Erik Forsberg


Dan Kelly’s Pub, Erik the Red




Restaurateur Erik Forsberg is becoming a force in downtown Minneapolis hospitality. This year he moved his Devil’s Advocate bar into the old Dan Kelly’s space while refining Erik the Red, his “barbarian” barbecue bar across from U.S. Bank Stadium. Forsberg has shown a knack for fresh concepts that feel authentic—and just work. Look for more from him as downtown landlords continue their search for food concepts that pay the ground-level rent.
