In the caption of an Instagram video, Yeh and Hagen, accompanied by the restaurant’s namesake, stood together in the space housing their new venture.

“Surprise, we’re opening a restaurant!!!!!! Last year we took over a beautiful historic space on the banks of the red river, where we plan to celebrate the cuisine of east grand forks,” Yeh wrote.

“Midwest traditions, Scandinavian flavors, local ingredients, and really good bread will come together under one roof for a magical delicious cozy wonderland called Bernie’s opening fall 2022,” the Food Network star continued.

“We are so excited to welcome you in and feed you!” Yeh added her excitement at planning the menu, hiring staff, honoring the “ghosts” of the historic space, and creating new stories of our own.

Molly Yeh restaurant confirmed by East Grand Forks Mayor

East Grand Forks Mayor Steve Gander confirmed in April, per the Grand Forks Herald, that Yeh and Hagen would be new business owners.

The couple is opening the restaurant in the historic Whitey’s Underground building in East Grand Forks.

Before the coronavirus shutdown, the building housed an eatery called Sickie’s Garage Burgers & Brews, which occupied the space until it closed in August 2021.

Gander spoke of the new business at the State of the City Address & Luncheon.

“We’ve gotten confirmation through Molly Yeh and Nick Hagen,” Gander said. “They’ve been married since 2014 and living on Nick’s family farm. Many of you probably watch her syndicated show on the Food Network every week. They’re going to open a restaurant in this location in the fall of 2022, so they are actively involved with their contractor clearing out the space and preparing it for what they’re going to put in there.”

Gander said he was unsure of the dishes that Bernie’s would serve. However, he claimed of the food, “I know it will be tasty.”

Girl Meets Farm airs Sundays on the Food Network at 11 a.m. EST.
