The new Mall at University Town Center has its first official restaurant.
Seasons 52, a fresh grill and wine bar, announced plans Friday to open a location at the shopping center now under construction at Interstate 75 and University Parkway, just south of the Manatee County line.
"The Sarasota location will feature a warm, welcoming ambiance centered on a casual, but sophisticated, dining room with rich mahogany accents, a custom-built wine cellar and two private dining rooms," the company said in a press release posted on line.
The restaurant will also have a piano bar with live music nightly.
It's slated to be open in "late 2014," the company said.
The Mall at UTC is scheduled to open in October 2014. Already announced tenants are Macy's, Dillard's and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Seasons 52, developed by Orlando-based Darden Restaurants, is known for a "seasonally inspired" menu that changes four times a year, with no items more than 475 calories.
There are 40 Seasons 52 locations listed on the company's website, including in Tampa and Orlando, with plans for several more in the next year.
