Mediterranean v. Middle Eastern

mialebven | Jun 7, 2007 01:44 AM

In several restaurant listing, some restaurants are divided between these two categories: Mediterranean and Middle Eastern.

My question is what is the difference? Oftentimes I see a restaurant serving hummus, falafel, etc. under Mediterranean whereas I normally would think of these as Middle Eastern dishes.
