Walden Galleria has lost two food court tenants.
Salsarita's Fresh Mexican Grill, a quick-serve burrito chain, has ended its lease and moved out of the Cheektowaga mall. It has remaining locations on Union Road in Cheektowaga, on Transit Road in Clarence, on Chippewa Street and in the student union at SUNY Buffalo State.
With its seasonal lease up, Mumbles Chicken and Waffles has also left the mall. The food court restaurant served culinary variations on the soul food made famous in Baltimore, Md.
"The plan was always to get our own space and not stay in the mall," said Jemarr Moody, owner. "The malls are not what they use to be."
The restaurant will relocate to 3118 Main St. in the University Heights district. It is being renovated now and is targeting a March opening.
There is a yet-to-be-named tenant lined up for the former Mumbles spot, according to the mall.
