Mezzevino in Ann Arbor Michigan serves Mediterranean mezze.
My table is scattered with a selection of Mediterranean mezze displaying an abundance of bright colours and perfumed spice. There is Lebanese lamb served with tabouli, tzatziki and goat cheese, chicken gyros with cilantro mint herb dressing and warm chickpea salad, shrimp with paprika, garlic and cherry, whole roasted fish plaki, swordfish thalassa with lemon rosemary, and charred eggplant.
Each dish is made with attention to detail and respect for produce. “Everything we do, we try to stay very rooted as far as authenticity,” says executive corporate chef Brent Courson.
