 Jordan Creek Town Center Will Be Home Of Both Union 29 and Pregame Restaurants

Jordan Creek Town Center is bringing a Midwestern cuisine to the area with the help of Union 29.

According to Riley Drive Entertainment Corporate Chef Bradly Gilmore, the restaurant will serve up locally-sourced Iowa beef and pork with tasty Midwestern cuisine. He said the restaurant will be in the old Champps 10,500-square foot building.

Union 29’s name was inspired by the state’s number of joining the union (Iowa was the 29th state).

Riley Drive Entertainment owner Marc Mundt said Union 29 is going to be a great location and in a gorgeous building. He also said the restaurant is nothing like Champps.

Union 29 menu will feature Iowa pork with dishes such as tenderloin strips, house sausage, crispy pork wings, and pork macaroni and cheese. The menu will also include various flatbreads, pastas, unique dishes and steaks. The dessert menu is inspired by the Iowa State Fair, which will include a scotcheroo sandwich and nutty bar.

Gilmore said the goal is to honor Iowa.

The restaurant’s bar will also have 29 tap handles all dedicated to the breweries in Iowa. There will also be 29 wine varieties, bottled beers and cocktails.

Gilmore said patrons can get a Bud Light, double old-fashioned with bacon and cherries or an Iowa craft beer.

Mundt is also bringing Pregame right next to Union 29. Pregame will offer sodas mixed with energy drinks, espressos and sundaes and shakes with bacon. A doughnut robot will make fresh donuts topped with customers’ choices of ice cream, different candies, bacon bits, cereal and crunch berries.

Gilmore said Pregame is edgy and hip where customers can sit at the bar with their crazy tea and sodas.
