Cafe Phoenicia offers Mediterranean ambience, menu

By Howard Arceneaux
Zachary Business
When John Mekari and partner Menam Abdalla decided to open Cafe Phoenicia in Zachary, they wanted to establish more than a restaurant.

They sought to create a mood, one that reflected the entire Mediterranean region, a large geographic area rich in history and culture. Every aspect of the restaurant reflects that attention to detail, from the colorful scenes of ancient Phoenicia that decorate the walls to the menu offerings of authentic food recipes of the Middle East and Southern Europe.

Indeed, what they produced is an artistic reflection of the Mediterranean as unique as the dishes typical of the region. Since Cafe Phoenicia opened on Valentine's Day in 2003 at 5647 Main Street, Suite A, diners have been treated to the classic Mediterranean mood that Mekari and Abdalla envisioned.

Cafe Phoenicia, in Zachary, takes diners on a taste treat to the eastern Mediterranean. The foods of Greece, Lebanon and Egypt are featured, along with a nod to Turkey and Italy.

Situated in a shopping center on Main St. about a half-mile from La. 19, the restaurant's decor reminded us of a taverna we once visited on a walk to the Acropolis in Athens. Wall murals capture scenes of the Mediterranean while a small fountain and feathery green plants lend a courtyard feel to the cafe.
