Nearly a month after it was originally expected to make its debut, ritzy new River Oaks seafood restaurant Ouzo Bay has finally arrived.

The restaurant kicked open the doors for its first day of service on Wednesday, according to a Facebook post, after a series of construction delays forced the restaurant to push back its planned opening date of June 17. The Greek-inflected, seafood-obsessed restaurant hails from Baltimore, and sits adjacent to sister concept Loch Bar.

As Eater reported back in May, the restaurant is known for its menu of Mediterranean fare that ranges from charcoal-grilled fish to classic offerings like hummus, dolmades, and spanakopita. Next door, at Loch Bar, diners will find lobster rolls, grilled oysters, and more than 400 different types of whiskey from across the globe.

According to its website, the restaurant also has a pretty strict dress code that bans women (sorry, “ladies”) from wearing “baseball caps or beanies,” and prohibits the wearing of activewear after 5 p.m. Sweatpants, hoodies, flip flops, and “clothing with vulgar language” is also verboten.

Ouzo Bay is now open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight.
