The Mockingbird Station makeover continues with another new restaurant opening in June. Mezze Mediterranean is taking over the ground-level space in front of the Angelika theater that was formerly occupied by Herrera's and prior to that, Margarita Ranch.

According to a spokesperson, the restaurant will open in mid-June.

"We're hoping to be open by June 12," says manager Suzanne York.

Mezze comes from the same owners as Edith's French Bistro, another new restaurant at Mockingbird Station that opened in May.

It'll be a little different from the usual Mediterranean restaurant around Dallas in that it will feature an open kitchen with a 12-foot rotisserie for roasting whole animals on fire spits, specifically lamb and pig.

The restaurant will aspire to be farm to table, and will serve from-scratch sangrias and cocktails, and a big brunch.

Indoor and outdoor seating with an open bar will face the Angelika.
