What would the Mediterranean look like if it were relocated to a dance club? The answer would probably be Muncheez Mania. Amid upbeat music, splotches of UV lighting, and brightly painted cityscapes, the casual eatery’s cooks serve a mishmash of Lebanese, Italian, Turkish, French, Greek, and American food. On flatbreads and Mankoushe that are stretched by hand, they place authentic ingredients such as halloumi cheese, falafel, labneh, and zaatar plucked from Zeus’s lunch pail. The cooks also toss together tabbouleh and caesar salads and stuff pizzas into hot and hungry ovens. Customers can order sweet Nutella or Kinder chocolate crepes, or savory ham-and-cheese crepes from the curbside window that is open on weekends.
