Fast casual chain will begin welcoming guests this spring
South Florida-based fast casual chain Miami Grill will open a new location at The Standard at Gainesville this spring. The popular eatery will join a host of other well-known retailers and restaurants — including Chick-fil-A, Chase Bank and Target — at the new mixed-use development on University Avenue.
Miami Grill’s restaurant at The Standard will be the chain’s first Gainesville location. Fueled by an extensive franchise expansion, Miami Grill offers a South Beach vibe and an “Everything Goes” menu. At 2,500 sq. ft., Miami Grill at The Standard will include beer and wine and a modified decor featuring a local school and sports theme. The restaurant will be open late night and will offer delivery.
Developed by Landmark Properties, The Standard at Gainesville opened in August 2017. In addition to commercial retail space, the development features 1,200 bedrooms, serving mostly University of Florida students. An AC by Marriott Hotel is also adjacent to the project. It is located at 13th and University directly across from Heavener Hall at the Warrington College of Business and just a few blocks from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
