The largest entertainment and retail destination in North America will welcome several new restaurants, stores, and services in the new year
Mall of America is adding to its repertoire of retail and entertainment venues next year. In 2020, the 5.6-million-square-foot complex will see the addition of new eateries, shops, and consumer services, providing even more for groups to look forward to on their visit.
New Restaurants at Mall of America
Arguably one of the most exciting restaurants opening at Mall of America, Chicken Guy! is the fast/casual concept from celebrity chef, Guy Fieri. Along with co-founder Robert Earl, Fieri opened the fist location at Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort in 2018. The Mall of America spot will be the fifth Chicken Guy! location in the country. The eatery is known for its all-natural chicken tenders, which are hand-pounded and brined in lemon juice, pickle juice and buttermilk, and infused with fresh herbs. Guests can dip these tenders in or top their chicken sandwich with their choice of 22 signature sauces. The meal is made complete with tempting sides like Mac Daddy Mac ‘n Cheese, fried pickles, or fresh coleslaw. As groups wait to dig into the lip-smacking chicken, they can snap a photo with Guy Fieri at the selfie wall.
Founded in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Duck Donuts excels when it comes to baking warm, delicious, made-to-order donuts. Visitors begin the sweet journey with a simple vanilla cake donut.
From there, they can customize it with their choice of coatings, toppings, and drizzles. They can select something traditional like chocolate with sprinkles, or opt for something a little more out there like maple icing with bacon bits.
