LAKEWOOD RANCH — A popular downtown Sarasota restaurant is expanding into the greater Lakewood Ranch area.
Benderson Development Co. announced Selva Grill will open a second location at University Town Center in summer 2020, according to a press release.
Selva Grill is known for dishes inspired by Peruvian cuisine. The menu features ceviches and dishes such as empanadas, seafood paella and salmon chileno topped with crab and manchego.
The restaurant will occupy a 5,000-square-foot space on Cattlemen Road in the West District of UTC, adjacent to Jared the Galleria of Jewelry. The new space will have outdoor and indoor seating as well as a lighted mural by Douglas Higgins, the artist who designed the Starry Night-inspired mural in the original location.
"UTC is a unique shopping and dining destination with a mix of exceptional retailers, and it speaks volumes about the district's continued growth and success that Selva Grill chose this for its second location," says Benderson Executive Director of Leasing Mark Chait in a statement.
