The magical Aegean has been referenced throughout history as the 'pearl of the Mediterranean '. It is where the Greek islands meet the Turkish Coast . It's a picturesque area; rugged in its terrain yet rich in its flora and all surrounded by Turquoise waters. Food from this rich region has always relied on what nature has provided. This stretch of the Mediterranean has been and remains to be, the healthiest diet in the world. There is no special formula or elaborate recipe - it's just about simple ingredients, locally caught fish, the purest olive oil, fresh herbs and vegetables, farm raised meats and homemade breads, cheeses and yogurt. True peasant food created in local villages - the heart and soul of the cultures that are indigenous to the region.At Mandolin Aegean Bistro we dedicate ourselves to staying true to the same food philosophy by recreating dishes that are simple, rustic and authentic to the villages of Greece and Turkey . We use seasonal ingredients, local purveyors and growers and freshly caught fish of the day. The menu covers a great selection of vegetarian options and all of our food is made with the highest quality extra virgin Greek olive oil.
