Locally-owned Latitude Seafood Company to open at Stony Point mall

RICHMOND, Va. – Stony Point Fashion Park has a lot of news to share lately, with its $50 million redevelopment underway.

On Wednesday, Virginia-based Latitude Seafood Company, announced a spring 2018 opening at the Richmond outdoor mall.

Latitude is owned by four friends from the Richmond area, an airy, contemporary seafood restaurant that matches a large menu of fish-focused items with craft cocktails, wines and beers. They also serve pastas, steaks and burgers. Latitude operates a restaurant in Westchester Commons that they will remain open in addition to the Stony Point location.

Latitude Seafood Company joins 14 other businesses that have opened at Stony Point Fashion Park in the last three months as part of the center’s redevelopment.

““We’re pleased to welcome Latitude; it complements our dining mix and we’re proud to champion local entrepreneurs,” said Vince Mistretta, Stony Point general manager.

The restaurant interior will have a modern, rustic aesthetic,  with a unique mix of materials such as weathered woods, copper, colorful mosaic and ceramic tiles, modern wallpaper and custom lighting. In the warmer months, guests can dine outside on the patio, which seats more than 60 people.

“We are opening a new Latitude at Stony Point because we see the vision and progress their parent company, Starwood Retail Partners, has for the property as well as the new neighborhood developments coming from both VCU and surrounding builders,” said Latitude co-owner Kevin Grubbs. “We are also a good fit for the area—our fresh scratch kitchen, happy hours and menu selection—all are favorites in Richmond. We look forward to being a part of the Stony Point experience.”

There are more than 50 stores at the mall, including restaurants and a six-screen CinéBistro theater. Stores include Saks Fifth Avenue, Anthropologie, Tiffany & Co., Restoration Hardware, Sur La Table, Vineyard Vines, H&M (opening on Thursday, Dec. 7) and more.

Later in December Joseph’s Designs and Hacked Hair Salon will open.

Other dining options include Brio Tuscan Grille, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse P.F. Chang’s, Panera Bread, Les Crepes, Nino’s Italian Delight and Chipotle.

Amid all the renovations and openings, the New-York based Anchor bar shuttered its spot at the mall after just eight months open.
