Under the direction of Michelin-starred chef José Andrés and head chef Jon Thompson, Zaytinya offers an innovative shared “mezze” menu, inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines, served in a sleek and modern setting. Located at The Star in Frisco, the restaurant features small plates, creative cocktails, and unique Mediterranean wines, making for a rich cultural and culinary experience.
Signature dishes include the Spit Roasted Lamb Shoulder with harissa, cucumber tzatziki, and garlic toum; Crispy Brussels Afelia with barberries and garlic yogurt; and Spanokopita with house-made phyllo, spinach, and feta cheese. In addition to Mediterranean wines, Zaytinya boasts a menu of innovative cocktails featuring unique and authentic spirits like Raki, Ouzo, and Arak.
From a corporate event to a dinner party, the shared small plates are ideal for group dining. Those interested in an intimate dining experience can book the private dining room enclosed by a library of Mediterranean wines and decorated with hand-dipped Aegean blue curtains.
A specially-priced Mezze Ora menu takes place Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and offers a selection of cocktails for $7, wines by the glass for $6 and beer for $5 in addition to an array of savory bites. Weekend brunch-goers can create their own dining experience from the chef-selected mezze brunch menu for $25.
