This eatery beckons with a stone-walled rustic atmosphere and service befitting much pricier joints. Belly dancers and Middle Eastern musicians add weekend bounce. Even more uplifting is the chef’s instinct for Greek standards and Mediterranean classics. Lemony stuffed squid oozes with herbed feta; lamb kebabs flaunt hunks of deftly grilled meat; and garlic-tossed seafood pasta is studded with shrimp, squid, clams and salmon, all cooked to tender perfection.
Mezzo-mezzo might mean “half and half,” but this
place gets the whole Hellenic taverna thing right.
