That garlic sauce though. OK, there are many many reasons to love the menu at Mezza, but it makes sense that they sell that sauce by the bottle. The family-run Lebanese restaurant group—this Quinpool gem’s sister restaurant has also won your hearts with its shawarma so many times we retired the category—kills it with authentic delights like baba ghanouj, falafel, taboulé, kabobs, a great drink list and even better service. Mezza’s a perfect spot to share a tableful of dishes, quiet conversation and a bottle of wine.
