Pasha Mediterranean Grill
From the big rounds of flatbread served upon being seated (and replenished throughout the meal) to the lengthy mix-and-match menu, Pasha hits all the high notes for eastern Mediterranean plates, made for sharing. Lean shavings of lamb and beef are sliced from big cones of meat, and all the sides make the experience an authentic journey through the lands of spice, color, and texture. And plenty of vegetarian options are on the extensive menu: eggplant, hummus, falafel, and more. Filled with eager eaters of all stripes, from office workers to soldiers in fatigues to large families, this eatery makes you feel a bit as though you’ve spent time in a Turkish marketplace (the mostly open room gives you just a peek into the kitchen). Desserts are made at Pasha’s own bakery, and you won’t want to miss the honey, nuts, and general stickiness of it all.
