Using the TA ratings, we decided to try the Mediterranean Cafe, and were taken aback by the menu announcing Persian, Lebanese, Italian, French, and Spanish cuisine. In my experience, this usually portends a very disappointing meal, but nothing could be further from the truth. As we perused this rather daunting menu, our server came over and helped us through the choices, and then the owner-chef, perhaps noticing our furrowed brow came over with a complementary sampler with hummus, some Greek olives, feta cheese, and the Persian shirazi salad. A few tastes later, we knew we were in good hands.
I can't comment on the European cuisines as we stuck to the south side of the Mediterranean. The mint tea was delicious, and the lamb kabobs were tender, and cooked perfectly, with a wonderful spicing. One member of our party had the falafel plate and was very happy with their choice as well. The shirazi salad was new to us, and we all loved the blend of tartness and mintiness. A wonderful local restaurant which seems a cut above the chains elsewhere in town.
