Seasons 52 has announced Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook, Illinois, as a site for its next restaurant, which is slated to open in a year.

The new restaurant will be the company’s 22nd location and the second in the Chicago area.

Stephen Judge, the company president, who joined the organization in March 2007, is focused on securing premium real estate sites to fuel the concept’s expansion.

“Oakbrook Center is an ideal setting for Seasons 52,” he says. “The combination of upscale residential living, shopping, dining and entertainment provides a lifestyle environment compatible with the Seasons 52 concept.

“The success of the Seasons 52 in Schaumburg solidified our plans to open more restaurants in the area, and we’re looking forward to bringing our innovative, seasonal menu to a whole new set of diners from both downtown Chicago and the western suburbs,“ adds Judge.

The nearly 10,000-square-foot Seasons 52 at Oakbrook Center will seat more than 300 diners, including 118 seats in the main dining room and 95 in the piano bar, which will feature live entertainment nightly.

The restaurant will also offer four private dining rooms and an exclusive chef’s table. The new restaurant is expected to create approximately 100 new jobs in Oak Brook.
