New Mediterranean restaurant coming to Southpoint II

A husband-and-wife team plan to open a Mediterranean restaurant next month near the Lowe’s at the Southpoint II shopping center in Spotsylvania County.

Donna and Mahmoud Morsi hope to open Morsi’s Mediterranean Grill on June 30 in a 1,600-square-foot space at 10219 Southpoint Parkway, which was previously a Zero’s Sub Shop and CJ’s Dawg House. That part of Southpoint II is now full, said Joyce Willis of Vakos Real Estate, which handled the lease.

Morsi’s Mediterranean Grill will serve lunch and dinner seven days a week and deliver within a five-mile radius. The Morsis are now developing the menu.

Donna Morsi said her husband will do the cooking while she will focus on marketing and management. The restaurant will feature an open kitchen that allows customers to see Mahmoud Morsi at work and talk to him.

Mahmoud Morsi was born in Egypt, where he worked at a five-star resort as a pastry chef before coming to the U.S. a little more than a decade ago. He has managed Italian and Mediterranean restaurants in the Fredericksburg and Woodbridge areas and decided to open his own in Spotsylvania not far from where he and his wife live.
