The Mall at Chestnut Hill announced Monday that it will welcome The Cheesecake Factory to join its mix of stores and restaurants at the end of the year, according to a press release.
“The addition of The Cheesecake Factory, continues our reputation as the premiere, high-end shopping destination in the area,” said Justin Feldhouse, mall manager at Mall at Chestnut Hill. “We offer a variety of unique restaurants for our shoppers and are sure they will enjoy their dining experiences at the mall.”
Known for its extensive menu and desserts, The Cheesecake Factory features more than 250 menu selections and more than 50 signature cheesecakes and desserts that were distinguished as America’s “best desserts” in Zagat's 2012 National Restaurant Chains Survey.
To accommodate the new restaurant, Mall at Chestnut Hill converted an already existing retail space, formerly occupied by Barney’s New York, into a restaurant space that will feature front patio seating, according to Feldhouse.
The Cheesecake Factory's decor will feature limestone floors and decorative columns, hand painted murals, contemporary lighting and an abundance of cherry wood, the release said.
“Mall at Chestnut Hill is a wonderful shopping destination and we look forward to joining its impressive roster of tenants and continuing to serve our loyal guests from the Chestnut Hill community,” said Alethea Rowe, senior director of public relations, The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated.
The current location of The Cheesecake Factory at the Atrium Mall, 300 Boylston St. in Chestnut Hill, is expected to close with the new opening at Mall at Chestnut Hill, 199 Boylston St.
“We currently believe we will be closing our Atrium Mall location in conjunction with our new opening at the Mall at Chestnut Hill,” said Alethea Rowe, senior director of Public Relations of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated, in a statement.
