Fresh and tasty: 15 mighty independent Mediterranean restaurants to delight the palate

by Carrie Bradon | Jan. 29, 2018, 1:00am |

When it comes to richness in cuisines, there are few that are as flavorful as Mediterranean food. 

Honey-drenched filo dough, meat and sauce-filled pita bread, and thick-yet-creamy hummus all come together to create a delightful meal. Surprisingly, the foods that we consider to be Greek in origin may actually be Middle Eastern in descent, but luckily that is what we have the category of "Mediterranean food" for.

Whether you have tried baked feta, make your own baklava at home, or are simply in the mood to try a new cuisine, Mediterranean dishes will not disappoint. So if you're ready to have one of the most savory meals of your life, then read on. 

Here are 15 mighty independent Mediterranean restaurants in Denver ready to wow your taste buds.
