NEW TAMPA — On Nov. 19, a new Mediterranean restaurant opened its first location in the Tampa Bay area. Paramount Lebanese Kitchen offers a farm-to-table, casual dining experience that bridges the gap between fast food and healthy food items.

The large menu includes salads, a variety of hummus, rice bowls, sandwiches, shawarma and flat-bread style dishes. Sandwiches include chicken shawarma and falafel, and salads include tabbouleh and fattoush.

Some of the main courses offered are lamb, BBQ beef and kafta skewers. Family platters and vegetarian options are available, and there are weekend specials and a lunch menu.
