Tapas restaurant coming to south Sioux Falls

A new restaurant specializing in tapas, or small plates, is coming to south Sioux Falls.

Amanda and Doug Ladenburger work in financial services but have been working on a concept for a restaurant for several years.

They chose the corner of 85th Street and Western Avenue to start No Regrets. They have lived in the neighborhood for the past few years and found limited options when going out to eat.

“We know how much we enjoy going someplace that’s a really comfortable atmosphere with good food, and we thought we’d bring it to our neighborhood,” Amanda Ladenburger said.

The concept draws on the growing popularity around the country of tapas restaurants. Doug, who travels often for business, has stopped at many of them for photos and menu inspiration.

“When we go out for dinner, a lot of time we end up ordering off an appetizer menu and getting three or four things and sharing, which is kind of like what tapas is,” Amanda added. “We like to eat rather healthy, not everything deep fat fried, so we’re going to focus on all-around cuisine and do more high-end gourmet appetizers.”

The menu will have 10 to 15 options, including some seasonal specials, and will be an eclectic mix of European-inspired and more classic fare.

The restaurant likely will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and a little later Thursday through Saturday. It also will have a liquor license.

No Regrets will be able to seat 125 people. An accordion door will open almost an entire side of the restaurant to a patio.

Ladenburger calls the look “elegant rustic.”

“We’re hoping to have some interior walls with some rock on them, some that have wood, some that have metal and just some comfortable seating areas. Elegant, classy but not overdone.”

The restaurant expects to need a staff of about 30 when it opens in late summer or early fall of 2018.

It’s part of the Three Fountains development, which includes an apartment complex and office building. No Regrets will take almost 4,000 square feet in a retail center on the south side of the property. The remaining 7,000 square feet, which includes space for a drive-thru, is listed with Craig Hagen and Gregg Brown of NAI Sioux Falls.

“We’re excited. What’s nice for us is with office prospects coming through we can say we have a restaurant. It helps validate the neighborhood,” Brown said. “It helps people who might feel like they’re pioneering coming south that there’s a place to go for a bite to eat or a glass of wine with co-workers. It helps check the box.”
