Sbraga Dining is making big moves in 2016. After opening a restaurant in Jacksonville, FL last year, Sbraga & Co., the team is looking towards the Philadelphia suburbs for its next venture. Later this summer, The Fat Ham, Sbraga's University City southern-inspired restaurant, will open in the King of Prussia Mall, bringing hot chicken to the Main Line for the very first time.

It's all part of a 155,000-square-foot build out planned to connect the KOP Court to the Plaza. Over 50 new restaurants and retailers are slotted to join the mall expansion, which includes a common dining area, fountains, floor-to-ceiling windows and a new parking garage to make the experience more accessible. Expect the KOP's Fat Ham to have a similar vibe to its University City sister, but with an architectural design inspired by old-timey southern hospitality. Eimer Design chose a country road filling-station-meets-quaint-barn motif.

But Sbraga isn't stopping in King of Prussia. Starting May 1 at Spruce Street Harbor Park, look for The Little Fat Ham booth, serving up (of course) hot chicken, hot fish sandwiches, pulled pork, beef brisket, and other southern comfort bites. More of a homebody? Find him on Season 7 (airing June 1) of MasterChef as a guest chef.
