Mediterranean Specials

Restaurant3503

The varied cuisines of the Mediterranean have developed over the millennia with all the cultures surrounding the Mediterranean Sea contributing. So unlike many other ethnic cuisines, Mediterranean cuisine is not the product of a specific ethnic group or culture. There is a vast amount of differences in the recipes of this geographic region.

The world’s earliest civilizations bordered the Mediterranean Sea and their development was boosted  by the rich soil and temperate climate that made agricultural production thrive.  As the point of intersection between Asia, Europe, and Africa, with major civilizations located in each area, the Mediterranean was geographically destined to become a major trading hub.

As societies meshed within the empire, culinary practices were adapted and conformed, resulting eventually in the adoption of the current culinary identifiers of Mediterranean cuisine by people throughout the region and the world.

Executive Chef Ignacio Uribe and Sous Chef Hugo Mejia have melded there ideas for Mediterranean cuisine during the Weekly Special's Menu which runs January 5 to 11, 2015 and dinner is served from 5 to 11pm every night.
