A 2nd Block & Grinder on the way

Owner Jed Kampe says he's signed a lease for a second location of Block & Grinder, this at the LangTree development off Exit 31 of I-77, at Lake Norman, and is aiming at a late spring 2015 opening. Also on, or coming to, the property: an amphitheater on the lake, a 12-story hotel, a healthcare facility, apartments and condos, he says.

His new spot will be bigger "but won't be crazy in terms of seating" and will have a clearer division of restaurant and retail for its butcher shop and wine offerings, plus private dining and patio space both covered and uncovered, Kampe says. The current place is at 2935 Providence Road.
