The Granby Bistro staff sails classic Mediterranean ingredients and flavors across tongues and into empty tummy harbors aboard dish vessels influenced by Greek, Middle Eastern, and Italian cuisines. Flavorful entrees populate the dinner menu, including the beef, chicken, or lamb kebab ($14.95), broiled until tender, crowned with roasted nuts, and wrapped alongside rice pilaf in a page of One Thousand and One Nights. The vegetarian grape leaves are stuffed with seasoned rice, tomatoes, olive oil, and onions and ignore warnings to wait two hours before leaping into an accompanying sour cream pool ($14.95). Granby Bistro's breakfast menu rouses taste buds to action with a greek breakfast that buries pita bread beneath feta cheese, olives, cucumbers, and two extra large eggs ($6.95). Arriving in the diner's choice of a platter ($6.45) or sandwich ($5.65), house-specialty falafel blends chickpeas and fava beans, stirs in spring onions and parsley, and fries the mixture before slathering it with a secret recipe sauce. The restaurant's caterers travel to locations with heaping helpings that sate guests at parties or celebrations of baby's first Nobel Prize.
The exposed brick walls, white linen, and framed art in Granby Bistro's dining room welcome patrons to a relaxed meal, and its warmly lit tables can accommodate families large and small. Entertainment at the restaurant includes live belly-dancing most Saturday nights by members of the Rising Dance Ensemble.
