[UPDATE] Summer to Bring Seasons 52 Mall of Georgia Debut

Last June, ToNeTo Atlanta was first to reveal that Seasons 52 planned open a new restaurant at the Mall of Georgia.  We are now pleased to share that the restaurant plans to open Thursday, July 11 June 27.  The new Seasons 52 will open on a previously undeveloped out-parcel of mall anchor JCPenney. 
The restaurant, located at 3265 Buford Drive, is currently under construction and is expected to be about 10,000 square feet.  The new location will be the chain's third in Georgia, following locations on Peachtree Road in Buckhead and on an out-parcel of Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody, both of which opened in 2006.  The brand, developed by Orlando-based multi-concept operator Darden, launched in 2003 in Florida, and Atlanta was its first expansion market.

Darden describes the concept: "Seasons 52 is a wine bar & grill that offers fresh, seasonal restaurant dishes served in a casual and sophisticated atmosphere."  The restaurant is known for supporting a healthy lifestyle with smaller portions and healthier entrees and preparations. 

The Mall of Georgia commercial district is already home to two other Darden concepts: LongHorn Steakhouse and Olive Garden.  LongHorn is located on Mall of Georgia Boulevard at Buford Drive with Olive Garden across the street, also on Buford Drive.  Red Lobster, which up until May 2014 was also owned by Darden, is next to Olive Garden. 

In addition to the Buford location, the Seasons 52 website indicates the company plans to open another location later this month in Florida.  The new Florida location, the chain's eleventh in the sunshine state, is coming to The Colonnade Outlets, a luxury expansion of Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, Florida, and is slated to open April 18.  Sawgrass Mills is, like Mall of Georgia, owned by Simon Property Group.  The upcoming locations will mark the sixth and seventh Simon-owned properties in which Season's 52 operates. 

The other Simon properties in which Season's 52 currently operates are King of Prussia Mall in King of Prussia, PA, Menlo Park Mall  in Edison, NJ, Roosevelt Field in Garden City, NY, St. Johns Town Center in Jacksonville, FL, and The Fashion Mall at Keystone in Simon's headquarters city of Indianapolis, IN. 

Are you a Buford resident excited to see the addition of more healthy eating options coming to the Mall of Georgia area?  What other restaurants or retailers would you like to see open in the Mall of Georgia area?  Where else in metro Atlanta would you like to see Season's 52 open next?

People love Seasons 52. I think it is fine if you want to eat out while on a diet but definitely not my thing.
