Interesting. The rumours of 10 years ago are finally coming true.

Somewhat of an elitist way to say it but thanks anyway.

Admitted elitist when it comes to food. :eat:

We already have an Oliver Garden. It's just called East Side Mario's.

East Side Mario's is more of an Italian Montana's or Applebee's while Olive Garden is more of an Italian Red Lobster so they are slightly different.

It's humorous that this city is currently in the dumpster economically and yet people are still complaining about things that are actually being built here.

Implying chain restaurants are worse than non-chains: elitist.

Complaining that Saskatchewan's richest private company was given land in Wascana Park: political partisan.

Got it.

I prefer to support local establishments but I know families and my grandma will be happy about Olive Garden coming here.

Well, sounds like Revival Music Room on Dewdney is closing at the end of April. Never had the chance to make it out, but it seemed to receive decent reviews. Speaking as someone very involved with the music scene, it just isn't possible to make a venue centered around music anymore.

Olive Garden
 
Obviously they are going to be a bit tight lipped about it this time but based on the posting on their website, it would be indeed going to Grasslands:


Restaurant Number: 4348
Req. Number: 36753BR
Posted Date: 2/25/2019
Address: Gordon Road and Lewvan Drive
City, State: Regina, Saskatchewan
Postal Code: S4W 0-B7

Any idea whereabouts? I'm guessing somewhere West of the Brewhouse?

The Meating Room (moving from Dewdney or second location?) and Meltwich (4936 Gordon according to MW website) are coming to Grasslands according to the Grasslands website. I'd expect Meltwich will go into a strip mall location, maybe one of the vacant spots by Knight Archer. Olive Garden would like be a freestanding building so I'd think north of McDonalds.

how about Olive Garden just west of the Urban Barn where there are stakes in the ground already??

Recipe Unlimited seems to be the place holder tenant for the former Southland Mall Swiss Chalet. They operate the following:

East Side Mario's
Harvey's
Kelseys Original Roadhouse
Milestones Grill and Bar
Montana's BBQ & Bar
New York Fries
St-Hubert
Swiss Chalet
The Keg

So I wonder if one of those will be taking the spot instead.

Seems more likely they're the tenant from when the Swiss Chalet was operating, and they have not been able to break their lease, or that that information is old.

I like your idea better, but I don't think it likely one of those restaurants will be moving into the space.

The Southland Swiss Chalet was a franchise. There apparently was an issue between the franchise holders. From what I understand, there were two, and perhaps three, people who co-owned the franchise (if I am using the correct terminology). So for that reason (franchise) I would believe they were leasing the space from the mall owner (Strathallen). The Rochdale Swiss Chalet, and the adjacent Harvey's are corporate stores. There was mention some time ago that East Side Mario's was going to open a second location at Grasslands, which never happened. It would be nice if a family-style restaurant opened in the former SC building. But, as everyone knows, the economy sucks, and it is a tough go for many restaurants in our city right now.

Draftsman Mar 12, 2019 5:11 PM

Does anyone know anything about the former Keg/Hickory location on South Albert? It has been vacant for years. Has someone been paying the property taxes on this building or did they forfeit the property to the City? It's a shame that it was not incorporated into the rebuilt Co-Op gas bar and A&W.

Willow on Wascana is closing on March 30. Will be renovated and will reopen as Bar Willow, a "very casual" dining experience.

Same owners and chef, but cheaper, I guess. Weird name imo, as it will be a casual-dining place, not a bar.

Will it still be overrated and overpriced?

How does a private company get such prime real estate in the park? ;)

There was an RFP on the building around 2002-03 which they won. I had friends that had propsed putting in a nightclub.

Draftsman Mar 21, 2019 1:27 PM

Wasn't this building built in connection to Regina getting something like the Canada Summer Games, or a national rowing event? The building was built to store canoes (which the Regina Rowing Club still uses for that purpose) with a restaurant on top. It was not a high-end restaurant at first.
