Five Things to Know About Medi
With its satisfying sandwiches and its equally delectable spread of salads, soups, and chips, Medi has long been the default lunch spot for many hungry locals. While some regulars have their everyday favorites and others order that day's special, you should read on to learn everything you need to know before ordering:
"Medi" is short for Mediterranean. Diners taste this regional influence in the falafel paninis, Greek salads, and salami-laden focaccia. But the menu also has plenty of Stateside standards, too, like Reubens, chipotle-chicken sandwiches, and pasta salads.
Keep an eye out for specials. Most days bring a brand-new sandwich to the menu—but only for a short amount of time. While considering your options, peek inside the ordering window, where a sign displays that day's special.
It's only open for weekday lunches. Hours are 10:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., Monday–Friday.
It can get a little crowded. Chefs' speedy tempo and epicurean talents mean Medi is a popular lunchtime destination. To avoid the throng, some seasoned Medi-goers recommend visiting before noon or after 2.
The line starts at the back of the restaurant. This can confuse first-time guests, but once you know the layout, you'll be ordering with ease.
