Healthy Mediterranean freshens restaurant roster at Dallas' Casa Linda Plaza

culturemap Dallas

Casa Linda Plaza, the favorite neighborhood shopping center at Buckner and Garland roads, will welcome an exciting new restaurant addition called Maya's Modern Mediterranean, opening in the former Alligator Cafe space in mid- to late-summer. Maya's is a fast-casual, family-friendly restaurant serving Middle Eastern food with a fresh, healthy approach. The menu includes hummus, falafel that's "air-baked" instead of fried, hand-rolled beef and chicken kebabs, salads, and pita made in-house. They'll serve beer and wine, and last but not least, a dessert called "chocolate hummus." The restaurant comes from Russell Birk, an experienced operator who worked for the Cozymel's chain (and still owns the Chicago location, one of the last survivors) as well as Woodlands Grill at Preston-Forest.
