Fresh grill and wine bar restaurant Seasons 52 (Orlando, Fla.) plans to open its next location in South Coast Plaza, in Costa Mesa, Calif. The new restaurant is expected to open in fall 2010 and will be the company's first in California.
Seasons 52 has built a reputation for a fresh approach to dining with a menu from award-winning chef Clifford Pleau that’s inspired by the seasons and the appeal of a farmer's market.
Company president Stephen Judge, who joined the organization in March 2007, says he’s focused on securing premium real estate locations to fuel the concept's expansion. "Strategically located in the heart of Orange County, South Coast Plaza is an internationally recognized retail destination that enjoys all the benefits of a major metropolitan area," he says. "It’s a blend of commerce and culture, surrounded by Orange County's central business district, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, and John Wayne Airport."
Seasons 52 debuted in 2003 and operates locations in Florida, Georgia and New Jersey.
