The Midwest is known for local amazing spots, and that shows with all the great local spots. In fact, a city in Iowa now has more local restaurants than chains. This would be an awesome trend to see in more spots like the QC! The Quad Cities will be saying hello to some awesome news spots this Spring too.

Here are a few new restaurants to check out in the Quad Cities

Other New or Soon To Open Restaurants To Check Out


La Herradura Mexican Grill

This restaurant had a location open in LeClaire and decided to expand late in 2021 to Silvis. “Herradura” translates to horseshoe in English so giddy up and load up on their authentic Mexican cuisine!

Yoso Modern Japanese Steakhouse

I’ve personally never tried Japanese food but I will definitely be stopping here when they open! Catch Yoso Modern Japanese Steakhouse in downtown Bettendorf. This restaurant will feature an open flame grill in the middle of the room that uses Japanese white oak charcoal which is odorless and smokeless! Sushi and other dishes will be available as well as a full bar with a variety of sake to choose from. I’m not a huge fan of sushi but I can definitely get behind the steake.

Olde Town Bakery

Known for its delicious sugar cookies since 1951, this locally owned hole in the wall is set to expand and open its first express location in East Moline. Currently owned by Andy and Chris VanHoe since 2007, this location does all sorts of desserts from custom cakes and cookies to delicious fruit pies. Their new building is still undergoing construction but the brand new signature pink sign can be seen in the storefront.

Check out these awesome restaurants, and don't forget to support local here in the Quad Cities!
