The area around the Mall of Georgia has a plethora of restaurants, yet we are always looking for something different, or something new. Well, three new restaurants are opening this year.

First, La Madeliene opens March 31st, in the old TGIF location. According to their Facebook page, they are a quaint French café serving rustic country fare, espresso and fresh-baked baguettes. They will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  They also cater.


Second, Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill is expected to open in July. It will be located in the village area of the mall, in the old Coldwater Creek location. The restaurant is known for its signature Smoked Wings, Fall off the Bone Baby Back Ribs, Pulled Pork and Build Your Own Burgers with over 35 toppings. Smokey Bones is one of my favorite places for ribs.


Finally Red Robin is coming to the mall. This great burger joint will be located in the old Ruby Tuesday location, just inside the main mall entrance.  With gourmet burgers and unlimited fries, Red Robin is “Yummmmm!”

As many of us know, the new Hooter's just opened near Dillard's as well.  Maybe one of these new restaurants will become your fave and let us know what you want to see open at the Mall of Georgia.
