The talented chefs at Green Olive Grill unite low-cholesterol ingredients, Middle Eastern spices, and heirloom recipes to form a menu of fresh Mediterranean cuisine. The veggie falafel sandwich swaddles lettuce, tomatoes, and onions in a toasty pita blanket ($4.95), while the schawarma beef sandwich mutes bellowing stomachs with flame-broiled tri tip steak before they blurt out Social Security numbers ($5.95). Green Olive entrees––such as the kafta plate featuring two skewers of expertly seasoned ground beef ($9.95)––arrive with an entourage of hummus dip, rice pilaf, pita bread, and a choice of salad or vegetables. While noshing on nutritious morsels, diners can moisten their jugulars with a deluge of classic lebanese mint lemonade ($2.50).
