Anchor Bar opening next week at Stony Point Fashion Park
Anchor Bar, a restaurant known for its chicken wings, is opening its first U.S. location outside of New York state on Feb. 18 at Stony Point Fashion Park in Richmond.
The new location is a franchise owned by David Allred. It occupies 8,500 square feet of space and seats up to 275. In addition, it has a 60-person patio that will open this spring. The restaurant is located between Saks Fifth Avenue and Dick’s Sporting Goods, in the space that was formerly occupied by Champps Americana.
Anchor Bar is the first new permanent tenant to open at Stony Point Fashion Park since the shopping center, owned by Starwood Retail Partners, announced a $50 million redevelopment.
The original Anchor Bar, located in downtown Buffalo, N.Y., first opened its doors in 1935. The Richmond location will serve Anchor Bar’s chicken wings plus new menu items, such as sandwiches, pizza and desserts.
Anchor Bar has filled about half of its staff positions but is looking to hire approximately 70 more people for the new restaurant. Job seekers can apply by visiting my.peoplematter.com/mja/anchorbar/jobapp/GetStarted.
