Going Greek

Mediterrano on UrbanspoonIt’s official, the location for the fall wine exchange has been selected!  The fall wine exchange will be this up coming October at Mediterrano on Babcock Blvd in Millvale.  

Our Experience:  Last week Tastebud B, our new friend Grace and I decided to meet up to scope out Mediterrano as a possible location for our wine exchange.  I knew from the moment we walked into the restaurant that Mediterrano was going to fit the bill.   We were warmly greeted with friendly faces, always a good start.   The ambiance of the restaurant is very inviting and gives you a feeling of being in Greece.   And then, most importantly, the food!

Grace started off with the Elliniki Salata that had tomatos, cucumbers, peppers, caper berry, red onions, kalamata olives and feta cheese with garlic croutons.  It was mouth watering!   Just look at the picture below. Don’t you want to dive right into it?

As an appetizer, I ordered Dolmades (Grape leaves) stuffed with rice with beef.  I always like to splash a little lemon on mine.  These were excellent and came to the table nice and hot for all of us to share. I was surprised they were served hot, as I always have had them cold, but I’ve since come to find that they are meant to be served warm.

Tastebud B ordered a bowl of the Soup of the day.

The entrees came out pipping hot, looked great and tasted amazing!   I ordered the Mousaka:

which is layers of sauteed eggplant, zucchini and a bottom later of potato with a meat sauce.
TasteBudB went vegetarian and got the Domates Gemistes: Tomatoes stuffed with asparagus, feta and orzo with a touch of cinnamon, roasted red pepper sauce and served with a side of spinach.
Grace ordered a daily fish special of the Sinagrida (Red Snapper) dinner that was truely amazing. 
As you can see we had an amazing time and wonderful food.  We (The Pittsburgh Tastebuds) are so excited that Mediterrano has accepted to be our next location.  We are very excited to introduce to you this amazing restaurant and cuisine. 
Hope to see you all there!
