Mediterranean pop-up to take over Arcadia during holiday months.

November 22, 2019

Starting November 22, you can head over to Arcadia (100 Washington in Michigan City, Indiana) and enjoy a Mediterranean meal right along the waterfront.

The pop up, created by well known restauranteur, Moe Mroueh, will feature many dishes from his popular Sahara restaurant, which was located on Franklin Street several years back. Moe recently helped open Chickpea Fresh Mediterranean, a counter style Mediterranean cafe in downtown Michigan City.

“Even with Chickpea, people are missing my Sahara menu and vibe”, said Mroueh, “this will be more of a complete dinner experience.”

Mroueh trains the staff to prepare for the opening.

At the Sahara pop-up, guests will be able to order off a full menu. There will be table service as well as a full bar. Nothing has changed inside the building, which has always had beautiful decor and a superb view.

All of your favorites from Sahara will be back!

But don’t wait too long to try it out. The pop-up is slated to be here through the holidays, perhaps a little longer. (dinner only). You can find more information in their facebook pop-up event, right here.

Sahara Pop-Up is located at 100 Washington in Michigan City. It will be open from 4-10pm Tuesday-Saturday. In addition, be sure to head over for the Dig the Dunes beer & wine lovers holiday bazaar, which takes place on December 14 from 2-5pm.
