Mezze Lounge


Mezze recently opened a lovely first-floor lounge where jazz performers take the stage on Fridays and Saturdays to help soothe our souls.


Customers can order food from Mezze's main bistro below. A highlight of the porky menu is the Jamon Iberico De Bellota, the most highly prized cured ham from the semi-wild black pigs that guzzle acorns in southern Spain. Fabulously fatty, with a rich, intense flavor.


Pork rilette with grilled country bread & pickles. Finely shredded meat in a reasonably rustic recipe, though it had a slightly stinky aftertaste.


Pork stew with chorizo. A hearty, heartwarming portion that could feed two or three; seemed like something that a mom might lovingly cook to feed her family.


Char-grilled pork ribs marinated in sherry. Tender and tasty enough to recommend.


Beef-eaters can seek succor in the Mezze Burger, featuring 250 grams of freshly ground beef with 80 grams of pulled pork, slathered with BBQ whiskey sauce, mayo & red cabbage slaw on a panini bun with fat chips. A lusciously flavorsome whopper.


French-style beef tripe stew, aromatically slow-cooked in cider & white wine. Tripe might be an acquired taste, but here, this gelatinous delicacy is transformed into creamy comfort food.


Madiran "Torus" Brumont Sud-Ouest.
