A new Mediterranean restaurant is in the works in Shirlington. Medi is going in at 4037 Campbell Avenue.

According to the Village at Shirlington website, Medi says it “offers the vibrant tastes of Mediterranean food, with uniquely blended flavors, healthy ingredients, and great value.”

It also says, “At Medi, we want you to Meet, Eat, Drink, and Indulge – That’s our motto!”

Although no menu is formally listed yet, the restaurant’s description includes references to grilled meats and vegetables, Mediterranean sauces and dips and imported beverages. It mentions sandwiches, salads and rice bowls as entree options.

A sign in the window says the restaurant is looking to hire “freakin’ awesome people.” Medi’s Facebook page shows June as the targeted time for opening.

    “freakin’ awesome people.”

    Oh, dear God. Shades of Mad Rose.

  • DarkHeart

    The Pike could use some Medellin cuisine.

  • CW

    These places are by and large all the same.

    • Yogi

      All generalizations are false.

  • nom de guerre

    vibrant-adj. Pulsing or throbbing with energy or activity. I don’t think as food being described as vibrant. The use of the term vibrant is unsustainable.

    I read that it’s going to be a Chipotle-type thing, where you go down the line and build your sandwich, salad, bowl etc. We’ll see, though. The neighborhood desperately needs more counter-service type restaurants, so I am hopeful.
