About Us

Nearly ten years ago, Desi Nikolova left her homeland of Bulgaria and moved to the United States with high hopes. What began as an idyllic journey ended in disappointment, the result of which she calls “a sad love story.” Rather than wallowing in self-pity and heartbreak, Desi chose to channel her passion into serving others. In 2011, she launched Desy’s Grill & Bar in Morrisville.

What began as a way to bring the love of Desi’s own grandmother’s hospitality and love of cooking to her new life in America has grown into a thriving hot-spot for locals. They keep coming back to enjoy the taste of their favourite food and drinks with a hint of the flavours of the old world on their plates and in their glasses.

Two years ago, the opportunity to open a new restaurant revealed itself in Cary, North Carolina and Sophie’s Grill and Bar became an addition to Desi’s portfolio. While Desy’s Grill and Bar is established as a local favorite pub, she wanted to elevate the menu in her new restaurant. Offering a wider range of fine dining options, Sophie’s is where Desi got to expand the menu to include more of her traditional recipes.

With a larger space, Sophie’s Grill and Bar is capable of hosting up to two hundred guests, and is a perfect location for your next event or private party. Desi’s guests keep coming back over and over for the fine dining experiences, the wide beverage selection, and the entertainment they enjoy while there. You really should make a reservation, so you can get the full experience, to take it all in.

We’ll see you soon!

Our Menu

Desi Nikolova, owner of Desy’s Grill and Bar in Morrisville and Sophie’s Grill and Bar in Cary, serves up dishes from her native country of Bulgaria as well as countries neighboring the Black Sea. Desi mixes her own flair into her traditional Eastern European inspired menu.

The choices range from light salads or appetizers to start. You will also find a crowd-pleasing collection of burgers hot off the grill. The main courses offer traditional or vegetarian lasagna. Entrees and specials include more variety with salmon, chicken or duck dishes, which are all deliciously prepared with family recipes from the old world. Sophie’s Grill and Bar has a selection of sandwiches, including the mouth-watering philly cheese steak fit for any appetite!

There is certainly something for everyone at Sophie’s Grill & Bar!
