In 1977, military scientists invented pita pockets as a means of preventing humans from devouring pants pockets. Curb your pants-eating proclivities with today's Groupon. For $35, you'll get a catering platter for 8–12 people (up to a $70 value) at The Pita Pit in Brookline. The made-to-order package includes approximately 20 mini pitas (4" in length) and comes packed with your choice of toppings (lettuce, sprouts, olives, avocado, etc.).
Try the American platter, a mash-up of tried-and-true classics including chicken Caesar, turkey, roast beef, ham, and buffalo chicken. Go Greek with a smattering of Mediterranean tastes such as feta, hummus, and falafel, or try a veggie-only plate. View a complete menu here. The Pita Pit is open until midnight Sunday through Thursday and until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Orders must be placed at least 48 hours in advance. Feed roller-skating coronet quartets, Boy Scout troupes, or a backyard full of newly hatched songbirds and formerly hibernating critters.
This Groupon is good for carryout or delivery to the Boston metro area and suburbs. The $5 delivery fee is not included; call ahead to verify that your location falls within the delivery area.
The Boston Phoenix says:
- ... a refreshing take on the average sandwich shop that trades Hellmann’s and pickles for hummus and pitas...the Pita Pit takes its “fresh thinking, healthy eating” motto seriously. On the vegetarian-friendly menu, you’ll find more than 25 types of pitas, most served hot off the griddle by the baby-faced staff...The next time you’re in Brookline and you’ve got a hankering for a taste of the Mediterranean, make a Pit stop. Just don’t forget to bring your appetite. – Jeremy Sauer
Yelpers give the Brookline Pita Pit four stars:
Pita Pit Boston
In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location, thin, Lebanese-style pitas encircle lean, grilled meats and fresh veggies. Sandwich selections span the spectrum from gyro meat and falafel to turkey and prime rib. The staff empowers customers to make healthy choices by displaying nutrition information for each bread, meat, and post-meal toothpick and corralling a selection of healthy sandwiches, which dining companions can wash down with fruit smoothies.
