UPDATE FEB 2019: Since the date of this post in February 2013 (six years ago), Gandolfo’s New York Deli, Famous Dave’s BBQ and Toby Keith’s have opened and subsequently closed.
In spring 2013, Gandolfo's New York Deli, Gen Korean BBQ and Famous Dave's BBQ (UPDATE: Famous Dave's planning to open in the Fall now) are planning to open. Gandolfo's is indicating a grand opening date of March 28th. Additionally, a new Starbucks (hey they have food so you could consider that an eatery, right :).
More recently The Collection announced that that Yard House (July 2013), Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana (Fall 2013) and Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill (Fall 2013) will open later in 2013.
Yard House offers American fusion cuisine featuring appetizers, salads, pastas, sandwiches, street tacos, grilled burgers, individual-size pizzas, seafood, steaks and ribs. Yard House is also known for its wide selection of imported, craft and specialty ales and lagers—more than 100 different types on tap.
Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana will open its fifth location at The Collection. Settebello’s Pizzeria specializes in wood-fired Napoletana-style pizza, which is a softer crust pizza that cooks very quickly at high temperatures. Whenever possible, the ingredients are imported from the Napoli region of Italy, and when importing is not a possibility, they find the highest quality comparable American products.
Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill will bring its unique country vibe to the center, along with a guitar-shaped bar and “live music, whiskey girls, and beer in mason jars.” Toby Keith’s also offers a family friendly lunch and dinner menu, so feel free to bring the kids. Toby Keith’s also brings in live country-western bands, live-band karaoke and free line dancing lessons.
Also planning a spring 2013 opening are Whole Foods and REI. For more information, visit thecollectionrp.com.
