    Industry News | May 19, 2010

    Roti Mediterranean Grill has opened its fifth location and first in Washington, D.C. and will continue expansion in the Chicago area. Roti also has four other eateries in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, including the Chicago Loop, Northbrook, and Vernon Hills. Based on the heart-healthy diet of the Mediterranean, Roti is quickly becoming the new trend for fast-casual dining.

    Co-Founder and CEO Bill Post says, “We are actively looking to build out the Chicago and Washington, D.C. markets. We have a grand ambition to be the country’s leading Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant, and we are on the path to do just that.”

    Roti Mediterranean Grill is a casual grill that serves food inspired by the tradition of Mediterranean cultures. Roti's vision is to bring Mediterranean food to the casual restaurant marketplace with an emphasis on healthy alternatives, freshness, and superior quality.

    Roti features fresh cut meats that are fire roasted in full display and traditional side dishes such as falafel, hummus, and baba ghannoush, all created by executive chef, Barry Brooks.

    “Mediterranean food is the oldest cuisine on the planet for a reason - it is honest, healthy, and delicious,” Brooks says.

    Roti offers dine-in and delivery services as well as an extensive catering menu. Given four forks by the Chicago Tribune, the best rating available, Roti is on the leading edge of one of the biggest trends in food today.

    Roti is also certified GREEN by The Green Restaurant Association, which is a national association that has close to 1,000 restaurants certified from coast to coast.
