The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious curry, shawarma, and pita bread growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean cuisine at Mediterranean Grill.
Mediterranean Grill’s chefs stir steaming pots and flip piping-hot pans to forge Mediterranean eats such as hummus, curry, and pasta. Foreshadow entrees by snacking an appetizer of baba gannouj, a roasted eggplant dip with pita bread ($4.95) for scooping up the culinary treat or replacing Frisbees that are not as delicious as they were in the past. The dinner bell portends the arrival of sizzling entrees, inviting diners to feast upon braised lamb shanks ($16.95) or herb-crusted salmon filets lubricated by lobster sauce ($14.95). To trick picky eaters, the kitchen staff, like farmers during the American Revolution, smuggle sautéed vegetables and zingy spices inside comforting pasta and grain dishes ($7.95–$9.50). Though today's Groupon is not valid for alcohol, guests can choose to purchase libations from the eatery’s bar at their normal prices, including a range of imported and domestic beer and 20+ wines.
Olives, tahini, feta cheese, and herbs accent Mediterranean Grill's recipes, lending their signature flavors to schawarmas, hummus, and fattoush salad. In addition to lamb shanks, seasoned roasted chicken, and other classic Mediterranean meats, the kitchen whips up pastas and grains that include a four-cheese penne rigate and vegetable curry served over a bed of rice. More than 20 wines from around the world color-coordinate with each dish, and Turkish coffee paired with desserts such as baklava top off each meal.
