A large eatery in the King of Prussia Mall will permanently close early next year, the Philadelphia Business Journal is reporting.

The Grand Lux Cafe -- an eatery operated by the Cheesecake Factory Inc. -- had been open inside the mall for more than six years, they report. It apparently will close on January 31.

The Grand Lux Cafe in the Cherry Hill mall in Cherry Hill, NJ closed during the pandemic as well.

The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated operates 220 full-service restaurants across the country. Those restaurants include 206 Cheesecake Factory restaurants and approximately 13 Grand Lux Cafes.

A Cheesecake Factory is currently open inside the Kind of Prussia Mall, and from our experience, it's quite busy there. We have no information regarding a possible closing of that eatery.

The Grand Lux Cafe was initially designed as an upscale restaurant for The Venetian hotel and casino in Las Vegas. Grand Lux Cafes are open in Florida, Georgia, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, and Texas.

The King of Prussia location was the chain's only eatery open in the state of Pennsylvania, according to their website. A Grand Lux Cafe appears to remain open in the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, NJ, according to the chain's website.

The King of Prussia Mall, which is owned and operated by Simon Properties, is the largest retail shopping space in the United States. Throughout the pandemic retailers inside the mall had struggled a bit — including Lord & Taylor, which closed on February 27, 2021. 

Eateries that currently remain open on the mall's property include Bonefish Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings, Maggianos, California Pizza Kitchen, and more.
