hold for the late Reiko Weston’s Fuji Ya restaurant.

It hasn’t been a fine dining establishment since the doors closed in 1990. That’s when the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board purchased the building through eminent domain for $3.5 million to help make way for parkway expansion.

There’s not enough space in the Cities blog to rehash the long and litigious contemporary history of the Fuji Ya site.

Minneapolis architect Tom Meyer will sketch the big picture – past and present – Thursday evening at 6:30 at the Mill City Museum in downtown Minneapolis.
