When you are dri­ving along Michi­gan Avenue, Mediter­ranean Blue restau­rant can go unno­ticed among the vari­ety of restau­rants and retail­ers lin­ing the busy road. Set back on the cor­ner of Michi­gan Avenue and South Osce­ola Avenue, next to an insur­ance office, is a quaint and bright lit­tle estab­lish­ment. Approach­ing the build­ing you will notice the wrap around win­dow exte­rior just above a sea of cyan pan­els and a newly built front patio with big, shady umbrel­las. The inte­rior and exte­rior of the restau­rant are immac­u­late. Inside you are wel­comed by the friendly owner, Gail. She gave my guests and I a quick tour of the menu, avail­able items and the deli case. She also offered us tastes of the deli case items. I tried all the made fresh daily veg­e­tar­ian items in the deli case: tabouli, quinoa, Mediter­ranean pasta salad, braised cab­bage and black eyed pea salad.

All the sides and sal­ads were made with fresh herbs and ingre­di­ents & just the per­fect amount of sea­son­ing and spices

I ordered the falafel with tzatziki (cucum­ber yogurt sauce), a side of Mediter­ranean pasta salad, the Greek fries and baklava for dessert. The falafel cro­quettes were crispy on the out­side and very fla­vor­ful on the inside. My falafel was accom­pa­nied by a fresh warm pita, hearty slices of ripe tomato and red onion, crispy romaine let­tuce and creamy tzatziki sauce. The side I chose, Mediter­ranean pasta salad, was served cold with elbow mac­a­roni and full of fla­vor diced sun-dried toma­toes and gar­den fresh herbs.

The Greek fries were per­fectly hot and crispy. They were sea­soned with just the right amount of sea salt, olive oil and oregano. No condi­ments needed here!

Fin­ish­ing my deli­cious meal, my guest and I shared the baklava. This could pos­si­bly be the best baklava I’ve ever tasted in my life. The owner, Gail, men­tioned that the baklava was made fresh daily in the tra­di­tional Greek method by her 81 year old mother. The fresh­ness of the prod­uct def­i­nitely shined through. The fla­vors of cin­na­mon, honey and nuts lay­ered in har­mony with a light and flaky phyllo dough which was the per­fect end­ing to an already won­der­ful meal.

Mediter­ranean Blue is a suc­cess­ful restau­rant because of their com­mit­ment to cre­at­ing fresh prod­ucts every­day, using high qual­ity ingre­di­ents and their friendly and invit­ing atmos­phere. The menu caters to a vari­ety of patrons whether they are vegan, veg­e­tar­ian, health or bud­get conscious.
