Alcazar Fresh Mediterranean Food, slated to open by April 2014, will offer the same award winning food as the well-known original Alcazar of Encino, Ca. With 13 plus years of experience they have moved on to a new endeavor, refreshing its identity as a Mediterranean fast food restaurant, where everything is fresh, fast and fine.
Since its first start in 2000, Alcazar has become Los Angeles’ top Mediterranean/Lebanese restaurant, earning both popular & critical acclaim for its high standards.
During its 13 year tenure, Alcazar has been featured twice in 2008 & 2009, by Pulitzer winning food critic Jonathan Gold’s L.A.’s 100 best & 30 best restaurants, & is the only Mediterranean/Lebanese Restaurant in the U.S. rated by MICHELIN in 2009, as well as ZAGAT in 2012 & 2013. Not to be forgotten, Alcazar’s Hummus was rated #1 in a 30 restaurant survey by the Los Angeles Times, in a Sept. 2006 issue.
Alcazar Fresh Mediterranean food will continue to define authentic Mediterranean/Lebanese specialties by combining fine dining qualities and providing Fresh fast food.
The menu will be basic (Hummus, Falafel, Shawarma, Kebabs, Salads, etc….) & simple enough where you can customize your own meal, whether it’s a plate, a salad or a wrap with our fresh baked pita or sajj bread. You can order for sit down, take out, or delivery. We also offer catering menu for groups, events, luncheons & parties…
What separates the Alcazar brand name from the competition is our commitment to not take any shortcuts in the food preparation process.
We do not use canned products; all food is prepared from scratch using fresh & high quality ingredients.
We use choice grade Beef & fresh chicken breast only.
We trim, cut & grind all our meat & chicken.
We only use freshly squeezed lemon juice & extra virgin Lebanese Koura olive oil in our salad dressings.
WE BAKE ALL OUR OWN BREAD BOTH PITA AND SAJJ FRESH ON THE SPOT!
Alcazar = Fresh, Fine, Fast ... no shortcuts
