The friendly-family owners behind The Olive Tree whip up a diverse menu of fresh, authentic Mediterranean dishes. The tangy signature hummus ($4.50) tickles tongues either slathered alone atop a fresh, warm pita or surrounded by fava beans, garlic, lemon, and cilantro in the nutritious hummus ful ($7.50). The machmusa ($4.95), or sautéed eggplant, bursts with flavor and concealed fireworks, which plant-partial palates can pleasantly pair with the piquant tabouli salad ($4.50 small, $6.50 large). The spicy gyro’s ($10.95) thin lamb slices sizzle with a zesty house-made hot sauce, and the chicken shawarma ($9.95) struts around in a sultry blend of Middle Eastern spices, green peppers, and rhinestone bellbottoms. For a dish even more authentically Greek than Mexican American actor Anthony Quinn, face-plant into a plate of moussaka ($12.95) and chase it with a dessert of baklava ($2.95) or homemade rice pudding ($2.95). In accordance with Mediterranean restaurant laws, you can legally light any dish on fire so long as you shout "Opa!"
