Mediterranean Kitchen is a small, unassuming Lebanese-Mediterranean restaurant that serves wonderfully spiced and intensely flavored dishes from the region, often inspired by old family recipes from Lebanon. They serve regional classics, tried and tested dishes even those not familiar with Mediterranean cuisine would recognize, such as falafel or moussaka. Falafel is ground chickpeas mixed with onions, garlic, parsley and spices, and moussaka is an eggplant casserole made with cauliflower, onions, tomatoes and garbanzo beans, served with feta cheese, garlic sauce, and fresh basil. The portions are huge, but the dishes are healthy and light. All dishes come with soup, garlic bread, and heavy Turkish coffee. Don’t skip dessert, as their baklawa is fabulous.
