Forbes Gyro Offers Savory Mediterranean Fare; Global Mondays at Cappy’s (Mon., 1/30/17)

1) Forbes Gyro mirrors the doner kebab restaurants found in major European cities like Dublin or Florence. Similar to these European establishments, Forbes Gyro offers Mediterranean food that is fast, inexpensive, and good. The place is also open late—until 2:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday late. It’s the perfect grub stop after a night at Hemingway’s or Bootleggers. Forbes Gyro is owned by Turkish people, who represent a growing cultural presence in the city. The restaurant offers several gyro specials. Forbes Gyro also offers lamb and chicken kebabs, pizza, hoagies, wraps, salads and what are arguably the best grape leaves in the ‘Burgh. Catering is available as well as delivery. Traditional American sides are served, too, so you can get fries with that falafel. 10:30 a.m.–11:45 p.m. Sunday–Thursday and 10:30 a.m.–2:30 a.m. Friday–Saturday. 3715 Forbes Ave., Oakland. (CM)

2) It’s Global Mondays at Cappy’s Cafe in Shadyside with imported bottled beers for only $3. While there, team up an import with a bowl of their scrumptious chili. 5431 Walnut St.
