Michael Klein reported earlier today that WIN Signature Restaurants, who just opened Azie on Main upstairs and Parker’s Prime Steakhouse in Newtown Square (to go along with several other restaurants they already own), will also be renting out the lower part of Maia. The concept will be American-style comfort food/bar aimed at a younger crowd: wings, pizzas, burgers, ribs, etc.
It continues to amaze us that while everyone else is scaling back during this economy, WIN keeps expanding. How can they ensure high quality across all the brands? Didn’t a successful local restaurant team already try the multi-tiered restaurant in the Maia space and fail? How will WIN fare with a non-Asian theme?
You’ll have to wait until at least Spring 2010 to find out — though we always like to pad at least one more season on the projected times.
