Sure, Dallas has a few really great Mediterranean restaurants, but there’s always room for more kofta and pitas. Which is exactly what Open Sesame Grill will bring when it debuts next month.

CultureMap reports that the cheekily-named restaurant will open its doors at 2615 Oak Lawn Ave in the coming weeks, taking over the space formerly occupied by Samson’s Hot Dogs. According to owner Mo Kamal, the restaurant will serve up “authentic Lebanese” fare, particularly kafta, a spiced meatball that will be tucked into freshly-baked pita.

The new spot will focus on serving up cheap eats, like pita sandwiches, which means that you’ll be able to score lunch at the forthcoming eatery for less than $10. Open Sesame Grill is set to open its doors at some point in February, at which time you’ll be able to satisfy your recently-inspired craving for kafta.
