TAMPA, FL (Nov. 11, 2014) – Kurdi’s Fresh Mediterranean Grill has an updated look! With a new menu, a new chef and the addition of a bar with craft and local beers on draft; Kurdi’s is bringing the rich and extensive flavors of the Mediterranean to downtown Tampa with the freshest ingredients.
Chef/Owner, Heveen Kurdi, has collaborated with Chef Fred Behner to assist in broadening the scope of Kurdi’s menu. With Chef Kurdi’s knowledge of Middle Eastern cuisine and Chef Behner’s extensive background in Mediterranean fare, this partnership has created a menu that is sure to please.
“We adjusted the menu to showcase cuisine representing the entire Mediterranean,” said Chef Behner. “Most places pick a specific country and stick with it; however, we have decided to bring the whole Mediterranean rim to one place. This provides the opportunity to add variety to the menu regularly and add unique daily and weekly specials, based upon the freshest food available. We’ve added fresh seafood, Moroccan spiced lamb and scallops, braised short ribs and a variety of dishes spanning the entire Mediterranean. We really look forward to starting our 6-course craft beer or wine dinners, as well as a small tasting menu.”
Chef Behner states he is most proud of the freshness of the entire menu and the bold flavors enhancing each dish. “We do not have a walk-in refrigerator or freezers. Therefore, our ingredients are delivered fresh each day and served at its peak of flavor,” explained Chef Behner. “Our new menu encompasses the entire Mediterranean, allowing us to incorporate so much more.”
Saturday, November 15, Kurdi’s will be celebrating their Grand Re-Launch beginning at 5pm. A tasting of the new menu items will start at 6pm. Additionally, patrons will enjoy live entertainment and draft beer specials, as well as a craft beer and wine tasting. Kurdi’s is excited to introduce their new bar featuring craft beers on tap, and will be offering $2 off drafts during the event.
Guests will receive a voucher to stay for dinner and receive 15 percent off their meal beginning at 8pm. Reservations are encouraged for dinner seating. Kurdi’s Fresh Mediterranean Grill is located at the corner of Polk and Tampa streets, on the bottom floor of the SkyPoint condo building in downtown Tampa.
