There are many perks about being a food blogger. But, if I had to choose, I'd have to say- that getting invited to incredible events, restaurant previews, and tastings would be numero uno.

Last night, I was sent to a restaurant preview party in my own neck of the woods: The Hummus & Pita Co. This isn't your typical "fast casual" Mediterranean, folks. Think an "assembly line," of sorts,a-la-Chipotle, where you build your own dish from the following delectable ingredients: handmade regular/whole wheat pita and laffa breads (laffa is a flatbread) baked fresh in the tandoori oven, in¬house taboon-roasted meats, falafel, original and flavored hummus varieties, bourekas (my personal favorite), gyro, shawarma. schnitzel, 23 different salads, soups. and handmade desserts! Additionally, there are 6 types of domestic and international (think Morocco, Greece, and Israel) beers available. Whew!


With all of these decisions, there's still one more that diners need to make: dine-in or take-out? Should one choose to stay put. they will certainly enjoy viewing the culinary acrobatics behind the glass enclosed open kitchen. Natural stone walls and eco-conscious design elements create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Oh, and did I mention that there's *free* Wifi?

And, Now... the fun part! Please enjoy my captioned photo collage, below:

At The Hummus & Pita Co. our philosophy is simple:

IF YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT,
SHOULDN'T YOU BE EATING
SOMETHING AMAZING?

That's why we bring you the freshest ingredients possible, time-tested recipes, and so many ways to enjoy the world's healthiest cuisine. So create your perfect meal and enjoy the
flavors of the Mediterranean. Try it, love it - and eat it for good.

I had a fantastically delicious evening at The Hummus & Pita Co. From the lovely space to the incredibly fresh, handmade food, I am confident that this single operation on 6th Avenue will soon become a multi-location franchise, As far as fast-casual Mediterranean goes, there's nothing on the landscape quite like it in terns of space, variety, ingredients, and a commitment to making and baking and roasting everything in-house/from scratch. I’m so thrilled to be able to tell you all, with enthusiasm, to get over to The Hummus & Pita Co. and experience this delicious concept for yourselves!

Until we eat again,

The Lunch Belle
