There’s no doubt that it’s been a big year for the Ciccio Restaurant Group. The minds behind several Tampa foodie hotspots, including Fresh Kitchen, Daily Eats, Green Lemon and Ciccio Water, have seen their restaurants expand to Boca Raton and Orlando. Now on the heels of the expansion, the group is adding a new concept at the corner of Platt and Howard.
While the name has yet to be announced, CRG parter Steven Lanza states diners can expect a fast-casual restaurant with a Mexican inspired menu that blends traditional Southwest flavors with the health conscious ingredients the group has become known for.
The restaurant is expected to open in early 2018.
