A third Dmitri's

Exclusive: The Queen Village-rooted Hellenic haven is expanding into Northern Liberties.

A third Dmitri's


Better start buying octopus futures.

Dmitri Chimes, whose Dmitri's at Third and Catharine and 23d and Pine are perched atop most best-of lists for down-home Greek dining, is plotting a third location.

He told me that next week, he will sign a lease at 944 N. Second St. in Northern Liberties, the corner spot at Second and Laurel that's been a couple of short-lived coffee bars, including Elixir Cafe.

It's just down the block from the Piazza at Schmidts and more or less catercorner to Cantina Dos Segundos.

BYOB. He's hoping to open in late September.
