THE NEOMONDE MEDITERRANEAN STORY

When the Saleh family immigrated to the United States in the 1970s to escape civil war and to pursue educational opportunities, they brought with them their passion for bread and, most importantly, their mother’s secret recipes. With help from an uncle, a converted pizza oven, and rented space in a Raleigh strip mall, four brothers – and their mother, Cecilia – opened Neomonde Baking Company in 1977. They decided to honor their new country by naming the business Neomonde, or “New World.” Their goal was to make wonderful, handmade bread just like their mother’s.

Starting with just a few types of bread, Neomonde began to gain discerning wholesale customers like The Irregardless Cafe and Harmony Farms. As the Raleigh area grew, so did Neomonde’s customer list and product offerings. In the early 1980s, they moved from the small storefront space to their own building on Beryl Road.

In 1989, the Saleh brothers expanded Neomonde in another positive direction by opening the restaurant portion of the business. All their menu items were prepared each day by hand from family recipes using only authentic ingredients, most of it made by Cecilia herself. At first, their food was only available for take-out, but eventually the brothers added a dining area and patio seating to keep up with their ever-expanding popularity of loyal, healthy-minded customers. Regulars began to ask where they could shop for their own healthy ingredients to use at home. To answer this ever-growing demand from their restaurant friends, Neomonde launched a small Mediterranean grocery where customers could purchase all the ingredients and spices to prepare healthy dishes in their own kitchens.

There is something to be said of the smiles you get from the friendly team here, that I have grown to consider more like family than my neighborhood restaurant staff. You will be happy if you visited once...you will be happier each time you came. This is a weekly stop for my family and I, and I love the outdoor sitting area where my daughter colors and I can enjoy the tea and healthy snacks. There is a reason they have enjoyed success, and I recommend this location as the experience will be a warm and pleasant one. Enjoy...

The food was delicious. Had the lamb kabob, fall best salad and tabouli. Lamb was moist and the salads were very flavorful and fresh. Will be coming back next time I'm in the area.

Broad selection of Mediterranean dishes. A favorite is ordering the three sides sampler. Pricing is reasonable and service is quick and friendly. The dining room offers spaces for large groups and quiet seating. Usually during lunch, the place is very crowded.

Awesome food, great dessert. The cheesecake is incredible and the have a great selection of other desserts to try. I usually get the kabobs which are already cooked just right and are very flavorful. You can't go wrong eating here

I really like the selection at Neomonde. To me, the food tastes more authentic than some of the other Mediterranean chain restaurants in the area. We’ve ordered this for take out when out-of-town family were staying with us and there was something for everyone in our group. That saying a lot considering our family includes a diabetic, someone with lactose intolerance, and some run-of-the-mill plain-ole picky eaters!

First time ordering for take out for me and my husband, and it was just delicious! We both had the kebabs plate, which includes any 2 sides, what a great deal 🙂 both my husband and I would’ve given this place a 5 stars though if the kebabs of steak and chicken weren’t so dry. But I love the healthy options so thank you for being 3 min from us!

Ducked in for a quick bite at lunch with a coworker. Loved it so much, I came back again a couple days later to enjoy a more relaxed experience. Both times the service was friendly and fast. The food was... well... what brought me back- in a word: great!
