The Mall of America is lifting the lid on some of the new dining options that either recently opened or will soon be opening.

Of the nine food and drink spots, three have previously been revealed in some form — Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls, Duck Donuts and the Capital One Café (yes, the bank). The remaining six have not been widely announced before.

Here's a look at the what's open, and what's to come.
