Palm Beach Gardens, Florida (WiredPRNews.com) – The first Gander Mountain Tall Tales restaurant in the U.S. is now open in the new store at Northlake Boulevard and I-95. Plans are for this to be the prototype for future restaurants inside other Gander Mountain stores nationwide. A seminar and meeting room is available for groups, and will feature monthly sports celebrities, outdoor experts, and others.
Tall Tales will be operated and managed by Randy Epstein, local businessman and caterer and Doug Brown, president of Continental Catering. “It was such a great opportunity to do something different that has the potential to grow nationwide, we jumped right in,” said Epstein.
Gander Mountain General Manager Greg Park says, “We think the partnership will be a profitable and successful one and wanted to begin here in South Florida with the idea for an in store restaurant.” With more than 100 stores in twenty states in the U.S, Gander Mountain is fast becoming a “destination” rather than just a sporting goods store, according to Mark Baker, CEO.
Featuring beam wood ceilings and ski-lodge atmosphere, the menu will focus on real food made from scratch on-site. Family dining will feature favorites like wood fired pizza, rotisserie chicken, soups, salads, and gourmet specialties such as seared ahi tuna, local fresh seared fish daily, flatbreads, and specialty burgers, and a wine and beer bar. A wine bar with oxygenated taps for keeping opened wine bottles fresh and wine by the glass, with many different beers are a unique feature.
Opening to the general public on Wednesday May 15th, hours are from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday –Thursday, Friday – Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Please call for information, 561-627-5642. Visit www.gandermountain.com.
