BANKBRQ wvvw.AndyWeiser.com J.A. CHAPMAN C dining For outstanding kabobs and baklava as well as tabouli and scrumptious, hot pita bread, head out Richmond to Mary'z Mediterranean Cuisine Mediterranean Mary'z I LOVE GOOD MEDITERRANEAN food. So it was with great anticipation that I headed out Richmond to try out Mary'z Mediterranean. The location seemed familiar, and it finally dawned on me that this was the home of Sammy's Lebanese, before a tragic fire. I hoped it was a good sign that Mary'z owners were also Lebanese. The restaurant itself is like a small house, much like the old Sammy's. There's a porch out front, parking in the back, and the interior has an upscale feel, with maroon carpets and faux-marble tabletops. A split-level dining area creates intimacy, while providing plenty of seating. The menu has all the usual suspects and no real surprises. One lunch visit, I started out with a half order of tabouli ($2.75), which proved to be an ample portion, as are most of the half orders on the menu. The tabouli is tangy with lemon and has plenty of parsley. More bulgher wheat might add heartiness, but that's a small quibble for such a fresh, light treat. For a light meal, try one of the sandwiches, which are rolled up in the thin, delicious pita bread and wrapped with tin foil - perfect for take out. The lamb kabob sandwich ($4.25) is an excellent choice. The lamb was tender and succulent, with a hint of allspice. Lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and tahini fill out the sandwich, adding plenty of flavor. It's possible to make a meal from the appetizer selections. The fried kibbi ($0.95), filled with ground beef, pinenuts and almond slivers, are warm and filling. The falafel (3 for $1.95) was not the very best I've had, but the garlic sauce is addictive. Both the hummus ($2.85 for half serv- ing/$4.45 for whole) and baba gannouge ($2.75/$4.25) were strangely lacking in garlic and heavy on the lemon. The baba gannouge could benefit from a stronger eggplant flavor, but overall both are tasty and come with the delicious thin pita bread. The platters come with salad or vegetable and dip. The beef shwarma ($9.95) was more like a beef stew than the thinly sliced beef I'd expected. It was served on pita bread, which quickly became soggy. The fattouch salad on the side was large enough to be a meal, and refreshingly light, with cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce and parsley in a lemony dressing. Vegetarians will find plenty to eat at Mary'z, including a good selection of vegetable dishes, all available in half and whole servings. The eggplant ($2.45/$3.95) is the standout - garlicky, tangy and tender, it's a real find. Order a whole serving - half isn't enough. The cauliflower ($2.45/$3.95) is panfried until golden brown. It's sweet and tender, but could do with some seasoning. The potatoes 2.45/$3.95) are pan fired as well and loaded with garlic, which isn't mentioned on the menu, plus lemon and parsley. IT'S EASY TO NOSH YOUR WAY around the menu at Mary'z, but save room for dessert. The baklava ($1.25) is excellent and the servings are sizable. Both walnut and pistachio are available. Our waitress described the cream baklava ($1.45) as "baklava with cream", which wasn't at all what it turned out to be. Instead it was fried dough filled with a something akin to clotted cream, and served in a pool of rose syrup. It was delicious, but entirely different from what had been described. Service can be a problem at Mary'z, mostly because English is not the staff's first language and communication can be difficult. The food is prepared to order, which means it's fresh and delicious, but can also take awhile. Still, the staff is very friendly and aims to be as helpful as possible. Alcohol is not served at Mary'z, but hookahs are available. It wasn't clear if you could order a hookah for the table, and they're not on the menu, but patrons were puffing away each time I visited. No doubt interested parties would be able to partake. Mary'z offers very reasonably priced Mediterranean food in a pleasant atmosphere. With a convenient location on Richmond, plenty of parking, and good food, it's worth a visit. <^ Mary'z Mediterranean Cuisine 5825 Richmond 832-251-1955 Food: *•*•"•' Service: MMM Value: w w w w Scene: www r= Stay home and eat cereal ** = Well, if you really must WW w • Fine for all but the finicky W w W w -Worth more than a 20-minute drive W w W w w =As good as you'll find in this city
