Destiny USA will get its newest restaurant next week.
It is located on the first level of the Canyon section in the mall's expansion area. The staff will hold some practice events for friends and family over the weekend to prepare for opening day, according to Rob Schoeneck, Destiny general manager.
Texas de Brazil's 8,000-square-foot location features a glassed-in dining area. The bar area and nearby seating will be open to the mall.
The chain has locations throughout the U.S. and will open additional restaurants in Rochester, Colonie, Buffalo and New York City this year and next. Architectural styles vary by location.
Among a half-dozen new businesses now under construction is World of Beer, a chain of bard with a focus on craft beer. The Syracuse location is one of eight being opened this year and early next year.
