Fans of Mediterranean House, get it while you can

By Michele Laudig

It had been awhile since I'd been into Mediterranean House -- the cozy eatery next door to Richardson's, on Bethany Home at 16th Street -- so I stopped by for some falafel the other day. Turns out, the place is closing, according to the two waitresses who were chatting me up on a slow afternoon.

Yep, they've been in business for 19 years, and their lease isn't being renewed. Rather than move, they've decided to just close up shop. October 31 will be the last day.

So whether you're a regular or you've just had Mediterranean House on your to-do list for a long time, you'd better get your tabouli fix -- the clock is ticking . . .
