Coming to East Edmond: New Eats & Experiences

Something new is underway at I-35 Frontage Road, just south of 2nd Street — and no — it’s not another hospital. The three-story, multi-use facility will house Regent Bank and Enhanced dental, along with Hatch Early Mood Food, Chicken Foot, and Sidecar Barley and Wine Bar, complete with a rooftop feature. Set to open in late 2022, visitors are invited to experience what’s being called an “upscale, urban oasis.”

The new experiences Edmondites can expect from The Regent Center at Fox Lake North are years in the making — the collaborative product of careful planning, countless meetings, and cutting-edge design. Led by Tapp Development and Ashton Gray, the $20 million, 40 thousand square foot development is one of the single largest retail investments in the city.

“This project had an almost six-year approval process,” said Jim Tapp, Tapp Development President, “Since the land is located in a floodplain, it required extensive flood studies and support from the City of Edmond, its Stormwater Advisory Board, and the homeowners of Fox Lake to ensure we followed the procedures and protected the preferences of all involved.”

Though plans for additional hotels and hospitality were discussed for the area, Tapp says his team, local residents, and city leaders are ultimately pleased with the product of what they call a “group effort”. With an eye-catching design that will be visible from I-35, Tapp predicts The Regent Center will become a showpiece for the Edmond corridor.

As the real-estate and development side of this project fell into place, its success was still largely dependent upon support from the homeowners of Fox Lake. Careful to curate their neighborhood and surroundings, the Fox Lake HOA has been an integral part of decision-making in the rapidly developing area.

Edmond residents can thank these collaborative efforts as they enjoy an expanded culinary catalog, closer to home. Together, the three restaurants will offer robust options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks, offering service a combined 20 hours of the day.

“Not only are we excited to bring three wildly different restaurant concepts to The Regent Center,” said James Takahata, Provisions Concepts area director, “but we will be headquartered there as well.”

For those looking to plan ahead for business meetings, brunch dates, or date nights, here’s what to expect:

  • Hatch Early Mood Food
    A popular pick for brunch-lovers, this scratch-style menu offers traditional breakfast favorites with modern twists, along with coffee, cocktails – and “Coffee Cocktails” – in an upscale, urban environment.
  • Chicken Foot
    Open for lunch and dinner, Chicken Foot’s catchphrase says it all: buns, bones, and beer. Get comfortable in their casual atmosphere, offering options for all tastes and spice tolerances. Diners can choose from counter service or a full-service bar.
  • Sidecar Barley and Wine Bar
    Take in rooftop views of Edmond as you sip Sidecar’s signature selection of craft cocktails, with by-the-bottle options unique to each location. Expect live music on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from early spring to the late fall.

While fresh ingredients and quality cuisine are standard for Provision Concepts’ restaurants, Takahata says Provision Concepts prioritizes the overall guest experience, aiming to provide excellent service in a high-energy environment.
