The plans call for significant renovation of a space in the Village Shops section of Town & Country, between First Watch and Panera Bread. The proposed work includes removing existing flooring “down to the slab” and removing the existing ceiling and lighting fixtures and building out a new restaurant that could seat as many as 49.

The submission of plans for review by any government agency is among the initial steps in the development of a new restaurant or other retail shop, and the project will have to navigate several more potential regulatory and financial obstacles before a restaurant could open and serve its first customers.
