If the tantalizing aromas from the kitchen aren?t enough to draw customers into Mediterranean City Grill, then the sight of customers chowing down on vibrant Mediterranean dishes at sidewalk tables probably will. Once inside, diners order up succulent rotisserie chicken in platters, shawarmas, kebobs, and wraps. Vegetarian options include falafels with colorful salad and plates of hummus that can be topped with everything from pine nuts to fava beans to grape leaf-wrapped birthday candles.

Chef Bhupender Singh's menu features popular Indian dishes, which are all made fresh daily and incorporate a delicate balance of spices. A bevy of dishes, such as vegetarian and chicken curries, saag paneer, and chicken tikka masala, can rest their tastes atop a bowl-sized serving of basmati rice ($5.95). Or sidle up to two dishes served with basmati rice or a salad on a combo plate ($7.95). The tandori chicken platter features tender chicken marinated in yogurt and spices, then roasted in Saffron's tandor oven ($9.95), and hot samosas ($1.95) and plain or garlic naan ($0.95) play sidekick to the mealheroes. For cleansing spice-sodden palates, chai tea ($2.75) and fresh mango lassi ($2.95) can be swished around mouth chambers. Saffron also boasts a chutney bar full of homemade chutneys and hot chilies, allowing anyone to spicy up dishes or coat their arms in an ineffective sunblock.
