The long-awaited expansion project at King of Prussia Mall has finally opened, connecting The Court and The Plaza and creating a new 155,000-square-foot space that offers 50 new and contemporary dining and retail options. A ribbon joining ceremony (instead of the traditional ribbon cutting) was held Thursday, Aug. 18, to symbolize the now unified mall.
The dining area in the new expansion, Savor King of Prussia, is destination dining at its finest. To complement the new dining experience, the space also offers soft seating lounges, device charging stations and elegant, multi-tiered fountains. Visitors can find a hotel-style concierge center and a valet service that is digital-friendly. The overall space has been carefully curated to provide an exceptional dining and social experience in a stunning new environment.
Kathy Smith, Director of Marketing and Business Development at King of Prussia Mall said, “The Savor King of Prussia concept will take our food offerings to the next level. It will give everyone who visits our property delicious and diverse dining options, enhancing the total shopping experience.”
Currently open or opening soon at Savor King of Prussia are the following establishments:
Hai Street Kitchen & Co
With current locations in University City and Center City, Hai Street is a casual Japanese eatery known for inventive sushi burritos, bowls and specialty sauces, made in-house daily with fresh, all-natural ingredients.
This is the third outpost of the New York-based Italian eatery specializing in homemade pizzas, pastas and gelatos from Michelin-starred chef Michael White.
Dig into comfort food from this New York City staple, including classic grilled cheese as well as upscale versions of cheesy sandwiches like the truffle melt and fried chicken melt. Melt Shop’s menu also features salads, milkshakes, and sides like tater tots and cabbage slaw.
Shake Shack already has a location outside the mall, but they’ve made it easier to grab a favorite burger, shake or signature concrete while shopping.
The Fat Ham
Top Chef winner Kevin Sbraga brings a second outpost of his pork-centric Philly restaurant to Savor. The menu draws inspiration from Southern country cooking, and the bar list features seasonal specialty cocktails and a selection of over 120 bourbons and whiskeys. The menu offerings will be lighter than those at the original location, but will still include Sbraga’s signature hot chicken dish.
Healthy options abound at Sweetgreen. The D.C.-based chain prides itself on sourcing local and organic ingredients to create its menu of light bites like the seasonal watermelon and feta salad and signature salad and grain bowls. This is the fifth Sweetgreen to open in the greater Philadelphia area, including one in Ardmore.
Restaurants will be open during regular mall hours: 10 a.m.–9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. on Sunday.
