Restaurant in historic Coney Island spot, Martha's Daughter, to open Valentine's Day

Posted: Updated:
DULUTH, MN -

The new owner of the historic Coney Island spot off Superior St. in downtown Duluth is planning a soft opening for Valentine's Day. 

The spot has been completely remodeled, and the owner is making an effort to give women equal opportunities in what she says is a male-dominated industry. 

"In the past years, the empowerment of women has become much more prevalent. It has become very important, especially in the last year, for me to support females and empower women, and having the restaurant is a platform that helps me do that. In the male-dominated culinary world, there's still a lot of room for females to be included in the discussion," owner of Martha's Daughter, Nyanyika Banda, said. 

Banda hired all-females in the making of the restaurant's website, which is now up and running.

She also says that she makes an effort for her venue's purchases to be as equal as possible when it comes to male and female vendors, such as wine, local farmers, etc...

Banda's food will be what she calls new American - combining global flavors and sourcing locally whenever possible. 

They will only be serving organic meats. They will also serve beer, wine and cocktails.
