Mezeh Mediterranean Grill Coming To Downtown State College

A new restaurant will soon open up some new avenues within downtown State College’s food scene.

Mezeh Mediterranean Grill, a chain specializing in Mediterranean bowls, flatbread wraps, and pita pockets, plans on opening a location at 348 E. Calder Way underneath The Maxxen, formerly known as HERE State College. It’ll set up shop next door to El Jefe’s Taqueria, another restaurant that opened in the borough this year.

The restaurant’s menu includes invites guests to create their own wraps, bowls, and pita pockets by choosing greens and grains, proteins, and toppings, including chicken shawarma, hummus, lamb, and a slew of sauces. Mezeh also offers fresh-baked pita bread and a line of drinks that are proudly made without added sugar, GMOs, and other additives.

Although no opening date is set in stone, Mezeh’s website confirms the State College location is “coming soon.” The chain already operates 17 locations in Virginia, 10 locations in Maryland, and six locations in North Carolina. State College’s restaurant will be Mezeh’s second in Pennsylvania, joining one franchise located near the King of Prussia Mall.

According to its website, Mezeh is not yet hiring for its State College location.

A Mezeh spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday morning regarding the restaurant’s opening.
