Tazinos Pizza & Salad Bistro will open on the Milwaukee River at CityCenter at 735 at 735 N. Water St.   The Riverwalk location will be the fourth Tazinos in the greater Milwaukee area and the first in City of Milwaukee.

"Tanzinos is finally coming to Downtown Milwaukee," said company president and CEO Jim Purcell.  "There has been significant interest in introducing our brand to the Downtown community, and we are extremely pleased to be bringing it to such a prominent and historic venue as the CityCenter building," Purcell added in a news release.  

The restaurant will occupy 4,000 square feet at street level with indoor and outdoor seating. 

In addition, Tanzilos will open in Germantown in "late 2012."  

The restaurant opened its first location in Oak Creek in 2007, and also has locations in Menomonee Falls and Pleasant Prairie.  The company plans additional expansion announcements in the coming weeks.
