Ask Italian is the latest restaurant signing to be announced for the £85 million extension to the Eastbourne Arndale Centre.
The restaurant will be situated on the first floor of the 170,000 sq ft scheme, alongside the entrance to the new nine-screen cinema that will be operated by Cineworld.
Ask will join Nando's, Byron, Frankie & Benny's and Chiquito on the same floor while Wagamama and Carluccio's will be located on the ground floor.
Neil Crawford, Head of Retail & Leisure Development for Legal & General Property, said, "This is yet another quality restaurant signing, and very good news for the scheme."
Work is now complete on the first £2 million phase of the extension to create a contemporary glass atrium at the Centre's west entrance, nearest Banker's Corner, and upgrade nearby shop fronts and facades to be in keeping with the style of the new extension.
