Happy National Mom & Pop Business Owners Day❤️
What a perfect reason to explore family-owned establishments on St. Paul's iconic Grand Avenue (@grandavestpaul) just a 4-minute drive/12-minute walk from The Pitch! If you’re feeling Mediterranean food, you can’t beat Shish Mediterranean (@shishongrand). Owner Leo Judeh came to the U.S. to box in the 1996 Olympics and eventually found himself in St. Paul. He and his wife Beth then opened Shish in the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood, where Middle Eastern fare seemed to be missing. Dishes span locales and cultures throughout the Middle East and include only never-frozen meats from a local ranch. Stop in for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or the best Turkish coffee in the Twin Cities!Pictured: Shish Burger with fresh, seasoned ground beef, feta cheese, lettuce, tomato and hummus. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, too!
