The next frontier in fusion cuisine to hit the Financial District lunch scene will be on display at a place called Torshi MeXiterranean, and from the look of it the concept is basically the result of a "what if Chipotle and a gyro place had a baby" conversation. This could indeed be a winning formula, if an odd one, and Hoodline brings us a first look at the menu, which includes a la carte items like falafel tacos, gyros, and a mezze plate (concerningly it's misspelled "mezza") with an optional scoop of guacamole.

The customizable part of the menu lets guests pick a base tacos, burrito, wrap, bowl, or salad add a protein carne asada, pollo asada, beef & lamb gyro meat, shawerma, or falafel and then top it with your choice of vegetables, hummus, dolmas, guacamole, tabbouleh, Turkish slaw, or rice and beans.
Torshi MeXiterranean has moved into what was formerly a Bistro Burger location on Leidesdorff Alley, around the corner from 343 Sansome Street (near Sacramento).
The place ran into some "last-minute technical issues" that delayed its opening, according to Hoodline's tipster, and they were hoping to open today although if I know Yelpers, it must not have opened today, because none of them have gotten their Yelp firsties logged on the site yet.
But be on the lookout as the opening may be this week.
