Mezeh Mediterranean Grill To Open February 22

Update, February 11: Mezeh will now open on Wednesday, February 22, a Mezeh spokesperson said. Customers can receive a free bowl with the purchase of a drink from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Original Story: Hummus, tzatziki, and pita, oh my! Mediterranean food lovers can soon rejoice because Mezeh Mediterranean Grill is set to open in downtown State College on Friday, February 10, after originally planning to open in September.

Located at 348 E. Calder Way underneath The Maxxen, Mezeh will soon be serving up flatbread wraps, bowls, and pita pockets.

When ordering, you’ll first select a vegetable or rice base, followed by a protein from a handful of options, including falafel, chicken shawarma, and lamb kofta.

With as many as 30 toppings, you can add flavorful add-ons, including Turkish olives, hummus, Lebanese tabbouleh, Israeli couscous, feta, and sumac cucumbers. Sauces range from tahini to lemon garlic to s’hug.

If making decisions isn’t your thing, you can choose from a line of lifestyle bowls, like the “shawarma dream” or the “taste of mezeh,” too.

Mezeh also offers fresh-baked pita bread and a line of drinks that are made without added sugar, GMOs, and other additives.

Folks can register for the “grand opening event” which gifts you a free bowl with the purchase of a drink and a $10 credit toward a future purchase.

The chain operates 19 stores in Virginia, 13 in Maryland, and two outside of Philadelphia. The State College location joins seven other shops that are expected to open in other locations on the East coast.

Mezeh joins Carter’s Table, Lock Boutique, and Kokoro as the latest businesses to open in downtown State College.
