Changes at Mare Mediterranean

Mare Mediterranean is owned and operated by longtime local restaurateur and native of Italy, Nino Cutraro, along with his business partner, Jay Feldman, chairman/CEO of Feldman Automotive. The Birmingham restaurant opened in November of ’21 and recently underwent renovations along with launching a new menu and changing the overall concept. “We rebranded,” said Curtraro. “We’re now more approachable and price-wise, we are competitive with any of the Birmingham restaurants. We want to be busy every night, not just a place you go for special occasions.” The interior has been updated with a modern décor including lightning, flooring, marble, and wood tables. Extensive menu renovations that focus on high quality choices at more affordable prices provide a casual vibe for guests. There’s also the new addition of a special brick pizza oven that is straight from Italy. Pizzas are crafted with handmade pizza dough and feature unique options like Ms. Margarita, salumi, giardino, bianca and lobster. There are several new pasta dishes on the menu, including rigatoni Bolognese, cannelloni, spring tagliolini, spaghetti pomodoro and spaghetti palomino. A few of the new main entries include seafood paella, chicken piccata, chicken marsala, veal chop Milanese, pork chop and vegetable paella. And there are no worries for fans of the original menu, as mainstay dishes such as linguine con vongole, lobster Athena, linguine pesto con Gamberi, whole live lobster, wagyu filet mignon, and many more, will remain on the menu. Mare Mediterranean now offers carry out and has also expanded their dining hours to six days a week, Tuesday-Sunday. A happy hour runs Tuesday-Sunday from 4:30-6:30 p.m., and Mare Mediterranean now hosts a weekend brunch both Saturdays and Sundays. 115 Willits Street, Birmingham
