When Nebraska Furniture Mart opened in 2015, it signaled the start of something big in The Colony. In the five years since, Grandscape, the $1.5 billion mixed-use development backed by billionaire Warren Buffett, has grown considerably. With more than 20 restaurants onsite, plus entertainment options including Andretti Indoor Karting & Games and newly open Electric Gamebox, there is something for everyone at Grandscape.
“One of our main goals throughout this whole project, is to really cover the gamut,” said Katie Wedekind, brand and public relations manager for Grandscape. “It was really important for us to have a unique, diverse offering for our guests.”
Here’s a closer look at Grandscape’s restaurant scene.
