There's a new Mediterranean restaurant in Johnson City.

Despina's 2 has opened up at 265 Main St.

The original Despina's opened up years ago at 79 Court St. in Binghamton.

The owners say the Binghamton eatery is so popular, they made the investment to create a second eatery, near Wilson Hospital.

Despina's 2 emphasis is on a vegan bar and healthy, tasty eating.

The restaurant features chicken, lamb and beef dishes, including gyros, as well as potato and Greek salads.

"We just have a great clientele and there are people who come from all over the place to get our food and we were given the opportunity to open up in a new location, why not? We have people who travel from a distance and they're closer to Johnson City," said co-owner Jimmy Gray.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

Despina's 2 caters on the weekends.
