Des Moines Openings, Closings, and Such

  • Closed
  • Now Open
  • Just Noticed
    • I pay such little attention to Valley West Mall that I hadn’t noticed a place called Mad Torta and Burgers, which opened last August. It’s where Noodles and Company was. Has anyone been?
  • Moving
    • The Stuffed Olive is moving to 216 Court Ave., which is basically around the corner. It’s a larger space as well.
      • I was going to tag this as chain news because I thought they were part of a larger restaurant group. However, either that changed or I was wrong. Anyone know?
      • Regardless, this should be interesting for Court Ave. Having an established place move into the cornerstone of the district might help improve the situation.
  • Coming Soon

WTF, Des Moines?

  • I don’t know why Iowa’s State Legislature hates us, but now they want to remove licensure for registered dieticians. I guess this is the Wellness-to-White-Supremacy normalization I’ve been dreading. Here’s a petition to voice your opposition, and thank you to Hannah from Rooted Yoga + Fitness for sharing this information.
  • You know that really popular bakery in Highland Park? Does anyone else have bad luck with their donuts and pastries? I’ve not been impressed so far.
  • I have been busting my ass behind the scenes, so if this feels a little personality-less, it’s because I’m fried.
