The book store giant is adding more high-end food options to some of its locations, hoping to pair book shopping with dining out

Book store Barnes & Noble is best known for being a place to peruse the shelves for a good read and perhaps to grab a cup of Starbucks coffee. However, some franchise locations are opening up their culinary offerings to more refined selections.

Barnes & Noble Kitchen is now open in three locations: Eastchester, New York, and Edina, Minnesota, and Folsom, California. Created in partnership with Chef Sheamus Feeley, the fine dining menu includes food items such as a brisket burger, chopped salad, and salmon, all ranging from $15-$30. The kitchen also offers a number of wines (by glass or bottle) as well as a small beer selection.

$15 provides access to this article and every case-study, interview, and analysis piece that we publish for the next 30 days. Our Premium Subscription also provides access to a database of over 100,000 articles on innovation in brand, customer, and retail experience.
