Anima Cucina in downtown Bismarck at the corner of 5th Street and Main Ave will open this Friday, November 2nd.

The former boutique space in downtown Bismarck has been refurbished into an Italian eatery and wine bar.

The operators of Fireflour, Kenny and Kendra Howard are opening the new restaurant downtown. In an interview with KX News, Kenny Howard talked about settling on a particular type of cuisine to serve at their new establishment:

We specialize in Italian focused deli kinda cafe setting, we also have a wine bar and a full bakery where we do breads for our sandwiches, and rotisserie meats and veggies so we have entrees as well, so it's kind of an all day eating place from Breakfast through dinner.

A soft opening is happening tonight (October 30th) at Anima Cucina and will go through Thursday.
