ancient bounty

Named for an ancient city in a distant homeland, Petra Restaurant is Kal Darres’ culinary connection to Jordan. The Eastern Mediterranean region is as famous for hospitality as it is for piquant and delightful food. Both are available in abundance at Petra. Joining Owner Kal Darres is Executive Chef Liam Mathew…together they are the secret to the restaurant’s success. Chef Liam, an Erie native, started his career at the Aviation Country Club. Most recently, he was the Executive Chef at Firebird’s. Each dish created is fresh and authentic – because each dish is prepared from scratch using many organic, seasonal and natural foods. As a result, Petra can cater to guests that are on special diets such as gluten-free, low fat or vegan. The fully-stocked bar and reasonably priced, wine list provide the perfect accompaniment to your meal. There are 12 different wines by the glass! Start with Fatayer – puff pastry dough stuffed with cheeses or filled with filet mignon, onions & pistachios. Try the Mediterranean Chicken, strips of boneless chicken pan sautéed then finished with cream. And for the more adventurous, the Middle Eastern Platter has a little bit of everything – hummus, baba ganoush, fatoush, tabouli, ouzzi and cheese fatayer – a perfect introduction to this type of cuisine. Daily Specials are superb taking advantage of the seasons. The entire menu is low-fat and built on fresh ingredients…so that means you can go ahead and have dessert!
