As Coddingtown Mall in Santa Rosa continues its reinvention, three significant restaurants are slated to open this spring and summer. They will join the already-opened Chipotle, Whole Foods & Taproom, BJ’s Brewery, Quizno’s, Subway, Baskin Robbins and Starbucks.
The first to open will be Sea Noodle Grill, from the owners of Sea Thai Bistro (Santa Rosa, Petaluma). The restaurant is slated for an April opening in the former Fresh China location after an interior overhaul.
Jack’s Urban Eats, a Sacramento-based fast-casual chain is slated for May. The popular salad, sandwich and “carved meats” restaurant has nine other locations mostly in the Sacramento/Davis/Roseville area. Menu items include Chinese chicken salad, Thai prawn salad; hearty steak, turkey and barbecue sandwiches (yes, there’s a veggie); kid-friendly chicken strips, fries; carved meats (tri-tip, roasted turkey); and homey sides of mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, veggies, soup and baked cheese bread.
Finally, Coddingtown Grill will also be opening this year (likely late summer). Details are still vague on the concept, but the restaurant owner is currently developing a similar grill concept at Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton (also a Simon Mall) that will open this spring. The Coddingtown Grill space will likely be near the front of the mall near Starbucks, said mall reps.
One other Coddingtown spring opening will be Jamba Juice, bringing the number of eateries at the mall to eleven.
