Jacksonville's Southside Gets 2 More Restaurants

The St. John's Town Center gets Suite & Libretto's

Jacksonville, FL - The Town Center, already home to a plethora of restaurants spanning from Firehouse Subs todish_cantina_laredo Maggiano's adds two more restaurants to its offerings.

Two more new restaurant brands will open their first Northeast Florida locations at the Markets at Town Center, bringing more than 100 jobs to the area.

Suite, a tapas lounge and night club, will open late in the fourth quarter and Libretto’s Italian Kitchen and Pizzeria is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2011.

Both restaurants will be located on Big Island Drive, according to a representative of Suite. The two restaurants are not related.

Suite, developed by an investment group led by Charlotte, N.C.-businessman, will be the first of its kind. There are two other Suites, one in Charlotte and the other in Milwaukee, that do not offer tapas.

Libretto’s, founded in New York, operates one pizzeria in Manhattan and two in Charlotte.

The owners of Suite expect to hire 100 to 125 employees. It’s not yet known how many employees will be hired at Libretto’s.

The two restaurants will open on the coattails of two other new restaurants to the Markets at Town Center. BlackFinn American Saloon opened this summer and Whiskey River, a concept developed by race car driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., opened this spring.
