A second Shake Shack was reason enough to be excited about the King of Prussia Mall expansion. Joining them will be additional East Coast dining brands, slated to open as part of a 155,000-square-foot expansion project.
Hai Street Kitchen & Co, with current locations in University City and Center City, is a casual Japanese eatery known for its inventive sushi burritos, bowls and specialty sauces, made in-house daily with fresh, all-natural ingredients.
New to Pennsylvania is Nicoletta Pizzeria, a New York-based Italian eatery specializing in homemade pizzas, pastas and gelatos from Michelin-starred chef Michael White, and Melt Shop, a Manhattan transplant that boasts artisanal comfort food, from gourmet grilled cheese to specialty shakes.
“The demand—particularly by our Millennial customers—for more dining and entertainment-driven amenities at King of Prussia Mall has increased in recent years. Our goal is to deliver, and with this latest lineup, we’re offering some of the freshest concepts that are new to the market,” says Kathy Smith, director of marketing and business development. “We’re anticipating many happy mall-goers, knowing that these additions represent some of the greatest up-and-coming concepts from Philadelphia and New York.”
“The King of Prussia Mall attracts thousands of shoppers from all around the world. As such a young brand, we are excited to bring the Hai Street Kitchen sushi burrito to hungry and adventurous shoppers at this iconic location,” says Patrick Hughes, retail group manager at Hai Street Kitchen & Co.
Anticipated opening in August, the new 155,000-square-foot connector will offer 50 new and contemporary dining and retail concepts in addition to modern features such as common area dining counters with integrated, multi-tiered fountains, floor-to-ceiling windows, device-charging stations, a concierge-level guest service center, valet services, a state-of-the-art parking garage and more.
