Petra Cafe invokes the flavors surrounding the ancient Mediterranean metropolis—its namesake—that was unknown to the Western world for centuries. The chefs channel the Rose City’s cuisine with traditional Mediterranean ingredients, such as lamb, hummus, and grape leaves. The Syrian eggplant dip’s savory blend of onion, garlic, and tomatoes spreads over warm chunks of pita bread. Vegetarian options abound, including paninis stuffed with basil pesto, feta, and artichoke hearts, and hummus, which is great for coating vegetables or your kid sister’s hair. Diners can enjoy their food inside Petra Cafe or have the restaurant cater cuisine for private events.
