Lionel Messi already owns the soccer world. Soon, he'll own a restaurant as well, though it's really going to be much, much more than that.
The Barcelona star's "Bellavista del Jardin del Norte" is set to open this summer in the heart of Barcelona, with Messi's brother, Rodrigo serving as manager.
According to Spanish newspaper Sport, the restaurant will be roughly 10,760 square feet and resemble an actual town, complete with a church (with belltower!), a cinema, barbershop, grocery store, news kiosk and a town square. Basically it will be a miniature mall ... in a restaurant.
It all sounds very nice, but will they serve Ballon d'oeuvres?
