A Phoenix-based restaurant group will be constructing a new restaurant just outside the King of Prussia Mall for one of its health-based restaurant concepts.
True Food Kitchen, a health-conscious restaurant concept by Phoenix-based Fox Restaurant Concepts, will be coming to the King of Prussia Mall in a yet-to-be-constructed 7,000-square-foot restaurant on the north side of the retail center near the existing Shake Shack.
The restaurant will be located on the right side of where Shake Shack is if you’re facing Mall Boulevard with your back toward the mall. It will be close to the entrance/exit.
Construction has not started yet, but the restaurant has a slated opening of summer 2017.
“As the True Food brand continues to grow throughout the U.S., we’re excited to introduce this restaurant to cities like King of Prussia so people can experience for themselves just how flavorful healthy food can be,” said Sam Fox, founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts.
The company focuses on health and wellness, with a menu featuring a number of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. The restaurant is inspired by the principles of physician and author Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet.
” At True Food Kitchen, we want you to feel better, live longer and make your mouth happy in the process,” the concept says on its website . ” It’s honest food that tastes really good.”
The menus include dishes like pizza, quinoa and turkey burgers, salads, and entrees like sustainable seabass, turkey lasagna and spaghetti squad casserole.
True Food Kitchen has locations across the country, including Atlanta, Houston and Austin, Texas, and San Diego, California. Locations in Chicago and Nashville, Tennessee, and more, are also planned.
King of Prussia’s dining seen has been booming recently, with upcoming additions to the King of Prussia Mall, including The Fat Ham by Chef Kevin Sbraga , Hai Street Kitchen & Co., Shake Shack, New York’s Nicoletta Pizzeria and Melt Shop, all in the mall’s 155,000-square-foot expansion project that connects the Court with the Plaza.
The nearby King of Prussia Town Center has also been curating its own list of notable restaurants — eight so far — including honeygrow , Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, and Washington, D.C.-based Founding Farmers.
