BROOKFIELD — The Hummus & Pita Co., which has four locations in Manhattan, will be open in Brookfield early next year, with its first restaurant in Connecticut, according to the Fairfield County Business Journal.
The Hummus & Pita Co. is known for its Mediterranean cuisine dished up in a fast-casual setting.
The new restaurant will be located at 15 Federal Road, Brookfield, just over the Danbury border near Stew Leonard's.
It is in the same plaza as the Gym Source, taking over the spot previously occupied by GreenDrop, the News-Times said. The old Pizza Hut in the next building is currently under renovation to be a new Dunkin' Donuts.
The menu at the Hummus & Pita Co. includes a falafel pita, vegetarian pita, gyro pita, shawarma pita, chicken taboon pita and steak taboon pita. Meats are cooked in a traditional taboon oven.
The items can also be dished up on laffa bread, in a bowl or part of a platter. Sides include rice, baba ganoush, couscous, corn salad, stuffed grape leaves and tabuleh.
The first Hummus & Pita Co. opened in 2011 in Chelsea, with additional locations in Tribeca and Union Square and on 8th Avenue.( Click here for more information on the Hummus & Pita Co.)
Other locations are expected in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the News-Times said.
