Vine Mediterranean Cafe: Middle Eastern Fare at Its Best
ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) Vine Mediterranean Cafe: These days, more and more statistics are showing that the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest and most nutritious ways of eating in the world. And St. Louis is fortunate enough to have one of best Mediterranean Café’s around.
Vine Mediterranean Cafe and Market, opened as a half-restaurant, half-market 7 years ago along South Grand’s bustling commercial heart, is going stronger than ever. The market is now restricted to a single corner to increase its popular dining capacity.
Recently listed as one of the Top 10 Middle Eastern Restaurants in St Louis, the café specializes in Lebanese cuisine and other Middle Eastern fare, both of which fall under that diet plan. They also serve customers in a traditional Arabic setting with superb Arabic hospitality.
Known for being very authentic, customers rave that the beef and lamb shawarma slowly roasted on a vertical spit might possibly be the best in town. Other very popular dishes are the beef, lamb, chicken, shrimp kebabs, and the lamb chops with delightful, tart fattoush sauce. Every dish on their menu is halal. They also offer plenty of vegetarian and vegan selections, as well.
The smell of their freshly baked house pitas will entice your taste buds the minute you step inside. They’re baked fresh all day, every day and served hot at your table. With a light texture and flavor, they add a whole new dimension to your hummus, baba ghanoush or lebnah.
The Mediterranean Market has an extensive selection of products that you won’t be able to find at a regular grocery store. They pride themselves in being able to offer customers a full line of both customary and hard to find spices, rice, grains and nuts. They sell hookah, food, pastries, oils, and delicious entrees, and almost anything else you’d want to find at this “one-stop” shopping market.
Most enticing are the daily fresh baked breads and pastries from the bakery. All made in-house, every day, you’ll find a wide variety of sweets and other fresh baked goods. Their signature Chocolate Baklava is alone, worth your trip.
Whether you dine in, take out, or decide to use the convenient catering services, it’s always going to be a win-win situation.
