All-natural ingredients are preferable to their unidentifiable counterparts, which arrive to tables courtesy of flying saucers. Feast on this world's bounty with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of authentic eastern Mediterranean fare at Meze Grill.
Harnessing fresh ingredients and meats free from hormones and antibiotics, Meze Grill boasts a small but powerful menu of healthy eats. Custom-crafted meal excursions begin with freshly baked white or wheat pita bread, a bulgur wheat or rice platter, or a freshly chopped romaine-lettuce salad. Pile on energy for an upcoming synchronized-sitting contest with healthy portions of flame-broiled, all-natural chicken marinated in olive oil, garlic, oregano, and sumac ($8.04), falafel paired with parsley, cumin, and black pepper ($6.65), or slow-cooked, all-natural shredded leg of lamb braised with cinnamon and bay leaves ($9.19). Creations can be gussied up with finishing sauces and salad dressings such as hummus lime, and classic toppings such as cucumbers, feta cheese, and olives make each plate more authentically Mediterranean than a mint-condition, first-issue Batman comic smothered in chickpeas. Pair dishes with sides such as crushed-lentil soup ($4.13) and homemade hummus ($2.98), and finish off with a gooey piece of honey-packed baklava ($2.76).
Earth-friendly additions pack the interior of Meze's minimalist space, such as recycled barn wood and an energy-efficient air-conditioning system. Meze also practices conscientious recycling, which allows guests to partake in green efforts without repurposing an overgrown venus flytrap into a studio apartment.
