BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - One of the Mall of America's first restaurants is shuttering its doors next year.
Tucci Benucch, the Italian restaurant that was located on the first floor of the mega mall for more than 25 years, will close on Feb. 4, 2018.
In addition to the restaurant's closure, its next door neighbor, the Magic Pan Crepe Stand will close as well. Both are part of the Lettuce Entertain You brand.
The Mall of America released a statement on Wednesday saying, in part, "We are sad to see them go and thank all our guests who supported them throughout the years. With change always comes opportunity and we look forward to exciting announcements for those spaces in 2018. Mall of America continues to curate a unique and unparalleled retail, dining and attraction mix and welcomed more than 30 new tenants in 2017."
