The Dunkirk, NY Observer reports that "native Ed Mikula and partners recently signed a lease for a 9,000 square foot, two-story French restaurant and Cabaret" to be called ALLO! MON COCO. The name loosely translates into "Hello! My Sweetie."
The $7 million restaurant is "expected to open by late spring" and will offer French food "with a twist." The 260-seat eatery will be found upstairs in the venue while a "full" cabaret bar will be located downstairs. Mikula and partners are hoping to bring five more restaurants to Vegas over the next five years, according to the article.
Here's a recap of what else is on the way for The Linq:
●Bella Scarpa: a shoe store chain
●KOTO: a "lifestyle trend" chain for "unique gifts"
●Ruby Blue: women's accessories already found at Mandalay Bay
●Chilli Beans: a "Brazilian eyewear and watch brand, founded by rock 'n' roller turned entrepreneur Caito Maia"
●Goorin Bros.: a hat shop (not so much baseball as bowler)
●12A.M. Run: Nas' sneaker shop
●Polaroid Fotobar: a two-level, first of its kind "retail store and museum"
●Vanity Style Lounge: a salon for hair styling, nail and makeup services
●Chayo Mexicano: "upscale casual" mexican cuisine with indoor-outdoor seating
●Flour & Barley: pizzeria (its sister restos, The Barrymore, Public House and Holsteins, are hot spots so we have high hopes here)
●Off the Strip: an Italian bistro (second Vegas outpost)
●Sprinkles: cupcakes and ice cream chain
●F.A.M.E.: food, art, music and entertainment "combined to recreate a culinary bazaar"
●Tilted Kilt: a breastaurant chain (see here) with a Celtic theme (read: hot girls in kilts)
●Yard House: restaurant chain that will feature two-level outdoor patio and beer garden
●The Stomping Grape: "a casual approach to lighter and healthier comfort food and drinks"
●Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop: 'nuff said, making its Strip return after closing due to Quad renovations
●Haute Doggery: hot dog versions of menu favorites from sister eatery, Holsteins
●Brooklyn Bowl: a bowling alley (32 lanes) slash performance space slash nightclub by way of NYC
While unannounced, a 2012 quarterly report detailed these additional outlets, too. It's unknown if they're still on board:
●Tequila Ranch: Since The Linq already has a Mexican resto in the works, we're going to assume that this is the Tequila Ranch by way of Cleveland which bills itself as a cowboy themed bar
●Coke: Could the Coca-Cola store be jumping ship from its current location next to M&Ms World? Or, will this be a second location for The Strip?
●Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Yeah, you read that right. We did a double take, too. The RJ confirmed this, though, stating the museum will offer a restaurant, too.
