VERO BEACH - The Citrus Grillhouse, a traditional American bistro with a touch of Italian and French influence, will be the restaurant anchor of Ocean Park of Vero Beach.
The 163-seat restaurant is scheduled to open in December. It will offer indoor and outdoor dining with an ocean view.
Ocean Park, adjacent to Humiston Park, will also have retail shops and residential units. It is being developed by Flamevine Partners.
Chef Scott Varricchio has trained in some of the finest kitchens in the country, including Ouest and La Cote Basque in New York City and Picasso at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. TV food programs and culinary magazines have featured his dishes.
"The flavors of citrus are fresh, crisp and flavorful, which is how I like to describe my dishes," the chef said. "Citrus also happens to be one of my favorite culinary ingredients, so now it's the inspiration for my new restaurant's name."
He said the theme is "urban chic meets beachy."
His wife, Allison, said: "We envision a family-friendly, energetic atmosphere where locals, tourists, families and professionals are always made to feel welcome and comfortable."
Initially, only dinner will be served. They plan to offer breakfast and lunch service at a later date.
