Back in August, Eater reported on the new Main Line Whole Foods store (which, by the way, opened earlier this month) and its built-in restaurant. We also teased the idea that the Rodin Square Whole Foods — the one soon to replace the existing location on Callowhill — might be joining the fleet of Whole Foods stores opening throughout the country with mini, local restaurants inside of them. Well, lookee here:

Whole Foods announced today that the Rodin Square location partnered up with some big-deal chefs in Philly and will open smaller, in-store versions of their intensely popular concepts. Shawn Darragh and Ben Puchowitz's ramen bar Cheu Noodle Bar, CookNSolo's hummusaya Dizengoff, Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby's vegan fast-food concept Wiz Kid (opening next to V Street this winter), plus Severino Cucina Rustica, a restaurant offshoot of South Jersey's famed Severino Pasta Company, will be joining two pubs, a mobile cocktail cart, and a coffee and juice bar, inside the 140-seat food hall, thus forever changing the meaning of "food shopping" in Philadelphia.

Whole Foods Rodin Square opens October 14.
