The Lynn

Minneapolis, MN United States

Peterssen/Keller Architecture


Project Description

The Lynn on Bryant is a French-inspired bistro at the lively corner of 50th and Bryant in the Lynhurst neighborhood of south Minneapolis. Our chef/client wanted the small, high-ceilinged restaurant to have a clean, modern feel that was warm and comfortable. The design responded with the use of natural materials such as barnboard, and reused material like vintage telephone insulators.

The restaurant is divided into two spaces, with casual dining in the front and a more formal dining experience in the back. Restaurant critic Rachel Hutton of Minnesota Monthly wrote, “The Lynn’s casual cafe space, which looks out on Bryant, has huge windows, a large communal table, and a spare, Scandinavian design sensibility. A narrow, barn wood-lined corridor leads to the more formal dining room—a windowless gallery that displays retro-mod installation art that looks ripped from the inside of an old television. It’s Dwell magazine come to life, except the hipsters are happy.”
