Mediterranean

About

In 2010, brothers Alon and Jacob Cohen took on the West Village with a restaurant named for their mother, Mémé Mediterranean. Having emigrated from Morocco to Israel at a young age with his family, chef/owner Jacob pulls inspiration and influence not only from his mother’s own Maghreb cooking, but also classical training received in both Israel and France. Jacob’s menu creates a culinary trip around the Mediterranean using fresh ingredients and spices shipped directly from his mother, who still lives in Israel.
After much success in the West Village, the duo is proud to open a second location of the same name in Hell's Kitchen. Keeping with tradition of great hospitality and good food, Méme provides a cozy atmosphere and flavorful dishes using Mémé Cohen’s own hand-ground paprika. Chef Jacob continues to impress with his culinary creativity and generosity.

As always the service, ambience and food are enjoyable with very few missteps. Enjoyed the lamb burger although there's not much to it. Just a lamb burger with a piece of goat cheese on a bun. That's it. Could use a sauce or mayo or aioli or something to give it some moisture.

We live in the neighborhood and have been here multiple times. We've had take-out when the pandemic was in full swing. This place has never disappointed us. Generous meal portions, strong drinks and very friendly service. Highly recommended !

Rose sangria, fried artichoke, ricotta gnocchi, laffa tacos, and grilled octopus were delicious. Laffa tacos were the best!! Ricotta gnocchi and octopus portions seemed a little small. Also, prices a little expensive, but food is so good! We sat inside and there were plexi glass barrier on both sides of our table (due to covid), which was nice. Staff was very friendly.

Finally indoor dining has reopened in NYC and just in time for Valentines Day! How lucky to live in a neighborhood where Meme was an option and to be able to have a wonderful "indoor" dining experience where the food, service and ambience were all in sync and perfectly executed. No complaints and will return again and again.

Great service...different menu from what used to be offered but the food was fresh and very tasty. The heat lamps are good but my feet were freezing by the time I left! Next time going there wearing Ugg’s!

Meme has become one of the neighborhood's most reliable spots for brunch during this pandemic. We have gone there for years for dinners, celebrations, etc., and the quality of the food is always first-rate. We appreciate the way they have adapted to the nearly impossible conditions they now operate under. We'll keep going!

As always you can depend on a well prepared and well presented meal. All very tasty with no complaints. Fantastic tapas combination platter! Lamb burger is also great. I only hope that during this uncertain time they remain open since it's one of the best restaurants in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. Will return again and again.

I love the food here and have always found the service to be terrific. This time, however, it was a bit slow. We asked several times if they could put on the overhead heat lamp, and several times we were told "shortly." After more than half an hour, we were told that they had no tanks for the lamps. We should have been told after the first time that we asked. I guess I will not go back during the fall/winter months.

The food was fresh and clean and extremely tasty. I just think that it may have been a couple of dollars over priced.

The service was excellent. All the service people were very nice and kept the table clean.

Great place for brunch. Food is delicious and service great. A friend of mine and I sat at a corner table for two hours, eating and sipping their delicious mint tea. They never asked us to leave, as unfortunately it happens in some restaurants. Highly recommended!
