CHESAPEAKE, Va. – (July 14, 2021) – Summit Pointe Realty, LLC is pleased to announce that Luce Secondo has leased 6,520 square feet of signature restaurant space at 1500 Belaire Ave. at Summit Pointe. Construction will commence in July with a grand opening anticipated by the end of the year.
One of the region’s top chefs, Antonio “Tony” Caruana, will serve his modern take on regional Italian fusion in Chesapeake’s newest metropolitan center. Featured on Kitchen Ambush, Caruana has demonstrated his creative flair and culinary chops since opening his first restaurant in downtown Norfolk in 2013.
“When you come into my place you can expect a good time with real, live service,” says Caruana. “No pretentiousness, no highfalutin stuff. The dishes all come from my heart and soul. I pay respect to the origins and traditions of Italian food and fuse it all together with my own twist, taste and flair.”
“I also know what a major catalyst Summit Pointe is for Chesapeake and the region,” adds Caruana. “Many of my current customers come from that area. It has huge potential for us to be a part of this and create a new energy and dining scene in Chesapeake.”
“This addition to Summit Pointe elevates our dining offerings in a significant way,” said Chris Williams, senior vice president with Summit Pointe Realty, LLC. “We are thrilled to welcome Tony and his team to one of the most beautifully designed restaurant spaces in the region. We can’t wait to see his vision for Luce Secondo come to life.”
Chris Read, senior vice president, and Jeff Parker, senior vice president with Colliers, negotiated the lease on behalf of Summit Pointe Realty, LLC.
