Five growing boys equals five hungry mouths to feed. This is how Moe Elkasri got his start: cooking healthy food for himself and his brothers. Later, in 1990, this experience served him well when he opened the original Pita's Republic, which has since bloomed into 16 locations. His eateries focus on crafting food on-site that is flavorful and nutritious, unlike mints made from seaweed. To this end, most dishes start with whole grain pita bread, made from Moe's secret recipe, which wrap around protein such as fresh, marinated chicken. Low-fat yogurt forms the base of the tzaziki sauce, and gyro meat is broiled to rid it of excess fat. Vegetarians also find satisfaction here with pitas brimming with hummus, veggies, and tabouli.
