Maggie McFly’s to add Westfarms mall restaurant

Maggie McFly’s restaurant and bar says it plans to open its ninth location in Farmington’s Westfarms mall.

The Connecticut-based restaurant group, led by founder-owner Ray Harper, says the 10,000-square-foot venue will become its sixth location in the state when it debuts sometime this fall. The Westfarms restaurant will employ about 150 people, a spokeswoman said Thursday.

Maggie McFly’s opened its first restaurant/bar in Middlebury in 1993, and has since added locations in Glastonbury, Manchester, Southbury, Brookfield and others in New York and Virginia.

The new Westfarms mall restaurant is slated to feature the group’s typical 180-item, 24-page menu of food and beverage options, officials say. Its floor plan will also mirror Maggie McFly’s other restaurants designed by Boston architectural firm Sousa Design, Harper said.

“I believe that we fit into a niche the restaurant-goers” in the area “will truly appreciate,” he said. “Unlike national chains we can purchase from and cultivate relationships with smaller, local purveyors that are always striving to provide the best ingredients.”

The restaurant announcement surfaces as real estate investment firm Taubman Centers, the owner of Westfarms mall and 25 other shopping centers in the U.S. and Asia, has agreed to sell the portfolio to the nation's largest owner of U.S. malls for $3.6 billion.
