New Restaurant for Walker’s Point?
La Pina restaurant and late-night bar plans November opening in space where Triskele's is still operating.
A new owner is taking over Triskele’s — though the upscale American restaurant is still operating, albeit on a more limited basis.
Called La Pina, the restaurant and bar has a target opening date of Nov. 1, according to a recently-filed license application.
After nearly 15 years in business, co-owners Lynn Winter and JoLinda Klopp listed Triskele’s, 1801 S. 3rd St., and the surrounding property for sale last spring. The 1,540-square-foot restaurant sits on a 3,400-square-foot lot in the Walker’s Point neighborhood.
The business is listed as a turnkey operation and priced at $349,000 — significantly steeper than the 2021 assessed value of $134,500, likely spurred by the current real estate climate.
Patrick Todd is listed as the sole owner of La Pina, a restaurant and late-night bar. Todd, a veteran of SURG Restaurant Group and manager of the hospitality company Nicholsworth Group, was previously general manager at now-closed Mikey’s.
La Pina expects to generate 80% of its revenue from alcohol, with 20% from food sales, according to the license application.
City records do not indicate any plans for construction or remodeling.
Proposed hours for La Pina would be Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m., Friday from 3 p.m. to 2:30 a.m., Saturday from noon to 2:30 a.m. and Sunday from noon to 2 a.m.
Neither Todd nor the owners of Triskele’s could be reached for comment by the time of publication.
