From rib eye to protein shakes, these five new dining options are coming soon to Grapevine and Southlake.
1. Balkan Garden Bistro coming soon to 2140 Hall Johnson Road, Ste. 118, in the vineyard. Owner Elvis Ramovic said he expects the restaurant to open in September or October. He said the Balkan Garden Bistro will serve a mix of “premium restaurant products,” including wine, cocktails, premium rib eye steaks, pastas, burgers and more. The dishes will be served taking into account the presentation, said Ramovic.
“It’s all meant to be a social media moment where you can’t wait to pull out your phone and record it and post it and show it to your friends and get excited about it,” Ramovic said.
The restaurant will offer items from the Balkans to Eastern Europe. He said many items on the menu will be similar to Mediterranean dishes but “with a little twist”. 817-975-7105. www.instagram.com/balkan_garden_bistro
