Meze Writes: Mezè Restaurant opened in June 2001 in the heart of Adams Morgan and immediately received critical acclaim for its delicious cuisine, warm ambiance, and friendly service. All of our food, including our special Turkish bread, is made from scratch by our chef-owner Harun Bolukbasi, from the freshest natural ingredients.
The word “mezè” describes a form of socializing as much as a group of dishes. Turkish culture has a deep respect for hospitality, good food, drinks, and conversation are the hallmarks of this hospitality. If you really want to experience Turkish mezè, gather together a big, congenial group and plan to spend the entire evening eating and drinking with family and friends.
