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 $12, you get $25 worth of Turkish and Mediterranean fare and nonalcoholic drinks at Mediterranean Grill in Freeport.
Mediterranean Grill's chefs wield fresh ingredients from local farmers and fishers to concoct a menu teeming with classic Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. The vegetable moussaka lets potato, eggplant, and onion tread through the chefs' special béchamel sauce ($15.95), and the tiropita hugs herb- and cheese-sautéed ground beef safe with a crispy, golden-baked pastry ($17.95). Like the caveman that invented marshmallows, marinated lamb and beef stand in front of an open flame, slow-roasting on a vertical spit to create the doner-gyro kebab ($17.95). Diners looking for fresh seafood sink forks into sautéed scallops mixed with veggies and doused in wine sauce ($23.95). Golden walls enclose sleek black chairs inside the eatery's dining room, and an outdoor patio shields diners from sunlight and UFO abductions with umbrellas.
The chefs at Mediterranean Grill, an eatery favorably reviewed by the Portland Press Herald, prepare Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine using imported cheeses and local ingredients like sweet Maine lobster. Diners can sate appetites with skewers of shrimp or kofte meatballs or opt for an entree such as moussaka baked with lamb, mozzarella, eggplant, zucchini, onion, potatoes, and creamy béchamel sauce. After main courses have been devoured, servers sweeten palates with honey-drenched baklava and potent Turkish coffee. Mediterranean Grill also offers authentic gluten free home made Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine.
