Opening today: Holy land Mediterranean Grill

Today is the opening day for Holy land Mediterranean Grill, the latest restaurant to take over the oft-occupied, oft-vacated space at 217 E. Douglas. (Onyx Bistro was the most recent tenant.)

The restaurant features a menu of Mediterranean specials, such as falafel, kebabs and hummus, as well as some more exotic sounding dishes. (Quail platter, anyone?) You can view the full menu here.

The restaurant, which has been nicely redecorated inside, will feature indoor and outdoor seating and will offer hookah smoking outdoors in the evenings.

Ashraf Jaradat works at the new Holy land Mediterranean Grill.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Wednesdays, and the restaurant is hoping to attract an after-bar crowd with 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. hours Thursdays through Saturdays.
