Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide lamb kebabs. Split a skewer with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Mediterranean fare at Falafel Grill on Pine Ridge Road or on 9th Street North.
As the Gouda family's binary star of fresh fare, Falafel Grill sports a Mediterranean menu and affinity for seafood. The familial staff crafts all entrees with 100% olive oil, and vegetarian options abound, such as the lentil soup ($3.95) or the falafel wrap ($5.95), not to be confused with the radio-dominating rhymes of MC Hummu$. Alternatively, split a fish tagine, a robust stew cooked in an earthenware pot ($17.95), or drop by for a lunch of gyros ($6.95).
