On Tuesday the 12th of March in 2013, Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill in Columbia hosted an exclusive celebration for the grand opening of their first store in Maryland. It was an impressive Mediterranean party for the start of spring; Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill resides in a central hub location within the Dobbin Shopping Center of Columbia. Who know one 90 guest count restaurant could hold so much health and freshness in one building. Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill is a one stop shop for everything Mediterranean from garbanzo beans, falafel, hummus, pita and Greek salads.
This customer welcoming celebration took place from their opening to closing business hours. However, my tour took about one hour. Customers were greeted upon arrival by hospitality associates receiving fifteen Garbanzo dollars to order complimentary meal items which included entrée, drink and dessert. The hospitality was flowing from every corner of the building and servers were passing around sample chicken & steak kabobs and tea. There kabobs are said to be the best thing to happen to sticks since popsicles. The coolest part of it all was during the celebration my tour included access to the back kitchen. I saw firsthand the process of cleanliness and freshness from the sliced vegetables to the grilling of meat on the grill. They do offer dessert which included a fresh apple or baked chocolate chip cookie. Oh, did I mention they have freshly brewed teas flavored at pomegranate crisp & lemon grass green tea and classic ice black tea. Yes, the pomegranate crisp was my favorite.
At the end of my tour; I became a VIB club member that day and look forward to enjoying the perks of the membership. Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill is one of those types of eateries that can’t be totally described in words you have to experience it for yourself. I know you can’t wait to diversify your taste palate by visiting the new Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill in Columbia where healthy and fresh combine in harmony.
