Escape the madness and soak up the good vibes at Mezepoli on the Piazza
Enjoy a low-profile year-end celebration with fresh air and even fresher food
Thursday, 9 December 2021 Whether it’s time off with the team or a family get together, end-of-year celebrations are all the more enjoyable when relaxing on the open-air Piazza at Melrose Arch, dining on a sumptuous Mediterranean meze spread from Mezepoli that will satisfy even the broadest range of tastes.
With over 80 items on the food menu, you can while away the afternoon ordering a wide selection and moving from one delicious dish to the next, taking your time to savour the flavours and live in the moment.
Konstantinos ‘Kosta’ Haitas, son of the founders of Mezepoli Restaurant, says that the menu lends itself particularly well to celebratory occasions. “Mediterranean dining is all about real food, made with quality ingredients and prepared to deliver maximum flavour with the least amount of fuss. An end-of-year celebration with us could include some of the more ‘special occasion’ items such as fresh oysters, imported Italian Parma ham and butterflied prawns, as well as real crowd pleasers such as our fried calamari and grilled halloumi.”
“As is the Mediterranean way, we also love seasonal vegetables and offer a wide selection of vegetarian and even vegan meze, so there is no need to worry about dietary requirements for those who prefer to indulge in the more plant-based side of the menu,” he says.
Ordering a variety of luscious dips for the table along with some soft pita bread and a couple of super fresh salads ensures that the feasting can go on uninterrupted with a variety of flavours, colours and textures bound to please every palate as you toast the end of 2021 with a chilled glass of bubbles or a fabulous cocktail.
And it goes without saying that no meal at Mezepoli would ever be complete without sampling a few of their sensational desserts such as the baklava – a classic Mediterranean accompaniment to your coffee while you people-watch on the square – or the best tiramisu in town, a fluffy pillow of mascarpone custard layered with biscuits soaked in the perfect amount of coffee liqueur.
“Our team is ready with the biggest smiles under their masks to welcome you for a memorable, worry-free celebration in our spacious and open environment. We have all COVID protocols in place and are fully prepared to ensure a relaxed and hassle-free experience for all. It’s time to end the year off on a high-note and we at Mezepoli look forward to playing our part in making it a special occasion,” concludes Haitas
