Construction is set to begin on J. Alexander’s, an upscale restaurant coming to The Summit at Fritz Farm. According to a building permit filed with the city, the restaurant will be at 4081 Finn Way, with estimated construction costs of more than $3.5 million.
The 8,100-square-foot restaurant is scheduled to open in October, according to the announcement made last August, with seating for more than 220 customers. Nashville-based J. Alexander’s offers contemporary American food, much of it wood-fired, and features steaks, prime rib and seafood, sandwiches and entree salads. J. Alexander’s also will have a full-service bar, and wines by the glass and bottle.
The company has restaurants in Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Texas. There is a Redlands Grill by J. Alexander’s in Louisville.
Other restaurants at The Summit will include Honeywood by local chef Ouita Michel; Shake Shack; Steel City Pop’s; Ted’s Montana Grill; and a food hall to showcase local purveyors, including Crank & Boom and Athenian Grill.
