Pita Jungle is a full-service restaurant with a menu that blends Middle Eastern classics, such as dolmades and baba ghanoush, with mainstream healthy and vegetarian fare that has a Mediterranean twist. What sets it apart is a creative vibe that attracts both families and millennials. Units are filled with local artwork in step with Pita Jungle’s tagline: “The art of eating healthy.” The chain, started in Arizona by three Arizona State University grads 20 years ago, has recently expanded into California.
