Mediterraneo Tapas Restaurant

31 Jan

In 2005, in the heart of Ridgewood, Mediterraneo was created out of passion and desire to explore and share the exciting opportunities of the truly Mediterranean cooking, from the shores of Southern Europe to the coast of North Africa. It was the first of its kind and, a decade later is still the leader in this style of cuisine, transporting diners through a true culinary and cultural journey through the cobblestone backstreets of the ancient historical neighborhoods of the Mediterranean region, delivering Mediterranean gastronomic experiences beyond expectation. It’s the style, ingredients and flavoring that sets it apart from any other.

At Mediterraneo, we carefully and without compromise choose each ingredient for its authenticity, quality, and freshness. It is our passionate objective to discover the culinary stories, tastes, and joy offered throughout the Mediterranean region, and make them available to food connoisseurs and adventurists of Bergen County and beyond.

While we spend a great deal of time honoring and reconstructing traditional Mediterranean flavor combinations, we are also inspired by modern techniques and culinary creativity.

Our cooking is a collision of ideas, cultures, techniques and history.

“Food is capable of feeding far more than a rumbling stomach food is humanitarian: sharing it bridges cultures, making friends of strangers pleasantly surprised to learn how much common ground they ultimately share.”

Has your home Expired?

Facts about Expired Listings

Nearly 15% to 25% of all listings do not sell.

The market rejects them.

In other words, the market did not accept the Marketing Effort, the Price, the Condition, the Location, or a combination of these areas—perhaps all four of them!

The good thing is that you control two of these areas: Price and Condition.  We control one: Marketing Efforts.

A hundred dollar bill is a great metaphor: they all look good, but people will always choose the nice, clean, crisp one over a dirty wrinkled one. How does your house look to others?  This is the crucial important difference between Showing condition and Living condition.


Being overpriced is usually the reason a home did not sell, but condition will help determine what the market is willing to pay. Remember that YOU control price and condition. The wrong price attracts the wrong buyers. It creates a bad reputation for the house in the market place and makes properly priced homes look even better.  Would anyone intentionally put their home on the market to help sell the competition?


Nobody can do a thing about their location except to accent the positives and minimize the negatives.

This fall, West Bergen Mental Healthcare will once again host …A Fall Night at the picturesque Indian Trail Club in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. This elegant evening is one of Bergen County’s most memorable and popular events – blending together food, wine, music and flowers.

The evening’s festivities begin at 7:00 p.m. with a wide selection of hors d’oeuvres. Then, ten of the area’s finest restaurants and caterers will serve individual portions of their signature dish – enabling guests to experience a variety of cuisines. In addition to pairing wines for each entrée, a wine tasting will be on hand specifically selected by Chuck Russo, owner of Carlo Russo’s Wine and Spirit World of Ho-Ho-Kus.

Music for the evening is provided by the Modern Jazz Trio.

The grand finale of the evening will be a wonderful selection of desserts prepared by four unique pastry chefs.
