Crimson tablecloths and palm trunks wrapped in holiday lights give Pita Paradise's outdoor patio a celebratory atmosphere. Guests chatter as they sip from hookahs, while servers navigate the clustered tables to deliver dishes. The kitchen staff sears skewers of meats marinated in Mediterranean spices to serve on plates with bright-colored veggies and steaming mounds of rice. Diners can also make a meal of small plates by combining hot and cold mezas, such as crisp falafel, creamy hummus, and stuffed grape leaves. On some nights, live entertainment lights up the patio with dancers, music, and traditional jump ropers.
