New in Stamford - Myrna's Mediterranean

Myrna's Mediterranean has opened in Stamford, on Route 1 (866 East Main), on the East side of town near the railroad bridge.

I've tried a number things:

o The falafel sandwich was good, wrapped in a fresh pita-like wrap, with tahini, vegetables, etc. Better than average, I think. They put thinly sliced pickles in as well, which took a few bites to get used to, but that I now prefer.

o The shish kebab sandwich, like above but with lots of good marinated lamb chunks, also good.

o Kibbe, almond-shaped beef patties, were very good, with interesting spice.

o Mediterranean sausage, little lamb sausages in a lemon butter broth with clove and sumac spice. The best thing we tried there. The kids ate three portions.

o Baba ghannouj, silky and very tasty. My only complaint here was the packaged pita that came with it, instead of the warm wraps that came with the others.

o Very good baklava, in about 10 varieties.

You can eat in, there are maybe half a dozen tables with table service. Also has pizza and some euro/western entrees like shrimp scampi. Very casual. Prices $5 or $6 for appetizers, $10 or so for entrees.

All in all not bad, a good addition to town.
