Mazah Mediterranean Returns With New Menu & New Look
When Mazah Mediterranean Eatery, the family owned and operated Mediterranean-themed restaurant located at 1439 Grandview Avenue, closed on April 24th, fans mourned what they thought would be the loss of their favorite kabobs, falafel, and stuffed grape leaves in the city.
But all is not lost. Mazah Mediterranean has reopened just a few doors down at 1453 Grandview Avenue, former site of W.G. Grinders, and with the relaunch comes new menu items, more seating space, and more local business crossovers.
For starters, owner Maggie Ailabouni and her team have created direct menus for those with food allergies and specific dietary needs. They have also expanded their wine and specialty cocktail list, using locally-produced OYO and Watershed spirits in the new drinks.
Guests will also notice that the new-and-improved Mazah features a greater variety of craft beers, both on draft and in bottles, and they showcase more local products, like Jeni’s Ice Cream and brews from the Columbus Brewing Company.
The biggest change diners will notice at Mazah Mediterranean, however, will be with the decor. There’s more space now, so there are more tables in the restaurant, which means shorter wait times, and they’re spread further apart to avoid the can-of-sardines-feel of the last location.
A new bar has also been built, and with the pop of the bright walls and the doors that open up onto the patio, it really feels like a whole new Mazah Mediterranean.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally show everyone what we’ve been working so hard upon,” shares Ailabouni. “It still has the aroma of a family run restaurant, but has been upgraded to give our customers a more classy, well-run dining experience.”
Mazah Mediterranean Eatery’s hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 11am – 3pm and 5pm – 10pm (closes 11pm on Friday) and Saturday, noon – 10pm. Mazah Mediterranean can also be enjoyed at the Nationwide, Chase Bank, and Batelle cafeterias during the week.
