Vaso Volioti hopes to open the new Vaso’s in July.
The cuisine will remain similar to the Greek, Italian and other Mediterranean concoctions dished out underneath the old Dixie Pig sign on Powhatan Street, but with a few new offerings.
“We’re going to change the menu a little bit,” Volioti said. “More homemade pasta and I’ll have some good veal.”
The King Street restaurant will also feature a larger wine selection, beers on draft, brunch service on Saturday and Sunday and live music on the weekends, she said.
Work continues on an interior renovation at 1118 King St., including some new furnishings and kitchen improvements.
Vaso’s family members are involved in several businesses along King Street, including King’s Jewelry.
“We’re trying to take the street over,” the Cyprus native joked.
Next to the new Vaso’s, Cyrille Brenac is working to open a new French bistro in the former Tiffany Tavern space at 1116 King St.
The owner of Georgetown’s Bistrot Lepic and Wine Bar received approval on plans for his new restaurant earlier this month.
