Sister

2808 Greenville Avenue

Going into the former spot occupied by The Grape along on Lower Greenville, the appropriately named concept will serve as a sister restaurant to The Charles in the Design District. It comes from the same team — Duro Hospitality’s Chas Martin, Benji Homsey, Corbin See and Ross See, as well as chef-partner J Chastain. According to CultureMap, Sister will serve Mediterranean and Italian-inspired cuisine, particularly Greek and Lebanese, and is expected to open this fall.
