It looks like the answer to this question is a big YES. I was driving down Western on Saturday when I saw this new place. I love it because I mean we are always good with new places in Amarillo.

What is This New Restaurant You Speak of?

It being a Mediterranean Restaurant seems intriguing. So if you have not driven by yet to see the new place it is located at 2110 S Western. Basically right next to the Waffle House. The name is Cedars Mediterranean Cuisine.

You know the location I am talking about. At one time it was the location of Big Brother Big Sisters of the Texas Panhandle. Now it is going to try its hand as a restaurant. They are even hiring now.

When Will They Open?

It doesn't look like they are too far off. With all of the banner hanging saying they will Open Soon. They have two of those. They also have one letting us know that they are now hiring....this banner has a phone number.

So once they get people hired then they will start the process of training the staff. They will need to have a kitchen staff ready to go to make all the delicious food. Oh and of course the front of house staff to serve us.

They are going to offer both dine in and take out. Oh, and how about a menu?

What Exactly is a Mediterranean Restaurant?

When I look on Google Maps the only other Mediterranean Restaurant in our area seems to be Olive Garden. So this is a fair question.

According to their website:

Authentic & Delicious Mediterranean Cuisine!

We've brought the traditional flavors of the Mediterranean, here to Amarillo, TX for all to enjoy. We make all of the authentic dishes people love, and add our own unique twist to give you a taste experience unlike any you've had before. So come in and try our succulent dishes.

So hold tight we have a new place to check out here in Amarillo soon. Let me know what you think.
