Richardson’s CityLine development is  in full construction mode, and so far will include an Aloft hotel; LOOK Cinemas; Whole Foods Market; Jaspers; CoalVines; 935 apartments; a wellness office building anchored by Texas Health Resources and Children’s Health; and a health and fitness facility adjacent to a 3.5-acre park with trails. By September 2015, CityLine is expected to have a daytime population of 10,000 people. At full build-out, the CityLine project will contain approximately six million square feet of office space, two hotels, 3,925 multi-family residential units, 300,000 square feet of grocery, restaurant, entertainment and retail space, and three parks

Developers KDC announced two new restaurants that plan on making CityLine their home. Look for both Edoko Sushi & Robata and Tom+Chee.


Tom+Chee was created to be the quintessential grilled cheese and tomato soup shop for the kid at heart. With its mix of classic comfort food and healthy alternatives, Tom+Chee is known for its fresh ingredients and quirky takes on comfort food classics. From the vegetarian Hippy+Chee to the offbeat Grilled Cheese Donut, Tom+Chee offers more than 20 grilled cheese sandwiches, plus fresh salads, three versions of tomato soup, and an endless array of specials. Yes, a grilled cheese donut.

“CityLine is the ideal location for us,” said Greg Sippel, franchisee of Tom+Chee. “I started out with Norman Brinker nearly 40 years ago in the restaurant business, and this concept is so exciting to me. When I saw it on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’ I knew it was something special and I had to be a part of it”. Look for Tom+Chee to open in May of 2015.

Edoko serves authentic Japanese food items like sashimi, nigiri and robata while also offering hot plates with western influences like sea scallops with yuzu gastrique and pumpkin puree, green tea chicken with herb oil and balsamic reduction, and udon noodles with sake-cream and pork belly. Robata has also become very popular with the restaurant’s clientele; eating delicious food on skewers without the need for utensils is a different and exciting way to enjoy Japanese cuisine.

This will be the second location for Edoko, the first is in Frisco. Edoko plans to open by Spring of 2016.
