Chefs at The Village Mediterranean Restaurant & Pastries prepare a full menu of Mediterranean specialties including lamb, beef, and shrimp kebabs and eight kinds of savory pie bundled in housemade dough. But the restaurant is probably most popular for its traditional Middle Eastern pastries. An in-house pastry chef prepares more than 100 different desserts from scratch. Sticky triangles of cashew, walnut, and almond baklava form one pillar of the pastry roster, while maamoul walnut cookies and namoura—squares of semolina cake soaked in sugar syrup and topped with almonds—are available by the platter should you need to host a party or lure a nest of honeybees away from your stuffed Winnie-the-Pooh.
