BRIEF - Downtown is set to get a new high-end Italian Restaurant. A future concept that will be unique to Tallahassee and brought to us by the owners of the highly acclaimed Sage restaurant.

According to reports, business partners Terry White and Craig Richardson, owners of Sage, have inked a deal with the Brian Ballard, CEO of Ballard Partners. Ballard is the owner of the new 6-story contemporary office tower recently built at the southeast corner of Monroe and Park Avenue and has been rumored to be courting a high end restaurant for the ground floor retail space of his iconic new downtown office building.

Talks of chains such as Ruth Chris Steakhouse have swirled in the UrbanTallahassee message boards for some time, but according to an article published today, Ballard notes, "I've known Terry a long time and, in my heart, I always wanted it to be local."

The new local Italian Steakhouse does not yet have a name, but is expected to open within a 7,000 square foot space in late summer or early fall 2018.
