Stelia Cafe Lounge offering diners Mediterranean cuisine
By Paris Goodnight
Stelia Café Lounge is offering downtown “a touch of class and sophistication” at the former location of Escape the Daily Grind at 118 N. Main St.
Juan Manuel Correa said he’s bringing a Mediterranean cuisine to the restaurant that seats 56, or up to 70 including the lounge area.
He has seven full-time employees at the restaurant.
It has a dress code of no sneakers or T-shirts. Correa said the restaurant will be smoke free until 9:30 p.m., and the kitchen closes at 10 p.m., when smoking will be allowed until closing time.
Correa said he plans to start opening for lunch in a couple of weeks, but for now Stelia opens at 4 p.m. daily except Monday. It closes at midnight daily except Thursday-Saturday, when it will stay open until 2 a.m.
He said daily specials will be offered beside what’s on the standard menu.
The phone number is 704-638-6266.
