Among the shops and eateries in the Mobile Bay area town of Fairhope is a restaurant that is decidedly Mediterranean.

Sage Lebanese Cuisine is a flavorful oasis among the seafood and Southern cuisine outfits that already make Fairhope a foodie favorite. Co-owners and co-chefs Nader and Maritza El-Salibi bring their love for Lebanese food to their new home in Baldwin County.

The Meza Mixer appetizer givers diners a sampling of hummus, labneh, moussaka, grape leaves and falafel with pita bread. The Kebab Supreme entrée is as impressive as the name sounds, combining a variety of meats and vegetables.
