The menu at Baba Pita culls a medley of Mediterranean dishes from game, seafood, and fresh vegetables. The shrimp plate pairs a heap of jumbo fantail shrimp with tartar sauce, and the meat combination pits shawarma, kebab, and kufta morsels against each other in a ring-shaped plate ($10.95 each). Meatless creations include veggie dolma—a bushel of stuffed grape leaves served with seasoned rice and fresh lemon salad—and the falafel plate with hummus and tahini sauce ($8.95 each). Seven pita sandwiches pocket shawarma, falafel, kebabs, and business cards ($5.45–$6.35).
The catering menu amasses a spread for coworkers enjoying a working lunch or an athlete trying to move up a weight class, with appetizers and platters that serve up to 12 people. Edible excursions begin with herbivorous nibbles such as hummus ($30), fattoush salad ($30), and falafel ($12), before meaty stockpiles of beef shawarma and grilled salmon ($70 each) insulate stomachs.
The chefs at Baba Pita cater their cuisine to healthy eaters by packing their huge menu of hummus, baba gannouj, tabbouleh, falafel, beef kebabs, and chicken shawarma with low-fat, low-carb options. Vegetarian-friendly fare is visible thanks to the glow of hanging light fixtures, and Middle Eastern artwork and décor allude to the eatery's Lebanese roots. Delicately plated eats steam as they’re brought to tables, with edibles arranged on platters so eager eaters can share easily. Though the rumbling of the “L” may be heard occasionally, hearty portions will successfully silence all tummies inside.
