Last fall, we had an urge to eat somewhere a little different than our normal repertoire of restaurants for a dinner. We LOVE the concept of small plates and LOVE hummus plates. So, Mezé Mediterráneo immediately appealed. However, we did not expect the large selection Mezé's Greek-influenced Mediterranean menu offered.

On our first visit, we enjoyed patio seating and took awhile to peruse the menu. Both Warm and Cold Tapas, Flatbreads, Shareable Entrees and Sides tempted us. We settled in for a platter of hummus and tzatziki to start. Absolutely delicious and perfect for noshing before the rest of our meal.

Mezé's tapas selection offers quite a few options that I would like to try including Roman style artichokes, spinach rolls and tiropitakia (feta cheese, leeks, herbs, egg roll wrap, honey and seasame seeds). For our initial adventure, I HAD to try the patatas bravas. I absolutely love patatas bravas and I enjoy exploring each restaurant's rendition. Mezé's is one of my favorite incarnations of patatas bravas. We have ordered them several times since our first visit!

We also ordered the chicken kabobs to share. The kabobs are marinated in yogurt which helps keep them deliciously tender. Once again, the kabobs developed into a quick favorite that we have already ordered several times. So yummy, Mezé!

My daughter enjoys ordering flatbreads and ordered the Margherita Flatbread with roasted tomatoes. Just yum! I love when flatbreads have freshly roasted tomatoes on top!

We did order curbside from Mezé. The menu was slightly different. My husband and I split a Chicken Kabob order which included a pita, tomatoes, onions and fried potatoes. Delicious as always!

As you can see, we already have our favorites at Mezé Mediterráneo! I look forward to dinning at the restaurant again and trying a few new plates. I find the flavors very fresh and wholesome. I have no doubt that we will find more favorites as we try new plates!
