Breaking: Zaytinya, the restaurant from celeb chef Jose Andres, has closed at the Star
Zaytinya, the excellent Mediterranean restaurant from celebrated chef Jose Andres, has shuttered. The restaurant debuted in February, 2018.
Insiders say employees were notified today of the closure. Calls to the restaurant this afternoon went directly to voicemail.
A staff member at a restaurant located in the same complex as Zaytinya at the Star in Frisco says Zeytinya employees are congregating in his restaurant to commiserate. Another Star restaurateur told me word of Zaytinya’s imminent closure had been swirling recently but the surprised was that it happened today.
Sad, bad news. I really liked that place. Hearing that a fancy resto close to Zaytinya may be next…
