Jose Andres Balances Running a High-End Mediterranean Restaurant In Cowboy Country

In early 2018, celebrity chef and restaurateur José Andrés opened a second location of his popular Washington, D.C., restaurant, Zaytinya, at the Star in Frisco.

The Star serves as the official headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys, with an indoor field, practice space for the team and retail and entertainment spaces as well. Zaytinya, Andrés’ Turkish concept, joined the ranks of popular Dallas outposts such as Cane Rosso, crushcraft Thai Eats, East Hampton Sandwich Co., Mi Cocina and Neighborhood Services.

Andrés has been expanding his restaurant empire for years now, with locations of his restaurant brands in California, Vegas, Florida and Mexico. The Frisco location of Zaytinya was his first foray into Texas.

“The Star in Frisco is an area in Dallas that’s showing big growth,” Andrés says. “When opening a new restaurant, you’re trying to find this perfect balance of growth in a new part of town. The Star in Frisco has many of these characteristics.”
