On May 16, Lake Nona gained a new restaurant: The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill, an award-winning Mediterranean fast-casual concept. This is the third restaurant in the Orlando area of its kind.
Fitting with The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill’s mission to help “Live Your Life Deliciously,” the menu includes chef-inspired, homegrown recipes and delicious flavors. Every item on the menu is prepared in-house with fresh ingredients, providing guests with the opportunity to try traditional flavors from recipes passed down among generations.
Guests can select from several items such as the fan-favorite traditional gyro as well as lamb, steak and chicken souvlaki platters. Visitors can also enjoy the flavors of four signature house-made dips, featuring hummus, tzatziki, melitzanosalata (eggplant dip) and tirokafteri (spicy roasted red pepper) as well as fresh feta fries. The menu includes various customizable dinner options such as a classic Greek salad with choice of gyro meat, chicken souvlaki, salmon or other protein choices. Guests can also indulge in desserts such as baklava ice cream and rice pudding.
The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is part of the United Franchise Group family of affiliated franchise brands and consultants. Franchisee Kevin Carmean, a local businessman and entrepreneur who owns The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill locations in Hamlin and downtown Orlando, intends to continue expanding throughout Central Florida to meet increasing demands for fresh, healthy dining options.
“Lake Nona is an amazing community that is growing rapidly, making it the perfect home for The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill,” said Carmean. “We love providing delicious food and fantastic service and are excited to further expand our reach in Central Florida.”
