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 The 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 holiday and tailgating party trays.
The local branch of a national establishment, The 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, a protein-heavy blend of scrambled eggs, bacon, italian sausage, cheddar, hash browns, and grilled onions ($6.50), or wake up early to catch the Morning Glory pita’s colorful combination of eggs, avocado, tomato, green peppers, onions, and hash browns ($6.25) before it seals itself closed with the passing sun. 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, a three-meat feast loaded with turkey, black forest ham, and roast beef ($7.15). 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–eight guests can quiet rumbling tummies with a small platter ($30), which flaunts a combination of five types of pita ideal for promoting culinary variety or doubling as legal pads. Ten pita sandwiches populate large platters ($60) for 10–15 diners, who can further fend off hunger pangs with cookies by the dozen ($4), one of three salads ($45), or complimentary plastic forks.
