Darden Restaurants will open a Seasons 52 restaurant in the Shops at North Bridge in the fall, the company said Tuesday.
The eatery, described as a "fresh grill and wine bar" on its Web site, will occupy 6,000 square feet in the building adjacent to the mall at 55 E. Grand Ave.
"The Shops at North Bridge is an ideal setting for our guests -- people who celebrate living well while enjoying upscale dining, shopping and entertainment," said spokesman Hunter Robinson.
In recent weeks, several storefronts, including Cosi and Marbles in have shuttered in the Grand Avenue commercial space. A spokeswoman for Macerich, the Santa Monica, Calif-based company that operates the Shops at North Bridge declined to comment.
Orlando-based Darden also owns Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Capital Grille and other restaurant brands.
