Federal Realty Signs Restaurant Tenant at Melville Mall
Federal Realty Investment Trust has signed Cava, a growing Mediterranean brand, as the final tenant at its new 15,000-square-foot building at Melville Mall. The restaurant will open this summer at the grocery-anchored power center in the Long Island community of Melville, NY.
Rounding out the restaurant lineup is Lucharitos, a taqueria and tequila bar from Greenport, and Taste of the Orient from Yaas Café, both opening in June. AT&T and a locally owned Club Pilates studio opened in December and Manhattan-based Gregory’s Coffee opens this winter at the property.
“Cava brings a great new healthy lunch option to the area,” said Mark Brennan of Federal. “This new group of tenants expands the variety of options and conveniences that Melville Mall offers the community and continues to make it an essential destination for area residents and workers.”
