Anise Tapas & Grill

This place has so much promise. I was easily swayed to visit by a diverse menu filled with dishes from just about every country touching the Mediterranean, great reviews, and its proximity to home. Occupying a space that used to house the coffee shop Something’s Brewing, it looks like they’ve inherited some of their pub… Continue reading Anise Tapas & Grill

Market Grille Cafe

Opened by an Italian chef, Greek wife, and their family, Market Grille might be best experienced for dinner. Lunch is more casual and quick with customers ordering at the counter, while dinner consists of table side wait service. It may not be the fanciest spot but the quality of the food had me wondering why… Continue reading Market Grille Cafe

Zaytoon Mediterranean Market and Kabob

Part market, part restaurant. But, one hundred percent delicious. From the outside of this family owned shop you’ll be unaware of the awesomeness that lies within. After several visits it’s become my regular spot for Mediterranean food. Their two page menu is packed with tantalizing dishes. But after getting take out at least once a… Continue reading Zaytoon Mediterranean Market and Kabob

Stephano’s Greek & Mediterranean Grill

After getting my teeth cleaned at the dentist a few blocks away, I found this place for dinner. It’s located in a strip mall surrounded by crappy fast food restaurants. The inside is clean and spacious — at least when it’s completely empty it feels big. I went with the tri-tip shwarma which came with… Continue reading Stephano’s Greek & Mediterranean Grill

Yassou Greek Grill Cafe

This little place off of Charleston and Buffalo gets great reviews but I thought it was just alright. Maybe I’m missing something… The steak kabob was decent, but the chicken kabob was better. Both the salad and rice pilaf that came with the combo platter were good and the pita (pre-made and packaged) was soft… Continue reading Yassou Greek Grill Cafe

Paymon’s Mediterranean Cafe & Hookah Lounge

Paymon’s has been one of the most popular Mediterranean eateries in town for years. But, it wasn’t until a week ago that I finally went in to try it. I can’t complain about the food… everything was pretty good. The two dips (hummus and cucumber yogurt, $5.75) to start the meal were both excellent. The… Continue reading Paymon’s Mediterranean Cafe & Hookah Lounge

The Village Mediterranean Grill

Located off of Durango Rd in Spring Valley, this Mediterranean restaurant first began as a fast-casual, order-at-the-counter restaurant. Somewhere along the line that changed to the more upscale format that currently is in place. The interior is a large, open space with plenty of tables and booths surrounding brightly lit trees that serve as the… Continue reading The Village Mediterranean Grill
