Craftsman tools and Kenmore refrigerators will be replaced by veal parmigiana and Picanha sirloin at Simon’s Burlington Mall in Massachusetts.

Simon Property Group announced two years ago that it would convert part of its vacated Sears anchor into a high-end dining gallery, and it now has announced its lineup.

Four restaurants have signed leases for the space. They are Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chao, Major Food Group’s Italian restaurant Parm, Maine-based Bennett’s Sandwich Shop, and Shake Shack. All are expected to open this fall.

Sears’s freestanding automotive center at the site has become Village at Burlington Mall and houses 12 shops. In addition, Simon plans to create a one-acre green space outside the dining pavilion.
