SOUTH FAYETTE, PA — Burns Scalo Real Estate is proud to announce that it has signed a lease with Mezeh Mediterranean Grill, an emerging fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant, at The Piazza in South Fayette, Burns Scalo’s restaurant and entertainment destination in “Boomtown.”

With a focus on bold, fresh Mediterranean flavors, guests can enjoy items such as bowls, flatbreads, and pita pockets loaded with toppings such as pickled beets and sundried tomato salad, premium proteins like shredded lamb and falafel, and not to mention the hand-made dips such as spicy hummus and the fan-favorite spicy feta dip.
