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 to Pita Pit. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of stuffed pitas and Mediterranean fare.
- For $20, you get $40 worth of catering.
The local branch of a national establishment, Pita Pit charms patrons’ palates with a menu of more than 30 stuffed pita sandwiches built for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Diners can lead mandibles through morning exercises with the Meat the Day pita ($6.50), a protein-heavy blend of scrambled eggs, bacon, italian sausage, cheddar, hash browns, and grilled onions, or wake up early to catch the Morning Glory pita’s colorful combination of eggs, avocado, tomato, green peppers, onions, and hash browns before it seals itself closed with the passing sun ($6.25). Lunch and dinner lead eaters down divergent paths on the culinary map, veering taste buds toward classic Mediterranean tastes or innovative combinations such as the Dagwood club ($7.15), a three-meat feast loaded with turkey, black-forest ham, and roast beef. A chopped spicy-black-bean patty offers a tasteful twist on a typical veggie burger ($6.95), and a pita packed with creamy feta provides a spin on the typical grilled cheese or a pants pocket filled with melted blue-cheese crumbles.
Alternatively, holiday fetes and tailgating soirees reach new gastronomic heights with pita platters. Five to eight guests can quiet rumbling tummies with a small platter ($30), which displays a combination of five types of pita that promote culinary variety or double as legal pads. Ten pita options fill large platters ($60), which feed 10–15 diners who can further stock stomachs with cookies by the dozen ($4), one of three salads ($45), or the included plastic flatware.
The Pita Pit
In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of The Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location customers can sample thin, Lebanese-style pitas that 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 its bread, meats, and post-meal toothpicks and offering a selection of healthy sandwiches, which dining companions can wash down with fruit smoothies.
