The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world’s most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious falafel and grape leaves growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mediterranean fare at Borage Grill in Conyers.
The chefs at Borage Grill craft authentic Mediterranean classics using homemade sauces and fresh ingredients to sate the appetites of meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. Break in bibs with dishes such as falafel ($6.95), beef chappali kebabs ($6.95), and succulent seared lamb chops garbed in a rosemary-herb marinade ($7.95). Diners looking for lighter fare can dig into salads and wraps ($6.95–$7.95) or dive into ocean-dwelling delicacies, including calamari ($5.95) and coconut shrimp ($5.95 starter, $7.95 platter). Sidekick suppers with add-ons, such as stuffed grape leaves ($3.95), and a smattering of hot and cold drinks including coffee ($2.45) and lassi, a refreshingly chilly yogurt-based drink ($2.45).
Borage Grill’s bold food is complemented by its cozy dining room, which is awash in warm tones and the sounds of recorded live concerts and grandmothers quietly reading storybooks.
Just like Western language, Western philosophy, and Western-style Zeus’s Caboose Lightnin’ Fast Marinade, democracy, a portmanteau of demos, meaning “of the people,” and kratos, meaning “at the people,” was invented by the ancient Greeks.
