A restaurant called Antioch Mediterranean Grill is coming to 47-31 Vernon Boulevard, the location previously occupied by Pop’s Deli.
While not much other information is available at this time, we put our foremost experts of etymology and linguistics on the case to form a profile of what you can expect.
The first clue, Antioch, was an ancient Greek city. Aha, Greek food! Oh wait, it’s ruins lie near the current city of Antakya, Turkey. Turkish food! No, no, not quite, because this portion of Turkey was formerly part of ancient Syria. Man this is tough!
Ok, let’s move on to clue #2: Mediterranean. That’s easy, it’s where I’ll be spending the rest of my summer vacation, split between St. Tropez and Marbella. More relevant, it’s a body of water. Unfortunately many different countries and continents lie along this body of water, which means it embodies many different types of cuisines. Unless there is an all-encompassing Mediterranean Diet? Highly unlikely, so I told our researchers not to go down that rabbit hole. But a member of our crack team did note that there was a very good possibility that every one of these countries had a McDonald’s in them. We worked this hypothesis from all angles, but eventually were undecided as to whether this was to be a burger place.
Our final clue, the word “grill,” is both a noun and a verb. Who knew? Not I, and I’ve been in the words business for over 9 years! Anyway, there’s a myriad of definitions for the word “grill,” and the crew was tired so we didn’t linger on it very long. Thus I’ll have to kick it back to you readers to parse the meaning of Antioch Mediterranean Grill?
