Tabbuli Lunch Special – Mezze Box Lunch

Choose between three delicious well balanced boxed lunches for the low price of $8.99. Your first option includes a classic Kabob (gyro, chicken, or falafel) served with basmati rice, grilled vegetables, and tahini sauce. For the days you are craving a robust salad, opt for the Mezze Mix. This refreshing salad has it all. Sautéed chickpeas, cucumber, tomato, tabbuli salad, romaine, humus, tahini, Sriracha, and Charleston Hospitality Group’s own Whisk organic vinaigrette is sure to make your taste buds happy. If it is a sandwich or pita option you would rather have, Tabbuli does not disappoint with the Stuffed Pita. This grilled pita is stuffed with feta cheese, provolone, and tabbuli salad then served with a side of tzatziki sauce and Jerusalem salad.

No matter which of the three selections you pick, a Mezze Boxed Lunch from either one of the two Tabbuli locations is sure to give you a great meal in time for you to head back to the office. Take some time from your lunch hour to visit Tabbuli downtown today at 6 N Market Street or stop in the West Ashley location at 2026 Savannah Highway.

LISA SHELDON NAMED EXECUTIVE CHEF OF TABBULI

Executive Chef Lisa SheldonLisa Sheldon has been named executive chef of Tabbuli, a Mediterranean eatery and hookah lounge with locations on Market Street in downtown Charleston and Savannah Highway in West Ashley. Chef Lisa brings more than two decades of experience to Tabbuli, recently relocating from the New York area.

“We are delighted to welcome Chef Lisa to the Charleston Hospitality Group family of restaurants,” said Founder and CEO Sam Mustafa. “Utilizing my family’s beloved recipes, she has turned our vision of what Tabbuli’s culinary experience should be into a reality.”

After working in the Chautauqua area of New York for 13 years, Chef Lisa and her husband Keith, also a chef, decided to trade snow for a southern lifestyle and settled in Charleston. While enjoying breakfast at Toast, one of Tabbuli’s sister restaurants, they struck up a conversation with a server who led them to Sam Mustafa. Chef Lisa’s husband now helms the kitchen at Eli’s Table, also part of the restaurant group, which offers a creative twist on Lowcountry and Continental classics.

“I’m thrilled to join an outstanding team and bring my passion to the Tabbuli kitchen downtown and in the up-and-coming neighborhood of West Ashley,” shares Chef Lisa. “By sticking to fresh, locally sourced ingredients, we’ve been able to craft a dynamic menu that is sure to please the most discerning of palates in fun, casual atmosphere.”

Although Mediterranean cuisine has never been a focus of Chef Lisa’s background, it was a Mediterranean cruise that first led her to the culinary arts. A native of Pittsburgh, she had hopes of becoming a pharmacist, nearly accepting a softball scholarship to a Division I college. However, following a family cruise, Lisa’s eyes and palate were opened in a life-changing way. She eventually enrolled at Johnson & Wales in Providence, R.I. where she was a stand out on its Division III softball team.

After graduating from Johnson & Wales with a degree in baking & pastry arts, Chef Lisa began her career at the Sheraton Minneapolis Metrodome, where she was offered an internship. She later transferred to the Athenaeum Hotel in Chautauqua, New York, where she worked for 11 years, beginning as a pastry chef before being promoted to executive chef. Chef Lisa later served as executive chef for Chautauqua Suites before heading up the kitchen at Andriaccio’s Italian Restaurant, a landmark in Chautauqua.
