Carolina Ale House, CO and YAMA are all opening new locations in the Waverly development in south Charlotte.
Carolina Ale House and CO are both leasing spaces adjacent to a public plaza called The Terrace, which features outdoor dining space, according to a statement this week from Crosland Southeast and Childress Klein, co-developers of the mixed-use project. YAMA, a sushi restaurant, signed a lease for a spot next to Viva Chicken.
The three restaurants are expected to open in late spring or early summer next year.
Waverly is the new 90-acre development on Providence Road just south of Interstate 485. It’s anchored by a Whole Foods, and also includes a Hilton Garden Inn, residences, medical offices and more than 30 other retailers including Ivy & Leo, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt and Chipotle.
Here are the details of the new restaurants opening in Waverly:
▪ Carolina Ale House is based in Raleigh and has more than 30 locations across the Southeast. The 6,500 square-foot Waverly spot will be the restaurant’s third area location: Carolina Ale House first opened in uptown Charlotte in 2011, and opened another in Concord in 2013.
▪ CO’s 3,180 square-foot Waverly restaurant will have a menu made up of pan-Asian cuisine like bahn mi, pho, sushi and signature cocktails. CO, which started in Charleston, opened its first Charlotte location in the Park Road Shopping Center in late 2015.
▪ YAMA’s 3,400 square-foot Waverly location will be the restaurant’s third in the Charlotte area: Yama Asian Fusion opened in SouthPark in 2007, and Yama Izakaya opened in Plaza Midwood in 2014. Its menu includes Japanese dishes like sushi, sashimi and hibachi entrees.
