Jose Andres confirms he is opening a restaurant at Dallas Cowboys World HQ in Frisco

Buried in the Dallas Cowboys announcement of new restaurant tenants for their World Headquarters development, The Star in Frisco, was some pretty splashy news:

“Zaytinya: Taking inspiration from Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines, Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu. With a focus on small plates, guests are encouraged to share the authentic and innovative fare. Complementing the meal are creative cocktails as well as unique Mediterranean wines, hand-selected by Wine Director and Master Sommelier, Andy Meyers. Zaytinya first opened in Washington, D.C. in 2002 and since then has earned many awards and accolades, most recently receiving a Bib Gourmand distinction from the first DC Michelin Guide, two three-star reviews from the Washington Post, and the #9 spot on Washingtonian’s ‘100 Very Best Restaurant 2016’ list.”

Chef Jose Andres is the chef behind Zaytinya, and he confirmed to me last night that he is indeed opening a restaurant in DFW. Pretty cool news.
