Azmi graduated from USC's School of Business with a major in Banking and Finance.  While in college he worked for Andy's Deli and First Union Bank.  After graduation he started his own landscaping company with 15 years of success.

In 2003 Azmi traded in his shovel for a spatula and opened the Mediterranean Café with wife Beth Jebali.  She also has a degree in Business with over 30 years experience in Retail Sales, Management, Merchandising and as a Buyer for several area department stores.

Home for Azmi is a small town near Tel Aviv in Israel.  His love for cooking came from his mother who always made sure their house was full of fresh vegetables from the farm land.  Azmi also enjoys serving customers from his farm to their table.

The Mediterranean Café is in the heart of Lexington and a town favorite among locals and visitors.  Our dream of opening a restaurant was made possible by the support of our family and friends.  Thank you!
