Congratulations to BCW Member Ginsburg Development Companies on the recent Grand Opening of Medi Bistro, a new restaurant in downtown White Plains offering Persian cuisine. Located at 50 Main Street as part of GDC’s City Square mixed-use complex, Medi Bistro is the first of several new restaurants that GDC is bringing to Main Street to make City Square a culinary destination.

Medi Bistro is owned by GDC Principal Martin Ginsburg in partnership with accomplished restaurateur Par Shakiban. “We are very pleased to be opening this beautiful new restaurant at our City Square development. We are especially glad to be working with noted and successful restaurateur Par Shakiban. Medi Bistro is a critical component of our overall plan to create a vibrant and lively streetscape along Main Street,” said Ginsburg.

GDC is currently building an extension of 50 Main along Main Street and South Lexington Avenue that will house four future restaurants, all serviced by the complex’s 1,000 space parking garage.

“Bringing street-level vibrancy to this area has been a goal of the City. I congratulate Martin Ginsburg and accomplished restaurateur Pan Shakiban for working with the City to create a place for diners. Their creation Medi Bistro is a welcomed addition,” said Mayor Roach.

“I am very proud to introduce Medi Bistro, which celebrates the nostalgic cuisine of my childhood when I watched my mother prepare the most delicious Persian dishes,” said Shakiban. “The secret to this sophisticated cuisine is the use of fresh ingredients and genuinely fresh herbs, some of which are imported from the Middle East and India.” Shakiban has owned many food establishments, including Par’s Steak & Seafood Houses in four locations in Westchester County since 1968.

Medi Bistro is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Sunday brunch is served until 3:30 p.m.
