This month’s Foodies & Fellowship was this past Tuesday in the Ballantyne area at Zeitouni Grill. This mediterranean restaurant seems to be a hidden gem to people like, but not so much to many others due to all of the traffic they had that evening. It is not your average sit down restaurant, but is very authentic and a lot of patrons ordered to go.
Here are some of the reviews from attendees:
"When I first arrived to Zeitouni Grill it looked like a corner pizza shop which I would easily of easily overlooked. The food however was good. I enjoyed the Zaatar which I had for the first time ever and the $27 bottle of Lebanon wine which tasted even better if you drank water after. If you wanted to try mediterranean food this place would be a great start."
"Definitely a place to try mediterranean food even if it is just getting all appetizers and sharing with friends. The staff were very helpful."
"The Lebanese red wine was a blend that was pretty good, I guess it was worth the $27 for the experience and the hummus was tasty."
"The restaurant had a mediterranean feel with a twist. The staff was friendly and explained the menu if you didn't know what something was.The food was delicious and authentic. I thought it was a little pricey for what we got but not too bad. Overall I will visit the restaurant again."
"It was my first time trying this cuisine and the falafel, zaatar and grape leaves were yummy."
