Officials are “in talks” to bring two popular restaurants—Dave & Busters and The Cheesecake Factory—to Hamilton Place Mall.

“This would be the first phase of the Sears redevelopment and will be excited to share additional information as soon as plans are finalized,” a CBL spokeswoman said via email.

CBL owns and manages both Hamilton Place and Northgate malls.

Dave & Busters is an adult arcade, sports bar and restaurant.

The Cheesecake Factory is a restaurant that features more than 250 menu items and more than 50 signature cheesecakes.

Local residents had mixed reactions, such as indifference and excitement, to the possibility of the two new restaurants.
