since february 20th 2001, fans of lebanese cuisine in atlanta have had a
new place to enjoy it. mezza, lebanese for tapas/appetizers, serves a wide
variety of authentic lebanese specialties in appetizer size portions.
a variety of more than 60 menu items ranging from the traditional dishes,
such as hummus, baba ghannouge, falafel and tabbouleh, prepared by executive
chef and co-owner liza bitar, to new variations and innovations by co-owners
jason and iman bitar. the mother and son team have again joint forces opening
their second restaurant, their first being the cedar tree at emory village.
in an effort to bring the atlanta restaurant-going community a new, authentic
and exiting way of serving lebanese food, a traditional way in which all menu
items are served in small portion allowing patrons to sample and share a large
variety of dishes.
mezza is located in the quiet lavista/oak grove neighborhood in the small and
cozy oak grove center (click here for a map).
along with the great food, mezza serves a wide
selection of wines, imported and domestic and most of all a Lebanese variety.
Including chateau kefraya, chateau muzar and chateau ksara.
of course to complete the meal a variety of tasty desserts such as baklawa,
rice pudding, halawa bi jibin, made form sweet cheese and semolina. home
made ice creams of vanilla with caramelized almonds and moca with caramelized
hazelnuts an out of this world experience. topping it all with real lebanese
coffee better known in the west as turkish coffee. espresso, cappuccino and
fresh brewed coffee are also served.
