East 40 Restaurant Under New Ownership
Long-time Bismarck restaurant East 40 Food & Drink is under new ownership. The vintage-themed restaurant was recently acquired by local businessman Dale Zimmerman, who has owned downtown’s Peacock Alley since 2010.
East 40 is an upscale restaurant and bar boasting a historic decor with numerous antiques, thereby sharing a common target customer base and similar historic atmosphere to its new sister restaurant, Peacock Alley.
East 40 was founded in 1975 by Ed and Joan Conlin, of Conlin’s Furniture. Caspar Borggreve, the restaurant’s longest and most prominent owner, owned the restaurant from 1979-2003, at which time it underwent a minor name change to become East 40 Chophouse and Tavern.
East 40 is located at 1401 E Interchange Ave, just off State Street and I-94.
The restaurant, now called “40 Steak + Seafood,” is undergoing major renovations that are expected to be completed in May.
