Restaurant Traffic has learned that Seasons 52 is currently looking at sites to open their first store in the Carolina's. The heavyweight restaurant group Darden is behind Seasons 52. Darden also owns Red Lobster, Olive Garden and The Capital Grille. Seasons 52 is known for it's fresh seasonal menu and healthy offerings. Nothing on the menu is over 475 calories. I have been to Seasons 52 in Orlando and the food and atmosphere is great.
Where will they go? They are currently looking at Southpark (like every other restaurant group) but we have a feeling that Ballantyne could also be in play. The old City Range site makes a lot of sense.
Stay tuned to Restaurant Traffic for more Restaurant Rumors and we will as usual try to bring you the happenings on what is going on in the Charlotte restaurant scene first.
