There’s nothing quite as satisfying to hold — and then devour — as a pita sandwich. Med Kitchen, a Greek restaurant that encompasses flavors from throughout the Mediterranean, knows this desire and satiates it with fresh goods served daily for lunch and dinner. The Greek pitas at Med Kitchen come loaded with fillings of your choice — including rotisserie chicken and pork, lamb and beef gyro, grilled vegetables, and homemade falafel — and are happily dressed with any number of homemade toppings (tzatziki, hummus, baba ghanoush, spicy feta, even french fries…the list goes on). The same deliciousness is also available on a plate and any of the savory ingredients listed above can be added to one of their salads, making for an immensely customizable experience. Other specialties include spinach pie, Greek yogurt with honey and nuts, and homemade rice pudding. Sister to Hub’s Restaurant in Lincoln Square — a Chicago legend since 1976 — Med Kitchen, with its industrial aesthteic and original artwork, continues a legacy of tremendous taste.
