UPDATED: Greek restaurant takes place of The Commissary at One Arts Plaza
It's now called The Greek and opens October 19.
DALLAS Burger spot The Commissary, formerly helmed by "most hated" chef John Tesar, is closing in One Arts Plaza in Dallas. The owners of Ziziki's will take over the space and open
Meze - Small Plates and Wine Bar The Greek--Pita, Meze, Wine, according to a statement from One Arts Plaza.
[UPDATE: The restaurant is not called Meze anymore; it's The Greek.
“As the menu evolved and expanded from a focus on solely mezes (small plates) to pitas, mezes, and big platters, we found the name Meze was too limiting and confused the public who did not immediately recognize that meze was Greek,” said Mary Arabatzis, co-owner.
UPDATEx2: The restaurant opens October
"The new restaurant will offer fresh, flavorful small plates, all featuring the same Greek flavors we love from Ziziki’s," according to the statement.
Owners Costa and Mary Arabatzis are seeking out the business lunch crowd during the day and the pre- and post- Arts District crowd at night.
The Greek will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight.
