Four new restaurants signed leases on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale: Italian fast-casual eatery Vapiano, Del Frisco’s Grille steakhouse, Sushi Shack and Talento, an Italian restaurant.

The Comras Company arranged the 10-year leases on behalf of Las Olas Company, the largest property owner on the popular street, Las Olas president Mike Weymouth said.

Vapiano is taking nearly 5,300 square feet at 715 East Las Olas Boulevard. It’s expected to open in 2019.

Del Frisco’s is leasing about 8,000 square feet at 501 East Las Olas Boulevard and planning to open in November.

Sushi Shack is taking 4,200 square feet at the former Fork & Balls at 1301 East Las Olas Boulevard. It’s planning to open in the fall.
Talento will open in a 5,800-square-foot space at 1307 East Las Olas Boulevard later this year.

Red Door Asian Bistro is also opening next week in a nearly 4,000-square-foot space at 625 East Las Olas Boulevard.

El Camino, a popular Mexican restaurant from Delray Beach, opened in a 4,800-square-foot space at 817 East Las Olas Boulevard last month, said Vann Padgett, senior vice president and director of real estate at Las Olas Company.

The firm is shaking up the tenant mix on the boulevard. It owns nearly 150,000 square feet of retail space, about 135,000 square feet of office space and the 231-key Riverside Hotel on Las Olas. New tenants include Bluemercury, Alex and Ani, and Louie Bossi.
