MEDITERRANEAN BREEZE Greek & Italian Restaurant in Ashburn

     I’m thinking of moving to Ashburn, VA so I can be close to the Mediterranean Breeze restaurant
which features two of my favorite cuisines, Greek and Italian. What a menu! So many favorites that youdon’t know what to choose first.  And, you’ve got to meet the chef/owner, Terry Kasotakis and his friendly staff. Terry has owned the Mediterranean Breeze for the past 10 years. He came to the U.S. atthe age of 14, worked hard and finally had the opportunity to  open his own restaurant. He and his wifehave five children.  As you look over the menu you’ll find both Greek and Italian appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pizza,  entrees and desserts. A few of the house specials are  the Athena Plaka Combination with a wonderful sampling of Greek dishes plus Greek style lamb chops,  gyro, spinach pie and souvlaki platters and a Greek burger topped with tzatziki sauce and feta cheese. From the Italian selections, my favorite, veal  parmigiana plus pizzas, chicken cacciatore, spaghetti carbonara and a Milano special platter featuring a combination of homemade lasagna, fettucini Alfredo, stuffed shells and chicken Marsala.  I don’t want to forget their seafood items such as jumbo lump crab cakes, stuffed flounder, fried shrimp and blackened salmon. Mediterranean Breeze is a real find! Don’t Miss It.  The address is 20693 Ashburn Rd., Ashburn. For  more information and reservations, call 703-726-1045 and check the website at
