Nuget restore fails (Arm Mac)

This is a long shot, but does anyone else have access to Apple's ARM Mac DTK? I'm trying to build my Xamarin project in VS for Mac, but nuget restore fails:

error MSB4057: The target "GenerateRestoreGraphFile" does not exist in the project

Happy to hear any suggestions - even if you don't have access to the Mac in question.

    Visual Studio 2019 for Mac version 8.8 Preview Release
    Yay! Visual Studio for Mac 8.8 Preview 1 or newer now support running on the macOS Big Sur developer preview.
    Boo! Xamarin developers on macOS Big Sur will not be able to compile and run their projects at this time.

    Looks like my NuGet restore failure has gone away with the latest VS 8.8 Preview - I get a build but can't run in the iOS Simulator and the Android Emulator is far too slow without HAXM.
