A word from Mezetto
Sitting on the “nexus of the universe”, bridging the East Village and the Lower East Side. Mezetto is where you can come to simply enjoy great food, fun drinks and good company. Inspired from the word 'Meze' which refers to a selection of small dishes served in the Mediterranean as breakfast, lunch or even dinner. It is our take on tapas-style dinning, offering small plates meant to be shared amongst friends to create an social dining experience. We are focused on taking traditional flavors and cooking styles of the Mediterranean and bringing them to life with new age cooking techniques, creative combinations and bold presentations.
Mezetto is how we do Meze.

Diner Reviews
  • "Loved the laid back atmosphere at this restaurant. Food was good and the mimosas kept coming. I love that the music wasn't too loud or AC on too high. That's so common in NYC. You didn't feel pressured to finish ASAP and the staff was friendly! Had a great time."

  • "We enjoyed all aspects of our meal. We ate in courses; all were timed well - we didn't feel rushed. The food was fresh and creative, presented in pleasing ways. I took advantage of the unlimited mimosas (you have two hours). I let the staff surprise me with different mimosas. The day was also beautiful and the windows were all open, making us feel like we were dining outside. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. I look forward to returning to this restaurant."

  • "We had three pitchers of the white sangria - it went down almost a little too well! The spicy feta, lamb burger and branzino were all amazing. I would definitely go back."

  • "With lots of open windows on two walls, so it practically felt like we were outside. Convenient informal neighborhood spot with pleasant atmosphere, friendly service, and good food."

  • "The reality of the place didn't match up to the reviews, I'm sorry to say. A bit of a down-market place. Food was "just ok". It was priced higher than it should have been."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "I like coming to this place because it's perfectly placed by the 2nd Ave station, it's on a bustling corner for good people watching, the food is delicious, and bottomless sangria never hurt anybody!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The feeling of Mezetto was great and the food was excellent. I had the lamb burger with goat cheese and it was cooked perfectly. I would definitely recommend Mezetto to anyone who is looking for a quaint restaurant with a great location."

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "From the moment we sat down the mimosas were flowing. The pomegranate was by far my favorite. The spicy feta started was also to DIE for. Must must must must try. I had the chorizo shakshuka which was a perfect hangover cure and super filling. All of the entrees looking amazing though! I will definitely be going back."

  • "My friends and I were looking for a place to eat on a Monday night and we spotted Mezetto with their glasses of bottomless sangria. We went in, ordered the grilled octopus that was AMAZING, the ricotta croquettes, fries with harissa aoli and the gnocchi. Everything was delicious. I plan to go back again and again."

  • "We made a reservation for 9 people on a Sunday morning and could not have all been more pleased. It's immediately off the F train stop, which is wonderful, and they had alllll of their windows open so it was like sitting outside. The table was perfectly set up smack in the middle of the restaurant. We all did the unlimited mimosa special and the girl never once let our cup sit empty. A lot of people got grilled cheese and benedict. I got souvlaki, others got random apps and such--but no one was disappointed. Highly recommend to everyone!!!!!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Such a great find!! Loved everything I ordered and can't wait to go back for more. I made a last minute reservations and unlike many NYC restaurants, they ha plenty of openings. The best thing I ordered was definitely the brussel sprouts with figs. It was such a unique combination of food that was amazingly delicious. Definitely would recommend this hidden gem!"

  • "Came here for a bachelorette party and it was perfect. Food was great - we shared a bunch of small plates that came out perfectly timed. Ambiance was fun, open windows on a spring night. What really made it special was the service - outstanding! A perfect place for a bunch of ladies to celebrate in class without breaking the bank. (Please note: we were not the beaded tiara brigade bachelorette type, this probably would not work for that type of party)"

  • "With the bottomless sangria deal at dinner you can't go wrong! It is delicious! The 3 of us split the Brussel Sprouts & Figs, Falafel Buns, Kale & Cranberry Salad & Chicken Shawarma Shishlik. Everything was great, can't wait to come back for more. Our waitress was knowledgeable & helpful with recommendations. "

  • "I am not a fan of arugula, and chose the Margarita Pizza as my food choice and the listing on the menu did not include pesto or arugula. However, when it arrived it did have a mound of arugula and pesto. I did not want to eat the item, and when I pointed out to the manager he made no attempt to make amends for misrepresenting the product on the menu and was defensive. I will not eat there ever again."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I was looking for a fun place to do brunch on a weekday and Mezetto delivered! They had great flavored bottomless mimosas and awesome brunch choices. I was celebrating my birthday and they brought over dessert and a shot for my friend and I to celebrate with! The waiter was extremely helpful and we bonded over speaking Hebrew and going to Israel. They opened the windows so it was a perfect combination of sitting inside with the nice air breezing through. "

  • "We were a little put off at first by the location on the corner of E Houston and 1st Ave, but our doubts were quickly assuaged by the great service and unique food that we ate over a leaisurely brunch. The Sangria is also great, with the deserts a highlight as well."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "It took them more than 20 mins past our reservation time to sit us even when we arrived early. Very uncomfortable seats by the way. Took them forever to get us the food and people who got there later got their food first. Gotta give it to them though, the food was good"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I could say that my supper at mezetto restaurant was great! The food was delicious but the service was amazing! The waiters and bartender were really friendly and always checking up if everything was good. As a first supper in new york a can say it was the best! The location aswell was really good. I strongly recommend mezetto restaurant to anyone !!"

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed the Steak Keb dish I ordered and the service at Mezetto's. This is also a note about the Branzino dish that someone else at my table ate and absolutely loved - having shared many meals that included Branzino dishes together, we spent some time talking about it. The fish preparation was memorable - the skin was perfect... someone else should experience that dish."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Staff was attentive, restaurant was busy but not jammed, Food was served well, very tasty, and as we ordered it. Great beet salad, and branzino. Cocktails good enough that we ordered the next round as a carafe (their version of a mojito - fresh and easy!). I'd go back."

  • "The menu is interesting and the food outstanding. The owner does his best to accommodate everyone and is quite helpful. The place is wonderful and the service terrific. We have been there a half dozen times and have never been disappointed. On our last visit the restaurant was packed and quite noisy, but the service never faltered"

  • "Its rare you go to a restaurant, order 9 dishes to share between 4 people, and you love every single thing you get. We couldn't get over the taste of the food here, I highly recommend it! Get the steamed buns, pork pizzette, and ricotta croquets! "

  • "This was in my Huledet birthday month gifts. I went the Saturday before easy and it was busy afternoon in the LES. I could tell this is a college brunch spot. I had the ricotta balls they were tasty and my bestie had one of the many tasty omelets. The sangria was tasty but a little pricey. It wasn't bad I would definitely return. "

  • "Came here for bottomless brunch on a Sunday at 2 (hectic as you can imagine), had made a same day reservation through open table. We ended up having to wait 25 mins to be seated - but the wait staff was so friendly and they said we could start drinking while we wait and that our 2 hour limit for bottomless drinks wouldn't start until we were seated. That was very nice and made the wait a non-issue. The food was great, and everything was perfectly timed so you didn't feel rushed but were never left waiting. Speaking of that our glasses were never empty for more than maybe 10 seconds before someone walked by to refresh our mimosas. It was a fun time and we will be back."

  • "The food was WAY too salty. I was feeling the effects for 2 days afterwards! The staff were friendly and nice, but we were one of only 2 tables and I had to flag them down to get the bill because they were socializing in the back. Not the best service."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Had to wait almost an hour before being seated after having a confirmed reservation for over a month. The maître d' wasn't apologetic in the least, to the contrary he was the one giving us an attitude. The food was good, but would never go back there based on this experience."

  • "Mezetto was a great location for a dinner with friends. I went there for my birthday dinner this past weekend. The atmosphere was very energetic and had a definite party vibe. The food was delicious. From the spicy feta to the brussel sprouts (which I normally hate, but those were delectable). The service was wonderful, they were very imformative, friendly, and even a little flirty. The overall place is very small so it was a bit loud (not exactly good for a romantic dinner). But for a fun boisterous dinner out with friends it was perfect. If you are a group, make a reservation. Definitely reccommend this place!"

  • "Tasty, but Too expensive for the result. $13. for glass of house red, too much. Chicken Satay not spicy enough. Tagine with so so chorizo lacked interest. Nice brussel sprout appetizer. Service and staff very nice. Noise level high for normal conversation."

  • "I had a birthday dinner for 10 people and cannot rave enough about the food, the service, and the overall experience. The staff was beyond attentive and engaging and truly made our experience special. We chose the $45 per person prix-fixe menu option which included assorted appetizers, an entree, and assorted desserts. The amount of food we received was unbelievable. They brought out multiple plates of six different appetizers which were amazing - especially the ricotta croquettes and falafel buns. The entrees were also amazing - the portion sizes were great and the taste did not disappoint. The desserts were incredible too! Highly recommend this restaurant, especially for large groups. Thank you Mezetto!!"
