MidCity has added three new restaurants to be part of the $350 million mixed-use development in Huntsville.
Celebrity-driven dining concepts Wahlburgers and Rascal Flatts are two first-to-market restaurants, while Alchemy Lounge will open its second Huntsville location at The Camp, MidCity’s outdoor leisure destination.
A 4,000-square-foot Wahlburgers, a chef-inspired full-service restaurant with dining, full-service bar and takeout, will command a corner space at the front door of MidCity. Wahlburgers is owned by reality TV and movie star brothers, Mark, Donnie and Chef Paul Wahlberg.
Construction is scheduled to begin later this year with a 2019 opening. This will be the chain’s first location in Huntsville and only the second in Alabama.
The 7,500 square-foot Rascal Flatts, named for and endorsed by the Grammy-winning country music band, is currently under design. It promises a Southern-inspired menu, live nationally-recognized entertainment with sound stage, a bar and retail space.
Rascal Flatts will be located across the bridge from Topgolf, adjacent to the kayak pond at the corner of Nunnahsae Park Drive and Stax Street. It will be the brand’s first location in the Southeast, slated to open in next summer.
Construction has begun for Alchemy at The Camp, a coffee lounge with coffee and craft beer, and other specialty beverages and treats. The coffee house uses regionally grown produce in its menu items.
“This is an exciting time for MidCity and the entire Tennessee Valley,” Max Grelier, cofounder of RCP Companies said in a statement. “We have reached a heightened level of anticipation for this dynamic community with these two celebrity-driven dining concepts and the already committed active lifestyle and entertainment retailers.”
Earlier this year, RCP Companies, which is also the developer of CityCentre, announced a partnership with Georgia-based Southern Fried Hospitality – and award-winning chef Marc Taft, an Alabama native – to provide hospitality management and restaurant development for the two mixed-used projects.
