New restaurant opens 1st Dayton-area location at Austin Landing 

A health-focused restaurant concept known for its fruit- and veggie-based bowls and smoothies will open its first Dayton-area location, and only the second in Ohio, at 8 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 6 at the Austin Landing development in southern Montgomery County.

A grand opening celebration is in the works two days later, on Saturday, Dec. 8, for Frutta Bowls, a restaurant concept that began just two years ago in New Jersey and has spread to a dozen states. Frutta Bowls opened its first Ohio location earlier this year in Deerfield Towne Center in southern Warren County.
