Tim Niver


Saint Dinette




One of the best-liked people in the often snarky local restaurant community, Tim Niver operates two vastly different restaurants: cozy neighborhood Italian eatery Mucci’s and downtown St. Paul’s sleek Saint Dinette. They are modern versions of familiar and loved dining models, with hospitality at the center. Niver likes to innovate rather than replicate. He is searching for sites in Minneapolis for a Jewish deli concept that he hopes to open by early next year.
