Why Barnes & Noble Is Getting Into Fine Dining
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.
