2257 Chestnut Street, Marina
Coskun "George" Bektas closed his four-year-old business, Marina & Kebab in July, and he's ready to soft-open a new concept in the space this afternoon at 3 p.m. The new "wine bistro bar" spotted last month will be called Marina Bistro & Wine Bar. Bektas says he didn't want to serve fast food any more, so this will be a sit-down affair, offering a menu of mostly Italian- and French-American fare. Think crab cakes, duck pate, roasted beet salad, and many other dishes a hungry Marina dweller might desire at any given moment.
The space has room for 12 at the bar, 26 in the dining room, and eight sidewalk seats once the permits come through. Hours here are Monday to Saturday from 11a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The bar will stay open after dinner service, nightly. Happy hour specials will be offered daily from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Take a look at the full menu below.
