A restaurant and an event planner have taken space next to the East Avenue Inn & Suites, officials announced Thursday.

City Grill and Ballroom384 are the newest additions at property owned by John Billone Jr. on the northeast corner of East Avenue and Alexander Street.

“The addition of City Grill and Ballroom384 further solidifies East Avenue and Alexander Street as a restaurant and entertainment destination,” Mayor Lovely Warren said in a statement.

“I’m especially pleased that 75 new jobs have been created as a result of the restaurant’s opening, and I am confident that City Grill will be successful at this great location.”

Owner Michael Tascione and managing partner Alan Russell have a combined 55 years of experience with restaurants, bars and event planning, officials said.

The restaurant has a 1,500-square-foot patio with an outdoor fireplace and fire pit. The inside includes a wood-fired pizza oven and a full-service bar. The menu features prime rib steaks, seafood, sandwiches and salads.

Ballroom384 offers event planning and banquet services, and a ballroom for up to 200 guests.
