Balkan Dining expands space, adds bathroom

Balkan Dining, Tonawanda’s Bosnian restaurant, has renovated to offer customers more seating, and a bathroom.

The family restaurant, at 687 Kenmore Ave., opened in December 2013, in a former pizzeria near Kenmore and Starin avenues. It specializes in Bosnian favorites like cevapi, beef sausages in housemade bread, and made-to-order savory pastries called pita, or burek, stuffed with fillings like spinach and cheese, or beef and cheese.

Owner Senad Soteli finished a renovation project earlier this month that added space for two more tables. There’s also a new bathroom, so customers no longer must trek through the kitchen to use the facilities.
