UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) The Mohegan Indian tribe is attempting to start its own restaurant franchise.

The tribe plans to put the first of its American Indian-themed grills at its Mohegan Sun Casino.

Designed to look like a forest clearing, the 15,000-square-foot Uncas American Indian Grill is scheduled to open in July.

Its menu will include cuisine ''indigenous to the Mohegan territory'' such as pan-roasted Mohegan clams, lobster fritters and salmon.

Tribal officials hope the $6 million construction project can be replicated in other American Indian casinos and elsewhere.

''Maybe as a stand-alone restaurant, possibly in a major city,'' said Mark Brown, the tribal council chairman.

The restaurant would be the tribe's first attempt at a franchise.

The tribe also owns the Pocono Downs racetrack in Pennsylvania and is investing in casinos in Washington and Wisconsin as part of a diversification plan.
