Chains a-coming

Posted By on Wed, Jul 2, 2008 at 1:41 PM

Look for two new-to-town chain restaurants set to open later this summer at the Promenade at Chenal shopping center.

Yia Yia’s Euro Bistro
promises sophistication and whimsy in their press release, with a menu that features a combination of American, French, Italian and Greek cuisine (yia yia is Greek for “grandmother”). Several entree salads top out at $12, pizza and pasta are in the $10-$15 range. Entrees go up to $30 and include Chilean sea bass, rosemary lamb chops, roasted duck and rainbow trout.

From the creators of McAlister’s Deli comes Newk’s Express Cafe, a “fast-casual” restaurant that will feature California-style pizzas, salads, oven-baked sandwiches, soups and homemade cakes.

Both restaurants are scheduled to open in August. The Promenade is located on Chenal Parkway at Rahling Road. For updates, check the web site,
