After its long awaited arrival, Committee has finally opened on Boston’s Fan Pier in the Seaport District. Why has it been so anticipated? Because, simply stated, there is nothing quite like it here. The restaurant features Greek/Mediterranean small plates brought to you by owner George Aboujaoude. Think olive salad, grape leaves and souvlaki with a menu created by renowned Greek Chef Diane Kochilas and Chef de Cuisine Geoff Lukas.

Committee’s Mediterranean menu gets its inspiration with flavors from Greece, Lebanon, Turkey and North Africa. With the popular concept of sharing, the restaurant features small plates with a focus on seafood, vegetables, meats and grains cooked with olive oil, lemon and herbs. The weekend brunch menu here features their signature Greek Yogurt Pancakes, with seasonal toppings and Baklava Oatmeal with rolled oats, toasted walnuts, cinnamon-allspice, clove, Kalamata figs and Greek honey.
