Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide lamb kebabs.

CousCous Mediterranean's owner and chef Nick Shams handcrafts a healthy menu of Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Diners can prime bellies with a small house salad drizzled in the restaurant's signature lemon-basil dressing or a healthy side, such as the wheat- and gluten-free garbanzo chips. To activate the brain's seafood receptors, taste buds dive into a bowl of lemony shrimp scampi or a cheesy seafood bake, which pits marinara-varnished salmon and shrimp against tendrils of angel-hair pasta. The Mediterranean burrito's couscous, refried garbanzo beans, yogurt-dill sauce, and ground lamb form a delicate fusion of culinary styles, and a selection of 10-inch gourmet flatbreads support sundry toppings, from a simple blend of two cheeses to a garden-ransacking spread of mushrooms, sweet peppers, fresh basil, and ceramic geese in bonnets. Diners can supplement each entree with a medium-size beverage and seal them into stomachs with a delectable dessert.
Though CousCous Mediterranean Grill sometimes features online discounts, this Groupon still represents the best deal.
